Capture safari, aircraft or travel views and shoot the ultimate frame-filling moments in glorious detail that benefit from creative telephoto compression.
Enjoy sharp, shake-free images
Thanks to 4-stop image stabilisation, super sharp telephoto images are possible, and you can achieve great handheld video footage too.
Revolutionary size and weight
Thanks to the RF mount, an F11 aperture and Diffractive Optics, the lens contracts to 281.8 mm in length when stored and weighs only 1260 g.
Focus smoothly and quietly
An STM motor allows smooth, quiet AF while a Lens Control Ring gives intuitive control over settings. Pleasing bokeh is achieved thanks to a bladeless, F11 aperture.
An extreme telephoto for all
Now it’s easy to pack a super telephoto lens in your kitbag with powerful image stabilisation and AF which is available to all enthusiasts who want to travel light.
A revolutionary super telephoto thanks to Diffractive Optics (DO) technology
Canon was the first to commercialise Diffractive Optic (DO) technology by developing its own unique structure. Through the use of DO lens elements it is possible to make the lens compact and lightweight and control chromatic aberration. Combine that optical advantage with the inherent benefits of the wider RF mount – with faster communication speeds to the camera and high optical quality – and you have a compelling super telephoto that is light, affordable, compact and easy to carry.
