Shoot sharp high-contrast portraits, wildlife close-ups and sports action images over distance with the high performance Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM super telephoto lens. Ideal for professional image capture to photo agency standards and also for surveillance, the Canon EF 800mm f/5.6 super telephoto lens boasts in-lens four stop image stabilisation technology for crisp image capture at slow shutter speeds. Aspherical, fluorite, UD and super-UD elements deliver exceptional image quality free from chromatic aberrations and distortions, while a magnesium alloy body weighing just 4.5kgs makes this Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM lens exceptionally portable for field use.
The Canon EF 800mm f/5.6 super telephoto lens is the longest focal length lens in the highly acclaimed Canon L-Series professional lens range. It is constructed from 18 elements in 14 groups, and includes aspherical, fluorite and ultra low dispersion glass components for precise light correction through the optical assembly. Canon’s Super Spectra lens coating features in the design to enhance contrast and achieve accurate colour balance. Resulting images are clear, sharp and packed full of detail, the near-circular 8-blade lens diaphragm offering soft and uniform background blur to help subjects stand out.
Enhancing image capture performance on the Canon EF 800mm f/5.6 super telephoto lens is four stop image stabilisation (IS) technology. It gives photographers the confidence to shoot images at shutter speeds that are up to 4 times slower than normal without increasing image blur from handshake or tripod movement. Automatic pan detection turns off IS in either or both vertical and horizontal axes when tracking subjects for consistently sharp image results.
In AF mode the Canon EF 800mm f/5.6 super telephoto lens delivers exceptionally quick and accurate subject focus. Ultrasonic motors acquire autofocus swiftly in near silence, while excellent holding torque ensures that the lens stops dead at the focus point without overshoot. A full-time manual focus override is available, enabling intuitive fine-tuning of focus with your fingers without exiting AF mode.
