Lightweight Design for Mobile Shooting
At 1,370g (excluding tripod mount), the Canon RF 100-500mm f4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens is remarkably lightweight for a high-powered zoom. It’s easy to handle and transport, keeping both you and your kit lighter for more agile shooting. Feel free to pursue nature, news, sports shots without feeling weighed down.
Excellent L Series Image Quality
The RF 100-500mm lens by Canon exhibits L series excellence in every shot. Its high-precision optical design delivers excellent edge-to-edge image quality at all focal lengths. One super UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) and six UD lenses effectively minimise chromatic aberration, keeping colours distinct, edges defined and background blur natural. Thanks to Canon’s Air Sphere Coating (ASC) you’ll capture clear, vivid shots with minimal ghosting or flare.
5-stop Image Stabilisation + Movie Digital IS
Without a tripod, it’s harder to get sharp results with telephoto lenses. But the Canon RF 100-500mm f4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens’ inbuilt image stabiliser (IS) changes all that. With powerful camera shake correction, IS has the same effect as using shutter speeds 5 stops faster. Simply set the IS mode switch to one of three modes—1 for stationary subjects, 2 for panning, or 3 for irregular movement—to best suit the task at hand. 5-stop Movie Digital IS provides yet more stability so you can record smooth, steady video handheld or while walking.
Sharp, Silent Autofocus for Stills and Video
Powered by two Nano USM (ultrasonic motors), autofocus in the Canon 100-500mm f4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens is impressively fast, precise, smooth and silent. Whether shooting stills or video you’ll be able to capture fleeting moments sharply and without disturbing your subject.
Enjoy seamless control right at your fingertips. Like many Canon RF lenses, the Canon 100-500mm f4.5-7.1 L IS USM comes equipped with a programmable control ring that can adjust settings like aperture and ISO to have better exposure compensation. This means you’ll spend less time focusing on your camera and more time on taking the shot.
