About the Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM

Explore the world with a new perspective

Every now and then a new lens design comes out that makes me sit up and go "Whoa!" Canon's RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM is one such example. This ultra-capable super telephoto lens combines superb optics with a staggering range and nearly unparalleled capability. 

This "ultra zoom" lens will let you photograph subjects that are relatively close, like your dog playing in the yard. But with a flick of the wrist, you can extend this lens all the way out to 500mm and capture detailed photos of far-away wildlife, distant sunsets, or even the moon.

I think that photojournalists will especially like this versatile lens for its rugged reliability and ability to produce consistent, high-quality images — even in adverse conditions.

Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM L Series super telephoto zoom lens

A retractable design makes this lens smaller and easier to store and transport when not in use.

It all starts with image quality

If you own a Canon EOS R Series camera, you're probably hip to the company's exceptional lineup of RF-mount lenses. The RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM complements the other high-end glass in Canon's upper-echelon L Series lineup, offering superb image and build quality.

You'll enjoy razor-sharp focus, vibrant, punchy colors, and beautiful out-of-focus elements across this lens' wide focal range.

Outstanding focus and image stabilization

One of the big improvements this lens offers over Canon's previous super-zoom models is a new type of ultrasonic motor technology called Nano USM, which uses two independent but highly synchronized focusing motors — a first for Canon autofocus lenses.

That means you'll enjoy lightning-fast focusing on your subject, along with quiet, buttery smooth focus transition when shooting video. This lens even offers three different image stabilization modes, which are selectable with a barrel-mounted switch.
