The Canon RF 100-400mm f5.6-8 IS USM Lens is a small, lightweight telephoto lens for EOS R Series cameras that offers a flexible zoom range that brings objects closer with ease. It’s ideal for wildlife, sports, travel, and more. The Canon RF 100-400mm f5.6-8 IS USM Lens is similar in size to the EF 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 IS II USM lens, and it not only reaches 400mm, but it also has fast Nano USM focusing and up to 6 stops of Coordinated IS when used with an EOS R series camera with In-body Image Stabilization, such as the EOS R5 and EOS R6, or 5.5 stops when used with an EOS R/RP camera.

The use of a single Ultra-Low Dispersion lens element towards the front of the lens group corrects chromatic aberration across the zoom range, resulting in sharp, vivid pictures with little colour blur. Both the RF 1.4x and RF 2x tele extenders may be used with the Canon RF 100-400mm f5.6-8 IS USM Lens, giving you an effective maximum focal length of 560mm and 800mm, respectively. The Canon RF 100-400mm f5.6-8 IS USM Lens puts quality, convenience, and control in your hands with a control ring that enables rapid setting changes, including shutter speed and aperture.

Compact, lightweight and high-image quality RF tele zoom lens, with a versatile zoom range of 100-400mm

The lens’s travel-friendly size and weight (identical to the EF 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 IS II USM lens but somewhat lighter) make it simpler to wear with a camera around your neck when walking about for a long period of time, as well as allowing multiple lenses to be carried in a camera bag.

Optical Image Stabilizer with up to 5.5 Stops* of shake correction

The lens and camera communicate Image Stabilization data since RF lenses are built particularly for the RF Mount used on EOS R series cameras. This helps to substantially decrease the influence of camera shake that can occur when operating handheld. This is true while shooting stills and video with up to 5.5 stops of stabilisation* for precise and clear results.

Up to 6 stops of shake correction** when paired with EOS R series cameras featuring In-Body Image Stabilizer (IBIS)

When combined with an EOS R Series camera with In-Body Image Stabilization, such as the EOS R5 and EOS R6, this IS-enabled lens can deliver up to 6 stops of synchronised IS, allowing you to capture astonishingly clear pictures at slower shutter speeds.

Minimum focusing distance of 2.89 feet at 200mm and a maximum magnification of 0.41x at 400mm

The Canon RF 100-400mm f5.6-8 IS USM Lens can capture crisp and detailed photos from a variety of distances, with a minimum focusing distance of 2.89 feet at 200mm. The lens’ close-up capabilities at the 400mm zoom setting are particularly impressive: at its minimum focus distance of 400mm, you can fill the frame with a subject the size of a credit card, giving exceptional versatility and astonishingly clear photos.

High speed, smooth and quiet autofocus with Canon’s Nano USM

Expect quick and accurate focusing with any Canon EOS R-series camera. Because of its mix of silent operation and excellent smoothness of focus adjustments during real recording, the Nano USM focus system is extremely beneficial to video users.

9-blade circular aperture for beautiful bokeh

This lens features a 9-blade circular aperture that isolates your subject from the background while also creating a lovely backdrop that is aesthetically pleasing in itself, so getting a smooth and natural appearing out-of-focus background blur isn’t an issue.

Control Ring for direct setting changes

On the lens barrel of the Canon RF 100-400mm f5.6-8 IS USM Lens is a Control Ring that may be used to modify a variety of parameters such as shutter speed, aperture, ISO, exposure compensation, and more. It effectively adds a third dial to EOS R and RP cameras, and the fourth dial to cameras like the EOS R5 and R6 cameras, as it is located at the front of the lens.

The control ring adds an exceptional connection to any shooting setting with its tactile, readily distinguishable surface and a clicking mechanism that gives real feedback for confident usage while looking through the viewfinder. The clicking mechanism can be removed for a charge at a Canon Factory Service Center location by photographers and filmmakers who want a quiet control ring.

Compatible with optional Canon Extenders RF1.4x^ and RF2x^^

Attach the compatible extra Canon RF extenders to the Canon RF 100-400mm f5.6-8 IS USM Lens to acquire the equivalent of 560mm focal length coverage with the Extender RF 1.4x, or 800mm with the Extender RF 2x, and go even closer to the subject. In fact, the Canon RF 100-400mm f5.6-8 IS USM Lens is the first non-L-series Canon lens to support tele extenders, allowing it to be transformed into a strong telephoto combo with just a little increase in size and weight.

The Canon RF 100-400mm f5.6-8 IS USM Lens increased flexibility and adaptability make it an excellent choice for wildlife photography and more.
