Canon Unveils Versatile new RF 200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens


Canon has announced the development of the new RF 200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM Lens, providing an impressively broad 20x zoom range for EOS R cameras. Designed for wildlife, aviation, and sports photographers, the lightweight super-telephoto zoom provides extensive reach from 200mm to 800mm.

Weighing just 4.5 lbs, the lens features up to 5.5 stops of optical image stabilisation for sharp handheld shots. Fast, quiet Nano USM focus suits stills and video. The lens offers environmental sealing for outdoor use.

According to Canon, the 200-800mm maintains excellent image quality and speed when paired with 1.4x and 2x RF teleconverters. This allows for a maximum 35mm equivalent focal length of 1600mm.

“The RF 200-800mm is ideal for photographers seeking extended reach and versatility,” said Canon exec Yasuyuki Wakabayashi. The impressive zoom range can capture wide landscapes to tight telephoto perspectives.
