800mm Super Telephoto Zoom Lens

RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM is the World’s first super-telephoto zoom lens for mirrorless camera with a telephoto end of 800mm1, providing a 4x zoom range from 200mm to 800mm. This allows for both closeup-shot and long-shot expressions without the need of switching lenses, making composition more flexible. Its 800mm focal length is effective for shooting wild birds, wild animals, airplanes, motorsports, and outdoor sports, which are difficult to get close to because of the distance to the subjects. This lens meets the needs of photo amateurs who want to get a little closer to their subjects and capture their details with greater clarity.

Excellent Mobility

Despite the nature of its 200-800mm super-telephoto zoom lens, RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM weights only approx. 2,050g for comfortable handheld shooting through a series of weight reduction measures. RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM also employs an optimized optical configuration and uses a variable-length zoom type that takes advantage of the RF Mount’s short back focus. The lens features a telescoping first lens group to realize 4x zoom and shorten its overall length, it is only approx. 314.1mm in length at 200mm, providing excellent mobility to the lens.

Weight reduction measures of RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM:

  • The weight of the first zoom lens group that consists of 3 large diameter lenses is reduced significantly by making the distance between the first and second lenses larger while reducing the diameters of the second and third lenses, contributing to significant reduction in overall weight of the lens.
  • Through repeated shape changes and strength simulations, various parts are made lighter without sacrificing strength or robustness.
  • Metal is used for lens exterior parts related to strength, but resin is also used to reduce weight and number of parts. Barrel diameter is also reduced by using a thin Nano USM.
  • The tripod mount has also been made lighter while maintaining its strength.

The variable-length zoom type of RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM: 

  • The overall length of the lens is reduced by the use of a 1st group extension type variable length zoom mechanism.

  • Overall length is reduced by utilizing the short back focus of the RF mount.

  • A multi-group zooming configuration that moves all zoom lens groups except stabilizer optic lens group , fluctuation of optical performance is suppressed in all zoom ranges.

 


Outstanding Image Quality

In order to maintain high image quality at any zoom range, RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM is equipped with a multi-group zooming configuration that moves all zoom lens groups except stabilizer optic lens group. Fluctuation of optical performance is suppressed in all zoom ranges, resulting in high-resolution image. Its 17 elements in 11 groups optical design includes 3 UD lenses to correct chromatic aberration throughout the entire zoom range and delivers crisp clear image.

EOS R3 • ISO 6400 • 1/3200s • f/9 • 800mm

UD Lens 


3 Ultra-Low Dispersion (UD) lens elements correct axial chromatic aberration and chromatic aberration of magnification throughout the entire zoom range and delivers crisp clear image with minimal color bleeding.

Super Spectra Coating


Renowned Super Spectra Coating and optimized shapes of lens elements help to improve anti-ghosting and flare performance.


Compatible with Extender RF1.4x and 2x

RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM is compatible with Extender RF1.4x and 2x at all focal length, which extends the focal length by 1.4 times to 280-1120mm and 2 times to 400-1600mm respectively. Autofocus is possible even with Extender RF1.4x or RF2x attached.

High Speed Auto Focus

RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM is equipped with Nano USM (Ultrasonic Motor), Canon’s proprietary actuator that contributes to the downsizing of lenses. Thanks to its compact yet ample torque performance and rear focusing design, it achieves comfortable high-speed AF similar to that of ring USM.


Supports Focus Breathing Correction

When paired with EOS R-series cameras supporting Focus Breathing Correction, the changes in the angle of view caused by focus movement can be suppressed. It allows users to record natural movies with no discomfort even if focus is changed from foreground to background or vice-versa.


Powerful Image Stabilization up to 5.5-stop 

RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM’s built-in Optical Image Stabilizer offers up to 5.5-stop2 powerful shake compensation. Users can shoot handheld at super telephoto focal length with confidence.

Compatible with Electronic full-time MF


Lens is compatible with Electronic full-time MF5, focus can be adjusted manually with focus ring anytime during ONE SHOT AF or SERVO AF.

Adjustment Ring


Features the Adjustment Ring to adjust the operational feeling (weight of movement) of the zoom ring to a preferred level between SMOOTH and TIGHT.


Tripod Mount Ring


The tripod mount ring is placed in such a way that the weight balance does not change easily even when the total length of the lens changes due to zooming operation.
Moreover, the position of the tripod mount was determined through repeated simulations and experiments, in order to prevent blurring caused by shutter shock throughout the entire zoom range.


White Lens Exterior


As RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM is primarily designed for outdoor use, white paint that suppresses temperature rise due to sunlight is employed despite its classification of Non-L lens series.

Dust-and-water-resistant design3


The lens also features high level of durability and shock resistance with dust-and-water-resistant design3 equivalent to that of L-series lenses.

Bundled with Lens Strap and Lens Hood


Lens Strap 40 for easy carrying of the lens and Lens Hood ET-101 that further enhances flare resistance are bundled with the lens.
