The Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM is a short- to super-telephoto lens. It features a sleek and portable form factor. In addition, optical image stabilisation helps steady photos and videos by up to five stops. Finally, a new optical design reduces chromatic aberrations and color fringing throughout the zoom range.
Dual Nano USM focus system delivers fast, nearly silent autofocus performance with full-time manual override. Also, a unique Control Ring enables control over exposure settings from the lens. Additionally, the RF 100-500mm is weather sealed. In addition, a fluorine coating to protect the front and rear elements.
Features of the Canon RF 100-500m lens:
- Versatile telephoto zoom lens designed for use with Canon RF-mount mirrorless cameras.
- Six UD (Ultra-Low Dispersion) elements and one Super UD element help to minimise chromatic aberrations and color fringing
- An Optical Image Stabiliser helps to minimise the appearance of camera shake by five stops.
- Three distinct IS modes are available. For example: standard single-shot mode; panning-optimised mode; and a mode that only activates the Image Stabiliser during the exposure.
- Smooth and nearly silent autofocus suits both photography and video applications.
- Full-time manual focus control when working in the one-shot AF mode.
- A Configurable Control Ring adjusts a variety of exposure settings. These include aperture, ISO, and exposure compensation.
- A protective fluorine coating, applied to the front and rear elements resists fingerprints and smudges
- The RF 100-500 has a weather-resistant design. This protects against dust and moisture to enable its use in inclement conditions.
- Rotation-type zoom ring features torque adjustment capabilities. The result is the ability to fine-tune the handling of the lens.
- Included lens hood features a side window to allow for easier adjustment of specialised rotating filters.
- Finally, the RF 100-500 is compatible with the RF 1.4x and RF 2x teleconverters. When used within the 300-500mm range of the lens, this further extends the effective focal length range.
