Product Details

With a 100-500mm focal length range, plus 5-stop image stabilisation and L-series build quality, the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM offers performance and image quality like no other thanks to UD lens elements and ASC coatings for unrivalled contrast and sharpness.

  • 100-500mm focal length - For superior telephoto power and versatility
  • 5-stop Image Stabilisation - For ultimate handheld control even in low light
  • Super UD and UD elements - For exceptionally sharp images
  • Dual Nano USM motor - For smooth, fast and near-silent operation
  • Heatshield coating - For consistent operation in high temperatures
  • ASC (Air Sphere Coating) - To prevent flare and ghosting
  • Lens control ring - For extra control over ISO, aperture and shutter

5-Stop Image Stabilizer

The RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM features a new Image Stabilizer offering 5-stops compensation. The combination of this technology and high-speed RF communication means that the performance of this lens surpasses the best technology in the EF range, allowing photographers to choose longer exposures without camera shake affecting the resulting image. And when combined with in-body stabilisation on the EOS R5 and EOS R6, even greater levels of stability are possible.

Dual Nano USM focusing motor

The RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM features dual focus motors. Using two Nano USM AF motors helps drive the lightweight optical elements with speed, precision and control making it ideal for video usage. To ensure high-speed focusing, a more compact lens design and improve close focusing, a floating lens group system was used which required two focus motors. One Nano USM is used for the conventional focusing group and the other for the floating focus group.

Advanced optics and lens coatings

Due to the design of the RF lens mount and the short back focus and large diameter, the Canon lens designers have been able to achieve both higher image quality and a compact optical system. The lens features a combination of ultra-low dispersion (UD) elements to provide stunning image quality and to tackle any possible lens aberrations. Advanced lens coatings such as Air Sphere (ASC) provide a new benchmark in ultimate image quality and sharpness.

9-blade aperture

The RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM aperture system uses 9 aperture blades to produce a round aperture, producing smoother out of focus areas to help the main subject stand out even better against the background.

Enjoy stunning performance up to 500mm

With a 100-500mm zoom range in a compact and portable body, the lens is ideal for travel and wildlife and will go even further thanks to optional 1.4x and 2x extenders.

Achieve excellent contrast and sharpness

See a difference in your images across the zoom range thanks to L-series image quality with a Super UD lens and six UD lenses, plus 5-stop IS for shake-free results.

Fast, smooth, near-silent AF

Dual Nano USM motors enable fast, smooth and near-silent AF while a floating lens group also improves versatility with a close minimum focus distance of 0.9m.

Take the lens anywhere

At 1525g with tripod mount, and 207mm when retracted, the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM is a go-anywhere telephoto zoom. Dust and water seals plus a heat shield coating ensure its durability.

Never take your eye off the subject

Maintain concentration on capturing your moment thanks to the Lens Control Ring which allows you to change various camera settings such as aperture or shutter speed.

With premium glass, snappy autofocus (albeit only when paired with the EOS R5 or R6 bodies) and a longer reach than the popular EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM DSLR lens, the RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L is Canon’s first super-telephoto zoom for the native RF mount.

PhotoReview

The RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1 L IS USM has few rivals in its class when it comes to overall performance.

PC Magazine

The Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM brings big zoom power for sports and nature photographers in the RF system, but does its best work in brighter light.

The Digital Picture

Many referred to 2014 as the "Year of the Lens", and the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens was one of many 2014-announced models. That lens was the hottest, most in-demand model of them all.

This lens is an excellent addition for the RF system. Well balanced, not too heavy and capable of tac-sharp images with or without the extender. Once you are familiar with the need to zoom out beyond 300mm to take the extender, the performance is exemplary for wildlife shooting with its image...

Wex Photo Video

Have only used it 3-4 times, the photo are great, I have to use it on a tripod, too heavy for me to hand hold (i'm 75 hands shake a bit) nothing bad found.

WEX

I bought this lens about a month ago and for a number of reasons (personal) have not been able to use it on more than three or four occasions in the field. However even on those limited occasions it it produced shots I would not have been able to capture with my EF glass.

Purchased the lens for wildlife, particularly birds in flight, with fantastic results with the Canon RF autofocus. I am also very impressed how flexible it is for other uses with relative close focus and wide focal range.

Brilliant piece of kit! Must have for wildlife. Don't forget to update firmware on lens and camera.

Really happy with this lens. I had the 100-400mm markii previously and that is a fantastic piece of glass. I decided to upgrade to avoid the hassle of the converter and the additional 100mm... but what a surprise!

WEX

After reading a review of this lens, I simply had to have it! I take photographs of birds and it is perfect for that. I use a 2x extender when needed and this works excellently. The combination of this lens and the EOS R6 that I bought with it is perfectly amazing.

Wex Photo Video

The lens is performing very well, great image sharpness and the IS together with the IBIS really works as does the AF.

An ideal lens for multi photos, wild life and fast moving objects, cars boats planes sports , very sharp but too expensive.
