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.
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.
