With an advanced 5.5-stop Image Stabilizer, great close focusing capability plus the powerful reach of a telephoto, it’s a stunning affordable lens that will bring those important moments to you.

Reach those distant subjects with ease

The RF 100-400MM F5.6-8 IS USM’s zoom range gives you the power and flexibility to capture a subject both close and even far away. It’s ideal for sports photography, wildlife or a day trip to the park. 

Super sharp and highly stable

Powerful 5.5-stop Optical Image Stabilisation 2 gives the RF 100-400MM F5.6-8 IS USM a great advantage for achieving sharp handheld stills and smooth movies with no need for a tripod to weigh you down.

Revolutionary size and weight

Responsive performance with smooth, fast AF

Product Reviews


The RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM is a lens many owners of Canon’s EOS R cameras have been waiting for.

Digital Camera World

If you’ve been waiting for a typically compact 70-300mm telephoto zoom to come along in RF mount, you can forget about that now. The RF 100-400mm is about the same size and weight but gives extra telephoto reach, coupled with a rapid autofocus system, 5.5-stop image stabilization and impressive...

The Digital Picture

For those not requiring the widest aperture or professional build quality and features, for those not interested in carrying the size and weight professional features require, for those not requiring the ultimate image quality, and for those not able to afford a pro-grade price, the Canon RF...

Camera Jabber

Canon has been developing its RF lens range at a steady pace and it’s good to see that it is considering the needs of enthusiast photographers as well as professionals. The RF 400mm F2.8L IS USM, which is aimed squarely at pro wildlife photographers, retails for £12,440/$11,999 and the RF 100-500mm...

Amateur Photographer

Canon’s low-cost RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 offers a lot of reach and utility for the price, but does it also offer the image quality, asks Damien Demolder

Been using the RF 100-400 now for a month I was a bit worried at first thought I made a mistake as I own a L series 70-200 but my money would not go the L series 100-500 so when canon release this one I took a gamble and I so impressed with the results it's as pulled off super sharpe images

Castle Cameras

Love it! Delivers very good results & handles well. Importantly for me it is also lightweight.


I'm using this as a 'keen amateur" so price is an important consideration, for the good range of focal lengths, this is excellent value, one would obviously expect good optical quality from a Canon lens but this has exceeded my expectations.

Castle Cameras

Fantastic lens, light in weight and produces sharp images.


Very light to carry seems to get very good results, at the moment I am pairing it with 1.4 extender and it seems to work brilliantly and gives me the extra reach, which is great for wildlife and birding.

Clifton Cameras

Excellent low noise camera (an R6), sharpness and light weight long lens. LCD and viewfinder are OK, but could be a bit sharper. Fairly accurate lens tracking on moving subjects. Fast autofocus. OK build quality for a light weight package.

Excellent lens. The lightweight makes it ideal for easy use. Paired with my R6, it was a perfect fit on the first outing. Also, a very economical choice for anyone who can’t afford the RF-mount L lenses.
