Super-telephoto shooting made more accessible

RF 600mm f/11 IS STM has been designed to make super-telephoto shooting more accessible and affordable for the EOS R System Cameras. Delivering high image quality in a compact design, it provides the ability to photograph closer to subjects such as wildlife and sport with photogenic image expression from distance.

  • Compact and lightweight

    Weighing in at just 930g, the RF 600mm f/11 IS STM can be easily taken to outdoor locations and handheld without a tripod. The retractable structure provides unprecedented mobility and allows the lens to be stored compactly.

  • Capture sharp images with powerful Image Stabilizer

    The 5-stop Image Stabilizer reduces camera shake in super-telephoto shooting and allows you to shoot crisp images even with hand-held shooting.

    The leather grain finish of the lens barrel enables easy use and prevents slippage, fingerprint smudges, and scratches.

“Birders are the most obvious target market for the RF 600mm f/11 IS STM lens and its [RF 800mm f/11 IS STM lens] sibling. The combination of affordable price, light weight and effective stabilisation make this a ‘no-brainer’ for keen photographers of birds—and also other types of wildlife. That same combination will make this lens attractive to sports photographers as well as plane and train spotters…”
