Lighter and Smaller

The RF 70-200mm f2.8 L IS USM has been designed to achieve the much loved 70-200mm zoom range in just 146mm (at it's shortest length). This makes the lens approximately 27% shorter and 28% lighter than it's EF equivalent.

  • Constant f/2.8 aperture throughout the zoom range

    The RF 70-200mm f2.8 L IS USM takes full advantage of the wide diameter and short back focus of Canon’s RF mount to achieve a constant aperture value of f/2.8.

  • Two Nano USMs

    Stay discreet and in control thanks to rapid focusing from two high performance Nano USM motors that ensure the lens locks onto a subject, so you’ll never miss a moment.

Reduce the appearance of shake in your photos with the 5 stop Image Stabiliser with Dual Sensing IS for stills and Combination IS for movies. The IS mode switch on the lens also enables you to select the best mode for your shooting needs: IS mode 1 for still subjects, IS mode 2 for panning and IS mode 3 for irregular movement.

  • RF 70-200mm f2.8 L IS USM water and dust resistance
    Water and Dust Resistance

    By adopting a water and dust resistant construction, sealing is applied to the joining sections and switch panels to prevent water and dust from entering the inside of the lens. The fluorine coating on the surface of the front and rear elements ensure that oil and water is easily repelled and can be easily wiped off with just a dry cloth, without the use of solvent.
