The RF 800mm 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.
Weighing in at just 1,260g, the RF 800mm 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.
The 4-stop Image Stabilizer reduces camera shake in super-telephoto shooting and allows you to shoot crisp images even with hand-held shooting.
High-speed, high-precision focus drive can be achieved so that fast-moving subjects can be captured without missing the desired moment. The use of a Stepping Motor (STM) achieves quiet and smooth AF during movie shooting
Equipped with a control ring unique to the RF lenses offering customisable control over shutter speed, ISO or exposure compensation.
The leather grain finish of the lens barrel enables easy use and prevents slippage, fingerprint smudges, and scratches.
“…[RF 800mm f/11 IS STM lens] could also be attractive to some sports photographers, particularly those who shoot with long distances to their subjects (sailing comes immediately to mind). Plane spotters could also find this lens useful as it’s light enough to use hand-held at air shows and when photographing aerobatics. It’s also great for taking photographs of the moon…”
