High Performance L-series versatile Super-Telephoto Zoom RF Lens

The RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens is a highly portable option for EOS R series camera users from professionals to advanced amateurs shooting sports, wildlife, photojournalism, aviation subjects and more, providing a wide zoom range from medium telephoto to super telephoto, with high quality results.

Optical Image Stabilization with up to 5 Stops* of Shake Correction

The RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens is designed to work in conjunction with EOS R series cameras, with both the camera and the lens sharing data to dramatically reduce camera-shake blur, regardless of the situation, whether shooting video or stills. With up to 5 stops** of optical image stabilization, it delivers impressively clear results.

Three Image Stabilization Modes (Standard, Panning, and during exposure only) for Creative Versatility

Three image stabilization modes (standard, panning, and during exposure only) provide corrective camera shake functions for outstanding results in a wide range of shooting situations. These include when shooting stationary subjects like portraits (IS Mode 1); helping to correct vertical camera shake when panning horizontally, or horizontal camera shake when panning vertically, depending on the camera’s orientation (IS Mode 2); and when tracking movement during a sporting event, for example (IS Mode 3).

High Speed, Smooth and Quiet Auto Focus with Dual Nano USM

The RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens uses two NANO USM focus motors which provide a near-silent, power saving, and high-speed autofocus operation so fast moving subjects can more accurately be tracked and captured without missing the moment for both stills and movies.

Minimum Focusing Distance of 2.95 ft. / 0.9 m**

With a minimum focusing distance of 2.95 ft./0.9m (at 100mm or 3.9 ft./1.2m at 500mm), the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens is capable of capturing sharp and detailed images from various distances. Whether you're photographing birds, landscapes or a sporting event, the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM lens' combination of impressive minimum focusing distance and a maximum magnification of 0.33x at 500mm provides outstanding versatility and impressively sharp images.

Rotation-type Zoom Ring and Torque Adjustment allows for Precise Composition or Traveling Convenience

12-pin Communication System

Designed to quickly communicate shooting data, the RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM features the 12 pin communication system inherent in all RF lenses. This helps coordinate complex processes requiring high-speed communication and large data transfer, such as fast AF response with broader AF area, Image Stabilization, the Digital Lens Optimizer, and even the adjustment of the customizable Lens Control Ring for a quick and efficient user experience.
