A powerful 70-200mm zoom lens in a compact size, the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM features state-of-the-art optics and image stabilization to help you achieve clear, beautiful imagery — even at a distance. This L-series lens maintains a constant f/2.8 aperture through the entire zoom range, generating bright video and stills, even in low-light situations. Designed for maximum compatibility with Canon’s EOS R series cameras, the dust- and weather-resistant construction of the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM lens is perfect for wildlife and sports photographers, but performs equally well when shooting in the studio.
Made to move
The compact, lightweight design of the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM lens is surprisingly tough. Featuring dust- and weather-resistant construction in the lens mount, switch panel and all rings, Canon’s lightest and shortest 70-200mm f/2.8 lens is perfect on-location. Fluorine coatings on the front and rearmost surfaces further protect against dirt and dust and make any fingerprints easier to remove. And just like the rest of Canon’s RF lenses, the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM is designed with a 12-pin communication system, simplifying complex operations and accelerating communication.
A first for Canon’s autofocus lenses, two Nano USM focus motors make the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM lens both fast and quiet, while still retaining its compact size. A separate control ring near the back of the lens allows you to directly adjust a number of additional functions, including shutter speed and aperture.
Optics you have to see to believe
Boasting 17 elements in 13 groups, the optical system in the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM lens was engineered specifically for the RF mount. One Ultra-Low Dispersion (UD) element and one Super UD element work together to help minimize chromatic aberrations and color fringing, resulting in clear, accurate color. Two aspherical elements correct distortion to help improve image clarity, while an Air Sphere Coating (ASC) helps reduce backlit flaring and ghosting.
Get closer to the action
Designed to work optimally with an EOS R series camera, the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM lens seamlessly communicates with the camera to dramatically reduce camera-shake and blur in both video and still photos. Achieve crystal clear imagery with up to five stops of stabilization. A minimum focusing distance of 2.3 ft/0.7m and a maximum magnification of .23x makes the Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS USM perfect for any number of shooting situations.
