Canon’s onslaught of new lenses continues with the Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM – a versatile new super telephoto zoom aimed at enthusiasts and professionals capturing sport, wildlife, aviation and video. 

The Canon RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS is a reliable, durable and compact optic, with one Super UD lens (ultra-low dispersion) and six regular UD lenses to effectively suppress chromatic aberration as well as ghosting and flare across the entire 100-500mm zoom range, for high-resolution, high-contrast image quality from maximum apertures.
