Enter the ‘new normal’ when it comes to Canon’s new super small and light budget mega-telephoto prime lenses for mirrorless cameras – the long and slender Canon RF 800mm f/11 IS STM and Canon RF 600mm f/11 IS STM lenses. Both primes are super-long, super lightweight and super affordable, yet both have a fixed aperture of f/11.

These sleek, black, budget telephotos both have image stabilization, with the Canon RF 800mm f/11 IS STM possessing 4 stops of IS, and the Canon RF 600mm f/11 IS STM offering 5 stops. And the IS on the lenses also syncs with the in-body image stabilization on the Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6.
