Canon has today announced its new Canon RF 100-300mm F2.8L IS USM telephoto lens, promising a long zoom range with a wide f/2.8 aperture.

While you may be familiar with Canon's current lineup of long prime lenses like the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L USM IS, or short telephoto zooms, such as Canon's RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM, this new super-tele optic marks a new generation of powerful zooms.
