Achieve excellent contrast and sharpness
See a difference in your images across the zoom range thanks to L-series image quality with a Super UD lens and six UD lenses, plus 5-stop IS for shake-free results.
Fast, smooth, near silent AF
Dual Nano USM motors enable fast, smooth and near silent AF while a floating lens group also improves versatility with a close minimum focus distance of 0.9m.
Take the lens anywhere
At 1530g with tripod mount, and 207mm when retracted, the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM is a go-anywhere telephoto zoom. Dust and water seals plus a heat shield coating ensure its durability.
Never take your eye off the subject
Maintain concentration on capturing your moment thanks to the Lens Control Ring which allows you to change various camera settings such as aperture or shutter speed.
Great lens for...
Equip yourself with great flexibility and extra reach (than a more traditional 100-400mm lens) with a 100-500mm focal range. Be confident of performance thanks to ASC lens coatings and weather sealing, making this lens perfect for testing environments.
An impressive 5-stops optical IS (CIPA standard) - up to 6 stops with combined in-body IS and optical IS with EOS R5 & EOS R6 - and dual nano USM AF motors, combined with super UD and UD lens elements, means the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM delivers sharp, shake-free capturing of high-speed action stills.
