Canon RF 100-300mm f2.8L IS USM Lens
The Canon RF 100-300mm f2.8L IS USM is a compact and lightweight telephoto lens, ideal for sports and wildlife photography as well as portraiture and red carpet events. The lens has a fast, constant aperture of f2.8 allowing you to produce beautiful bokeh, 5.5 stops of optical IS (up to 6 stops with bodies featuring ibis) as well as fast AF so that you always get the shot.
Ideal for Sports
The 100-300mm is a fantastic choice for sports or wildlife photographers. Its versatile zoom range gives you creative flexibility whether you are capturing images or video. The lens has a constant f2.8 aperture that allows for great subject separation and really makes your images pop.
The Canon RF 100-300mm f2.8L IS USM features a Dual Nano USM focus motor that allows the lens to find focus quickly and accurately. This motor improves electronic floating and focus control to produce outstanding image quality.
Also Great for Video
The 100-300mm is a fantastic choice for videographers. Not only is the focus motor silent but it supports focus breathing correction and prevents focus shift when zooming. This makes it a great lens for use in situations that require discretion such as sporting events or weddings.
Up to 6 Stops of IS
The Canon RF 100-300mm can produce image stabilisation up to 5.5 stops for superior image quality. This can be increased up to 6 stops when the lens is mounted onto a compatible Canon camera with in-built stabilisation. This is great news for handheld photographers and videographers.
Close the Distance
The RF 100-300mm is not just for shooting at a distance. Thanks to a minimum focus distance of 1.8m and a maximum magnification of 0.16x, you can capture all of the details of your subject at a closer range.
High Performance Optics
The lens consists of 23 elements in 18 groups, including 4 ultra-low dispersion lenses, 2 fluorite lenses and 1 glass moulded aspherical lens. A Super Spectra Coating has been applied to the lens elements to create exceptional sharpness in every shot by reducing the appearance of flare and ghosting.
Design & Build
The RF 100-300mm weighs in at 2590g and measures 323.4mm in length, making it very lightweight and portable considering its focal length. The filter diameter is 112mm.
The RF 100-300mm has been weather sealed to match Canon’s super telephoto L series lenses. It also features a Heat Shield white coating to protect the lens in extremely hot conditions.
One Step Beyond
You can combine the RF 100-300mm with the Canon RF 2.0x and Canon RF 1.4x extenders. You can achieve focal lengths of 140-420mm with the 1.4x and an incredible 200-600mm when combined with the 2.0x. But that’s not all. If you use the lens with an APS-C body with an extender attached the focal length can be increased to 224-672mm or 320-960mm.
