Distance is no problem with the RF 1200mm F8L IS USM, an ultra-telephoto lens that sets new standards in optical performance. With a 4-stop Image Stabilizer¹, f/8 maximum aperture and a lightweight magnesium alloy body, this incredible 1200mm telephoto lens offers handheld control with the ultimate in image quality making it a stunning wildlife photography lens that is also excellent at capturing sports and surveillance targets, too. Thanks to superb Canon engineering, extraordinary new levels of detail are possible – even when your subject is far away; that’s because the telephoto’s L-series design puts priority on usability, made even better by a minimum focus distance of just 4.3 m, which allows subjects to be tracked over a greater range of distances.


  • The lens delivers superb telephoto images and offers the longest native focal length for mirrorless cameras, with a useful f/8 aperture and 4-stop Image Stabilizer¹ for amazing results in low light
  • Canon’s lightest and shortest 1200mm L-series lens yet, this powerful telephoto is a perfect lens for bird photography and can also capture faraway sports, wildlife, news and subjects of interest discretely
  • Optimised weight distribution inspires confidence while Fluorite, UD and Super UD lens elements with advanced coatings deliver stunningly sharp images
  • Heat insulating paint protects the optics inside while dust and moisture is repelled by Fluorine on the outer elements
  • An aperture mechanism offers 1/8th stop increments, ideal for video, while the IS system works with in-body stabilisation¹ for ultimate stability
  • Custom options include two focus pre-sets and a customisable AF stop button. It’s fully compatible with RF extenders and focus direction can even be reversed if you’ve come from another system
