EXTRAORDINARY POWER. INCREDIBLE DETAIL.
Distance is no problem with the RF 1200mm F8L IS USM, and neither is quality. With a 4-stop Image Stabilizer, F8 maximum aperture and a lightweight magnesium alloy body, this super-telephoto offers handheld control with ultimate image quality. Thanks to superb Canon engineering, extraordinary new levels of detail are possible – even when your subject is far away.
Maximum reach, maximum quality
The RF 1200mm F8L IS USM delivers incredible telephoto images and offers the longest native focal length for mirrorless cameras. With a useful F8 aperture and 4-stop Image Stabilizer1 for exceptional results in low light, it surpasses all expectations.
Surprisingly practical, with mind-blowing results
Canon’s most powerful telephoto lens also offers incredible versatility. Optimised weight distribution inspires confidence while Fluorite, UD and Super UD lens elements with advanced coatings deliver stunningly sharp images.
Tough and responsive, for any assignment
The RF 1200mm F8L IS USM’s L-series design puts priority on usability with a minimum focus distance of 4.3m offering a real advantage. Heat insulating paint protects the optics inside while dust and moisture is repelled by Fluorine on the outer elements.
Built for the EOS R-series
The RF 1200mm F8L IS USM sits at the very top of the Canon lens range. An aperture mechanism offers 1/8th stop increments, ideal for video, while the IS system works with in body stabilisation for ultimate stability.
Customisable control with real usability
The RF 1200mm F8L IS USM has a host of custom options with 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 to Canon from another system!
