Canon RF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM
(From Canon lens literature) Delivering high-performance for professional photographers as well as inheriting the optics of the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM model, the RF400mm F2.8 L IS USM is the go-to choice to help capture superb shots of sports, wildlife and more. Its optical image stabilization system with up to 5.5 stops* of shake correction, including three IS operation modes, helps to deliver sharp results – whether hand-held or mounted on a monopod. For brilliantly clear results even in challenging situations, Super Spectra Coatings (SSC) and Air Sphere Coatings (ASC) help minimize ghosting and flare. The RF400mm F2.8 L IS USM is also compatible with both the RF 1.4x and 2x Extenders to get you even closer to the subject.
High-performance, Wide-aperture 400mm f/2.8 Super-telephoto Lens, Exclusively for EOS R-series cameras
Inheriting the optics of the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM, the same high image quality is maintained in the RF400mm F2.8 L IS USM with outstanding sharpness and contrast, center to corner, even at maximum aperture. A combination of Fluorite and Super UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) glass is at the heart of this lens’s outstanding optical performance. At the widest aperture of f/2.8, chromatic aberration is significantly reduced, to achieve tack-sharp images with minimal color fringing. This means detailed results in any shooting condition, particularly in low light levels.
Optically Identical to EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM lens
The latest EF version of the 400mm f/2.8L IS lens, introduced in late 2018, preserved the legendary sharpness of previous EF 400mm f/2.8L lenses, but with a dramatic reduction in overall weight. The RF version, dedicated to EOS R-series cameras, preserves this advantage, providing outstanding handling for a super-telephoto lens with an f/2.8 maximum aperture. Numerous optical and mechanical steps combine for this supremely light weight, transforming the RF400mm F2.8L IS USM into a lens that’s equally at home in situations requiring mobility and portability — such as motorsports and wildlife — as it is fixed on home plate at a night baseball game. And, since it uses the same optical design as the EF version III lens, the same superb image quality can be expected.
Optical Image Stabilization with up to 5.5 Stops* of Shake Correction, Including Three IS Operation Modes
The RF400mm F2.8 L IS USM features an Optical Image Stabilizer system that provides up to 5.5 stops* of shake correction, delivering consistent and sharp results. Whether hand-held or mounted on a monopod (or other devices allowing mobile positioning), the lens’s Image Stabilization can deliver clear image detail in low-light situations or at lower ISOs. This applies when capturing both stills and video, for stable shooting, and sharp final imagery.
