Canon RF 600mm Lens
Cameras are capable of capturing breathtaking photos and videos. However, this wouldn’t be possible if they weren’t equipped with an equally powerful camera lens. One benefit of cameras is their use of an interchangeable lens system, so you can swap out lenses on the fly. One excellent lens available is the Canon RF 600mm f/11 IS STM Lens (3986C002). With its extremely long 600 millimeter focal length, it’s capable of taking photos from a great distance away. It’s also lightweight, making it great for bird, wildlife, outdoor sports, and aviation photos. Plus, it has built-in optical image stabilization with up to 5 stops of shake correction, so you won’t have to worry about blurry photos when taking your shot. Once you see the quality of the photos taken with this lens, you’ll know it’s the perfect lens for your camera.
The Canon RF 600mm Lens was designed to be a more portable lens option when compared to its EF counterparts. Since you can retract the lens when you’re not shooting, it can become compact, making it easy to store and take with you when on the go. Plus, its 600mm range provide more reach when viewing distant subjects. It also utilizes gapless dual-layered diffractive optical elements. This helps by reducing chromatic aberrations, resulting in clear and detailed photos. This Canon lens also has built-in IS with up to five stops of shake correction. This allows the lens to significantly reduce camera shake, and stabilize the image when shooting. If 600mm isn’t enough for you, the lens is compatible with both the RF Extender 1.4x and RF Extender 2x, so now you can get even closer to your subject.

First Compact and Lightweight 600mm Super Telephoto RF Lens
The RF600mm F11 IS STM Lens is the first 600mm super-telephoto in the RF lens lineup and is more portable than its EF counterparts in this category because of its design advantage. The 600mm range provides a far reach not only in distance to the subject, but also in terms of who can access it with its smaller super-telephoto footprint, and lighter weight.
Excellent Portability made Easier with an Extending/Retracting Locking Lens Barrel Design
With a design that enables you to retract the lens barrel when not shooting, the lens is even more compact so it can more easily be stored or carried in a bag with additional lenses and accessories. When you’re ready to shoot, just unlock to extend the lens barrel, lock it in place for stability and capture your shots, then unlock, retract, and store again to easily move to your next destination.
Gapless double-layer Diffractive Optics (DO) reduce Chromatic Aberration for High Image Quality
The use of gapless dual-layered diffractive optical elements helps reduce chromatic aberrations so your images are clear and detailed for high-quality results all around. And because one DO lens has the optical characteristics of multiple lenses, this contributes to the light weight of the lens itself, as well.
High Image Quality at a fixed f/11 Aperture
Impressive results are always the goal and with the RF600mm lens and its use of diffractive optic elements, chromatic aberration can be significantly reduced to achieve clear images with minimal color fringing, even at a fixed aperture of F11. This means detailed results of landscapes and more, even from a distance.
Optical Image Stabilization with up to 5 Stops* of Shake Correction
Steady and clear images aren’t always the easiest to come by, especially when shooting with a super-telephoto lens, but with the powerful image stabilization function in the RF600mm, you can feel far more confident it won’t be an issue. Whether shooting handheld or with a monopod, the built-in IS with up to 5 stops* of shake correction helps to significantly reduce camera shake to stabilize the image and get you the results you want and need.
Lead Screw-type STM enables Smooth Autofocusing for Still-image and Video Shooting
The use of a lead screw-type STM focus motor means smooth and quiet autofocus can be achieved whether you’re shooting stills or tracking a subject while shooting video. While it’s nice to be near-silent anyway, it’s especially important in instances where you’re trying to capture the flight of a wild bird or the relaxation of a wild animal. With the STM feature of the RF600mm, you can capture the scene while significantly reducing the chance of the subject being disturbed.
Control Ring for Direct Setting Changes
Like all RF lenses before it, the RF600mm lens comes with a customizable and easily accessible control ring so you can change settings like shutter speed, aperture and ISO while still looking through the viewfinder.
12-pin Communication System
A 12 pin connection between your EOS R series camera and the lens means communication at a higher speed with larger amounts of data transfer, enabling incredibly fast Autofocus calculations, impressive image stabilization and even Control Ring adjustments.
Compatible with FLEX1.4/FLEX2 Extenders for 840mm/1200mm
If 600mm isn’t far-reaching enough, the RF600mm lens is compatible with both the RF Extender 1.4x and RF Extender 2x to help get you even closer, up to 840mm with the 1.4x or 1200mm using the 2x. This added flexibility and versatility helps make the RF600mm an amazing option for your landscape, wildlife, sports photography and more.
