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.
