The Canon RF 600mm f4 L IS USM is a specialised super-telephoto lens that affords remarkable image quality whatever the weather. It has been designed around the RF lens mount, delivering lightning-fast focusing, 5 stops of intuitive image stabilisation and edge-to-edge clarity. The sizeable f4 maximum aperture excels in low-light conditions, granting sensational depth-of-field control and reliable image quality throughout. This lens is well-suited to sporting events, safaris, and wildlife photography - with ASC (Air Sphere Coating) minimising the effects of ghosting and flare. You have the option between three key manual-focus speeds for precise control, whilst two custom presets can be saved for fast-action recall. If autofocus is more your thing, the dual-powered ring-type USM focus drive guarantees speed and a quiet response; allowing you to track fast-moving subjects and obtain initial focus almost immediately. This lens is also dust and moisture resistant - truly optimised for the great outdoors.

Image Contrast and Resolution
The large f4 maximum aperture affords excellent low-light performance as well as intuitive depth-of-field control. In regard to optical construction, this 60mm super-telephoto lens consists of 17 elements in 13 groups, with a 9-blade aperture. To ensure pro-level image contrast and resolution, it utilises high-end fluorite glass, as well as Air Sphere Coating technology to minimise the negative effects of ghosting and flare - even in difficult lighting conditions. Impressive image-quality is guaranteed throughout the full aperture range all the way up to the maximum f4, with both the fluorite and Super UD glass controlling negative distortions and enhancing sharpness. To minimise flare even further, Super Spectra coating has been added to the aforementioned ASP; leaving you with edge-to-edge clarity, contrast, and a stunning final image.
Auto/Manual Focus Hybrid
The dual-powered ring-type USM focus drive prioritises speed and a near-silent response, allowing you to efficiently track fast-moving subjects within the frame. Initial focus can, therefore, be obtained almost immediately with a high-speed CPU and intricately formed AF algorithms. To further enhance autofocus functionality and efficiency, the dual-powered focus drive draws more current from compatible cameras. The custom AF start buttons are also placed perfectly song the lens barrel to suit your shooting stance, giving access to various commands when you draw the camera to your eye.
When it comes to tactile manual focus movements, the Canon RF 600mm f4 L IS USM lens excels with three available speeds. For smoother and more intricate focus changes, Full-Time MF allows adjustments to be made without having to switch between focus modes. Further to this, you have the ability to save two custom focus presets for fast-action recall, ideal for quick reactions and rapid pull focus is required when shooting video.
