Canon RF 200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS USM Lens Summary

Canon has set another world first for mirrorless EOS R camera users with the super telephoto Canon RF 200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS USM Lens. With a maximum 800mm focal width it offers the world’s longest zoom range for sports and wildlife photographers who capture distant subjects, while remaining extremely portable and lightweight at just 2050g. To cover subjects at even greater distances you can even mount the RF Extender 1.4x or 2x RF Extender, for up to 1600mm of versatile zoom reach.

Built-in image stabilisation (IS) reduces camera shake by 5.5-stops, which increases to an impressive 7.5-stops when combined with body stabilisation, which is found in cameras throughout the EOS R range. IS at this level ensures photographers are able to shoot in low light scenarios while handholding the lens, and still come away with sharp results.

A Nano USM motor delivers smooth and quiet AF, and you can expect consistently high image quality thanks to the optical design, which includes UD lens elements to reduce chromatic aberration.

Photographers who opt to customise their Canon mirrorless lenses benefit from a combined focus and control ring that can be programmed to change various settings such as shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation and ISO.

The RF 200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS USM super telephoto lens is also designed to be weather resistant for reliable performance in poor conditions outdoors. Furthermore, Canon’s tried-and-tested Super Spectra Coating helps to reduce flare and ghosting when shooting backlit images, or scenes with lots of incidental light.

Canon RF 200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS USM Lens in More Detail

Super telephoto for wildlife and sports

With a 200-800mm zoom range the RF 200-800mm is the most versatile super telephoto lens for wildlife, sports and other distant subjects. The minimum focus distance of 0.8m further expands its versatility, while compatibility with optional lens teleconverters (extenders) means that you can zoom in even closer to the action, no matter how distant.

A compact design and weight of around 2kg allows you to work handheld for longer periods without a tripod or monopod, although additional support can be of benefit in situations where your position remains static.

Fast and quiet AF

Canon has employed their Nano USM motor technology, which combines the speed of ring-type USM with quiet and smooth STM focusing. This system delivers precise smooth focusing with fine control over speed, as well as near-silent operation, as seen in models such as the RF 100-500mm, RF 24-70mm F/2.8L and similar USM lenses. Whether the subject is stationary or fast moving this super telephoto lens keeps up with high speed and precision.

Up to 7.5-stops image stabilisation

Despite its compact and lightweight design, the RF 200-800mm f/6.3-9 Lens includes built-in image stabilisation, which reduces camera shake by 5.5-stops.

Canon’s combined lens and body stabilisation is also extremely effective, increasing shake reduction up to 7.5-stops when combined with a camera such as the EOS R3, EOS R5 and R6 Mark II to name a few.

This enables you to work in lower light at slower shutter speeds, while maintaining image quality by keeping ISO as low as possible. The outcome is a greater number of sharp images during challenging situations, whether capturing birds in flight or wind surfers at sunset.

Advanced optics for high image quality

In order to render high image quality Canon has developed an optical design for the 200-800mm RF, which includes UD lens elements. Ultra-low-dispersion (UD) lenses, utilise optical glass with a low refractive index and low dispersion, resulting in reduced chromatic aberration and high image quality.

Furthermore, a multi-layered Super Spectra Coating eliminates ghosting and flare caused by lens surface reflections, while maintaining optimum colour balance. This enables you to capture backlit subjects with higher contrast and reduced flare in the results.

Customisation and control

In line with many Canon mirrorless lenses, the RF 200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS USM combines a focus ring with control ring. The ability to manual focus is ideal in particular situations, while the control ring can be customised to adjust camera settings and enhance your workflow.

Weather resistant design

For reliable use during inclement conditions the RF 200-800mm lens is sealed in several locations. When combined with a weather sealed camera body you can shoot in light rain and dusty environments with less worrying about inclement conditions.

Our Verdict

Thanks to a combination of zoom reach, high image quality and optical stabilisation, the Canon RF 200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS USM super telephoto lens is an attractive choice for bird and wildlife photography, sports or other distant subjects.

When shooting at 800mm or with an optional lens teleconverter the frame can be filled with details from your subject, whether that be surfers, kayakers or details from a sporting event. You can more effectively capture aircraft overhead, outdoor events, and even zoom in to fill the frame with the moon if you choose.

Despite being extremely lightweight at 2050g this Canon lens includes highly effective image stabilisation, with up to 7.5-stops advantage when combined with camera IBIS. With so much stabilisation to hand you are better equipped to capture sharp results in low light and challenging situations, whilst retaining high image quality when using lower ISO values.

Focusing is responsive and quiet thanks to tried-and-tested Nano USM technology, which helps you keep up even with fast moving subjects quite effectively. The lens can be customised via the control ring, which doubles as the manual focus ring, opening up plenty of opportunities to streamline the lens to suit your workflow and capitalise on unique demands for different subjects.

Look no further than the RF 200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS USM if you capture distant subjects and need to get closer to the action with a single, extremely versatile super telephoto zoom.
