Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM

Over yonder, brought closer. By super telephoto.

Combining outstanding build quality and incredible optical performance, the EF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM is a professional-grade super telephoto lens that allows you to capture the world and bring it closer. Utilising magnesium alloy in its construction, this fully weather sealed lens is solidly built and durable, and is tough enough to stand up to the rigours of full time professional use. While it may not be a lightweight lens, it is as small and compact as an 800mm f/5.6 lens can be. Fixed to a monopod or tripod, this lens is the perfect wildlife and sports photography lens – and for those occasional handheld shots, Canon’s excellent 4-stop Image Stabilisation is always ready for action. With its extremely fast and accurate ring-type USM, autofocusing is a breeze, while the lens’ AI Servo tracking accuracy makes it easy to stay focused on the action. Add to that its simply exceptional image quality – with corner-to-corner sharpness, superb bokeh, and stunning colour and contrast – and you have one remarkable super telephoto.
