Canon releases two new RF super-telephoto prime lenses RF600 and RF800
On July 9, 2020, Canon Co., Ltd. announced the launch of two new entry-level RF super-telephoto prime lenses, the RF600mmF11ISSTM and RF800mmF11ISSTM. Both new lenses adopt a small and lightweight design. Compared with the EF mount super telephoto lens, the new lens is “small and exquisite”, not only easy to carry, but also convenient for handheld shooting, greatly improving portability and operability. In the past, the relatively high price of super telephoto lenses was unbearable for ordinary enthusiasts. However, the two new products released this time lower the threshold for purchasing super telephoto lenses at their affordable prices, allowing more users to appreciate super telephoto lenses. The charm of creation.

The charm of super telephoto lens shooting is that it can zoom in to shoot long-distance subjects that cannot be approached through the super long focal length, and present a more impactful picture with a unique perspective. Such as: zooming in and shooting subjects such as airplanes, railways, and sports that can only be shot from a long distance, or shooting wild birds and wild animals that are easy to be alert from a distance without getting the other person’s attention. Subject. Experience the world with shocking pictures that can only be captured with a super telephoto lens.

and EOSR series micro-manufacturing team work together to create an entry-level super-telephoto experience
combines EOSR system camera and lens technology Two new compact and lightweight super-telephoto lenses, RF600mmF11ISSTM and RF800mmF11ISSTM, can be widely used from advanced photography enthusiasts to entry-level users of super-telephoto shooting, and enjoy the various fun of super-telephoto shooting that was impossible in the past. It can also be used with two RF extenders. When RF1.4* or RF2* is installed, the focal length is extended by 1.4 times or 2 times, and the aperture is reduced to F16 or F22, respectively. A longer focal length can not only bring the distant scene closer, but also further close-up the scene in the distant scene, expanding the expressiveness of the photo. Even if the lens aperture is reduced to F22, when used with EOSR series cameras, autofocus can also be performed thanks to Canon 1’s full-pixel dual-core CMOSAF technology. At the same time, the bright and easy-to-observe electronic viewfinder used by the full-frame micro-camera also allows the photographer to maintain comfortable operability during the creation of super-telephoto images. In terms of image quality, the high-performance CMOS image sensor and DIGIC digital image processor of the EOSR series full-frame micro-cameras enable it to take high-quality photos even at high ISO sensitivity settings. In addition, the IS image stabilizer equipped with the lens can greatly suppress the impact of camera shake on the screen during shooting.

breaks the tradition and realizes further compact and lightweight design
RF600mmF11ISSTM and RF800mmF11ISSTM adopt a small and lightweight new concept design, using DO lenses, F11 fixed aperture and The design of high-strength and light-weight plastic parts 2 greatly reduces the weight and volume of the lens, subverting the traditional impression that the super telephoto fixed focus lens is large and heavy. Both super telephoto lenses have a retractable design. When carrying, shrink the lens and store it in a bag along with other lenses and accessories. When shooting, pull out the lens barrel to use. By rotating the locking ring on the bayonet, the lens shooting position and retracted position can be locked and unlocked. When shooting with two lenses, users can easily shoot without the aid of a tripod.

High image quality performance
The use of DO lens High image quality performance of RF600mmF11ISSTM and RF800mmF11ISSTM. The DO lens used in these two lenses uses a seamless double-layer diffractive optical element developed by Canon. It also has chromatic aberration correction and aspheric lens characteristics. It can achieve high resolution and high contrast from the center of the image to the edge, and almost There is no color halo. Although the RF600mmF11ISSTM is an affordable super-telephoto lens, it has achieved a high-quality performance equivalent to the EF100-400mmf/4.5-5.6LISIIUSM+ extender EF1.4*III.
High-speed precise focusing and stable shooting
RF600mmF11ISSTM and RF800mmF11ISSTM optimize the high-performance CPU to control the drive and auto-focus algorithm with the camera Match. At f/11 aperture value, the camera’s auto focus area is about 40%*60%, which is similar to the focus range in the EOS6DMarkII optical viewfinder. When shooting still images, high-speed and high-precision focusing can be achieved, and fast-moving subjects can be captured; when shooting video clips, a quiet and smooth tracking focus effect can be obtained. Taking into account the high requirements for image stabilization during super telephoto shooting, both RF600mmF11ISSTM and RF800mmF11ISSTM are equipped with powerful IS image stabilizers. RF600mmF11ISSTM can achieve 5-level anti-shake effect3, while RF800mmF11ISSTM has 4-level anti-shake effect3, which can significantly suppress camera shake that is particularly noticeable in super-telephoto shooting and obtain a stable picture.

New design and light operability
Different from existing EF and RF lenses, RF600mmF11ISSTM and RF800mmF11ISSTM adopts a new design style. The traditional external logo design of the mirror body is subtracted to highlight the more practical and simple characteristics. The front of the two lenses is treated with a leather texture finish, which is comfortable to the touch and has the effect of inhibiting slippage, fingerprint smudges and scratches. The wide focus ring used for fine focusing is distinguished from the control ring decorated with silver diamond pattern, which is convenient for users to operate. The screw head of the lens function switch part is exposed, reflecting the tool-based rough style, which complements the overall design language of the lens.
In order to ensure brisk operability and a stable grip, both lenses are equipped with a lens control ring that can quickly adjust exposure compensation, ISO sensitivity, shutter speed and other shooting parameters to avoid missing a slight vertical A fleeting moment. When shooting, the four leather-textured grooves on the front of the lens barrel help the user to hold it firmly, further enhancing the stability of shooting.
