Canon India Launches RF100-300mm Telephoto Lens 2023

Canon has introduced a new RF-mount telephoto telescopic lens. The new RF100-300mm f/2.8L IS USM is Canon’s first 100-300mm zoom lens with a constant aperture of f/2.8. It is a lightweight option suitable for photographers of sports and wildlife. Examine the specifics listed below!

Specifications and Features of the Canon RF100-300mm f/2.8L IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens

The Canon RF100-300mm f/2.8L IS USM lens is an improvement on the Canon EF300mm f/2.8L lens, which has long been regarded as one of the finest Canon lenses for sports and action photography. The new lens has a constant aperture design that maintains a constant f/2.8 aperture, enabling photographers to use the maximum aperture even when zoomed in to 300mm.

This allows them to capture fast-moving moments with a faster shutter speed, thereby increasing their odds of capturing the desired images.

Canon claims that the lens’s velvety bokeh allows for greater creative expression when photographing portraits. Previously, you may have needed a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens paired with a 300mm f/2.8 prime lens or 100mm + 135mm + 300mm prime lenses to attain the 100-300mm range with an aperture of f/2.8. However, the RF100-300mm f/2.8L IS USM does this by itself, so you won’t need to carry as much equipment for your shots.

In addition, the Canon RF100-300mm f/2.8L IS USM is the lightest full-frame 300mm F/2.8 constant aperture zoom lens. The new lens weighs less when coupled with an EOS R3 than the EF200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x by itself.

How about that for a weight off your shoulders! The lens can also be used with RF extenders if a greater magnification is desired. Using the Extender RF2x, for instance, you can magnify up to 600mm (full-frame camera).

Due to its dual Nano USMs, the lens’s autofocus is quick and accurate. It also incorporates a new electronic floating focus control system that improves image quality, reduces weight, and enhances the optical quality of the RF mount L-series.

During video recording, the focus respiration correction feature produces high-quality, professional footage. However, there is more! The RF100-300mm f/2.8L IS USM also includes three IS modes, five customizable lens function controls, and up to six shutter stops of image stabilization built into the lens.

Pricing and Inventory

The RF100-300mm f/2.8L IS USM telephoto lens will be available in May 2023 for Rs 9,19,995.
