Canon RF 600mm f/4L IS USM Overview

Optimized for sports, wildlife, and nature shooting, the RF 600mm f/4L IS USM Lens from Canon offers professional and advanced photographers the excellent image quality of a Canon L-series lens. Designed exclusively for EOS R-series cameras, this super telephoto lens is distinguished by its advanced, lightweight design, quick and intuitive handling, and high-speed performance. Optically identical to the EF 600mm f/4 IS III USM lens, the lens features three modes of optical image stabilization with up to 5.5 stops of shake correction to deliver extremely sharp results whether hand-held or mounted on a monopod.

A circular nine-blade aperture provides beautiful bokeh at smaller lens apertures, and Super Spectra and Air Sphere Coatings minimize ghosting and flare for exceptionally clear results when shooting in backlit situations. Additionally, Super UD and fluorite elements used in the optical design reduce color fringing and chromatic aberrations for high clarity and color accuracy. The lens provides quick, quiet, and accurate autofocus performance, and two focus presets allow you to instantly return to one or two memorized focus distances. For conditions requiring manual focusing, a customizable electronic focus ring on the lens barrel lets you select from three different speed levels to adjust manual focus to your desired preference. The RF 600mm f/4L IS USM Lens is also compatible with Canon RF 1.4x and 2x extenders, and the lens incorporates a dust and water-resistant design with a fluorine coating on the front element for easy cleaning.

Do the RF extenders work with this lens?

Do the RF extenders work with this lens?
Asked by: Dan
Under the Features tab on Canon USA's website, Canon states that both the Extender RF1.4x and the Extender RF2x would be compatible for use with the Canon RF 600mm f/4L IS USM Lens, and you would obtain the equivalent of 840mm at f/5.6 focal length coverage with the Extender RF1.4x, or 1200mm at f/8 using the Extender RF2x.

Would this be good for photographing my sons baseball games? It's a little out of my budget but I might be able to squeeze it in
Asked by: NF
Get the RF 400/2.8 instead - it would be more appropriate. You can always use TCs if you are very far away.

Does this have new optics or is it basically the EF with an RF mount?
Asked by: Leah Beth
Optically the they are the same. The RF version has 2 focus presets while the EF only has 1. So besides the focus preset and the mount, they are the same lens.

will this lens focus faster than the EF 600mm mark iii plus adapter?
Asked by: paul
Both the Canon RF 600mm f/4L IS USM Lens and the Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM Lens have the same USM focus motor. Using an adapter with the EF lens will slightly slow down the focus speed.

Do you need a lens plate to attach this to an Area compatible tripod mount and if so, would a plate used on the EF 600 mm F4 lens work?
Asked by: Clifford
Yes, you'll need to attach a lens plate to the foot in order for it to mount to a tripod head. If you have a standard long lens plate for your EF 600mm f/4, it will also function well on the RF version. :)
