The 800mm f/5.6L IS is Canon’s longest super telephoto lens. Key features include:

  • Sharp images

  • Four-stop, tripod-sensing image stabilization

  • L-series build quality

  • Canon’s longest super-telephoto in production

Sharpness and Image Stabilization. The Canon 800mm f/5.6L IS is every bit as sharp as the other Canon super telephoto lenses, and it provides a full four stops of image stabilization. This can be important in a lens this long even when it’s mounted on a tripod, due to vibration from things as minor as mirror slap.

Our lenses do not come with a tripod plate, please rent one here if you need one.

Unlike our other lenses, the super telephoto lenses will be shipped in soft cases which can be used to transport the lens during your rental period.
