The Canon RF 1200mm f8 L IS USM lens is home to a premium build and optical design; what do you expect from a Canon L series lens? It is weather-sealed to allow outdoor shooting, it features a fluorine front coating to protect the front element, and it also features a unique heat-resistant paint finish. Optically, a range of the highest end elements has been included. Fluorite, UD and Super UD elements have been included to enhance sharpness and clarity, while both Air Sphere and Super Spectra Coatings have been applied; this improves contrast and colour accuracy while limiting ghosting and lens flare.
As many users of this Canon lens will be employing it to capture fast-moving subjects, they will be pleased to find an aptly fast and smooth USM motor in charge of the autofocus.
