Super UD Lens

The single Super UD Lens within the RF600mm f/4L IS USM ensures the lens produces images with minimal colour fringing from edge to edge of frame. 

Fluorite Lens

RF600mm f/4L IS USM is designed with two Fluorite Lenses inside, which are capable of significantly reducing chromatic abberation.

Optimal Lens Design

The precise arrangement of  elements and lenses within RF600mm f/4L IS USM  provides top-notch image quality while maintaining a compact and lightweight form.
