Incorporating such special optical materials as fluorite and UD (ultra low-dispersion) glass, the new Canon single-focal-length lense effectively correct the chromatic aberrations that can occur in telephoto lenses while realizing high-resolution, high-contrast shooting performance.

The super-telephoto EF800mm f/5.6L IS USM effectively meets the demands of users working in such fields as sports, news, and nature photography.

Canon L-series lenses are equipped with four AF stop buttons positioned around the front of the lens, enabling photographers to temporarily turn off autofocus to prevent other elements from interfering with focusing, and a circular aperture diaphragm that achieves natural background-blur performance.
