The Canon RF 135mm f/1.8L IS USM is now in stock at the Canon USA store. This has been a hard lens to purchase on North American shores, with stock levels being zero at the large retailers.

Canon RF 135mm f/1.8L IS USM Features

  • Powerful and bright L-Series medium telephoto lens featuring 17 optical elements in 12 groups.
  • Excellent image quality with three UD Lenses perfectly placed to reduce chromatic aberration, and Air Sphere Coating (ASC) to prevent ghosting.

  1. Seemed to go out of stock as I was ordering. Annoying.
    Yeah, it is.

    A tip – go to and set an alert. When you get it, act immediately.

    A few weeks ago, I got a cpw alert on the Canon 10x42 L binoculars. The price at Canon USA was $1120 new (regular $1500, refurbished is regular $1200) because of a concurrent $100 discount and 20% off. I ordered a few minutes later, and an hour or so later I checked back and they were out of stock. But my order arrived as promised the following week.
