Can I Attach RF100-400mm F5.6-8 lens

"Is there anyways of putting a RF100-400mm F5.6-8 Lens on a Canon EOS Rebel T100"

Hi Brook!

Thanks for asking about compatibility between one of the new Canon RF lenses intended for mirrorless Canon cameras, the RF 100-400mm telephoto zoom lens.

The quick answer is no. You cannot attach Canon RF lenses to EF-S mount cameras like the Rebel T100 (also known as the 4000D).

T100 Lens Compatibility

Canon RF lenses are designed to be compatible with mirrorless cameras that have a much closer attachment to the mirrorless camera sensors. The flange difference is different.

You might consider a Canon EF 75-300 or a Tamron or Sigma 150-600mm lens for your T100. Your T100 is an excellent DSLR camera, perfect for beginner DSLR shooters, and you should match a budget lens with it.

The Canon RF lenses cannot be adapted to fit APS-C, full-frame or ESO-M mirrorless cameras. You can adapt EF and EF-S lenses to fit on mirrorless cameras with an adapter. Essentially it's a spacer that increases the flange distance for achieving the right distance between the lens and the sensor.

Good Luck!
