JUST ANNOUNCED: Four new RF lenses for the New EOS R full-frame Mirrorless Camera

 

Canon, world leader in imaging solutions, has today redefined the frontiers of photography and filmmaking with the launch of the pioneering EOS R System. Over thirty years on from the original, era-defining EOS launch, the bold, new EOS R System will once again expand photographic possibilities in countless ways. The new RF lens mount has been engineered with the perfect blend of optical, mechanical and electronic design to capture unique moments in previously impossible ways.

RF 35mm f/1.8 MACRO IS STM

A versatile high-quality lens that’s ideal for street, travel and close-up photography.

Canon EOS RF 35mm

Enjoy superb image quality and a natural wide-angle perspective

The RF 35mm f/1.8 MACRO IS STM provides a view that’s slightly wider than that of the human eye, but retains a natural perspective that is perfect for street, travel and environmental portrait photography, as well as filmmaking. Image quality is superb – an advanced optical formula delivers superb sharpness while Super Spectra Coating protects against flare when shooting into the sunlight.

Shoot handheld in low-light conditions

A great lens for shooting handheld in low light: the RF 35mm f/1.8 MACRO IS STM features a five-stop Image Stabilizer that includes Hybrid IS and Combination IS information protecting against blur from camera shake when shooting stills, plus a fast f/1.8 maximum aperture that allows faster shutter speeds to be used. When shooting at close distances, a Hybrid IS system compensates for the type of unwanted camera shake typically encountered when shooting macro subjects. The lens also allows Combination IS, which works with EOS R bodies for 5-axis stabilisation to deliver super-steady video footage, even while walking with the camera.

Capture intricate details with macro close-focusing

Get up close and personal using the lens’s macro capabilities to capture intricate patterns and fine detail. This highly versatile lens features a minimum focusing distance of just 17cm, which allows tiny objects to be reproduced at half life-size magnifications, and with incredible clarity.

Design features that help you shoot more instinctively and with more creativity

The RF 35mm f/1.8 MACRO IS STM has been designed to feel instinctive, so you’ll always be ready to capture fleeting moments when you’re shooting on the streets or traveling the world. Adjust exposure settings such as shutter speed, aperture and ISO using a customisable Lens Control Ring. Quiet STM focusing is responsive when shooting stills and smooth for video. Lens Information Display compatibility lets information such as focus distance be shown in the viewfinder or screen of EOS R cameras.

RF 50mm f/1.2 L USM

An extremely fast 50mm f/1.2 L-series prime lens for the Canon EOS R System. Canon EOS RF 50mm

Setting new standards of optical quality and speed, the 50mm f/1.2 prime lens is the EOS R System’s fastest lens offering supreme sharpness plus remarkable low-light performance.

Super bright standard lens

The RF 50mm f/1.2 L USM lens is Canon’s premium 50mm ‘standard’ lens in the RF lens range, enjoying a special place in the EOS lens line-up thanks to an incredibly fast f/1.2 maximum aperture. Thanks to Dual Pixel CMOS AF, new levels of focus accuracy at f/1.2 are possible with Canon EOS R Series cameras and RF 50mm f/1.2 L USM. The RF mount, which has been built to allow an optimum distance between sensor and lens, brings new creative and low light performance capabilities to both photographers and filmmakers.

Fast and precise optical performance

As a member of the legendary L-series range of lenses the RF 50mm f/1.2 L USM is nothing short of state-of-the-art. Setting new benchmarks in optical performance thanks to its ultra-wide aperture and superb light gathering capability, it redefines what is possible to capture. A ring-type ultrasonic (USM) motor delivers fast and precise focusing at blistering speeds thanks to the new lens design, offering the ultimate in prime lens quality and performance.

Legendary L-series image quality

Because it’s an L-series lens, you’d expect the RF 50mm f/1.2 L USM to be made to exacting Canon standards. Housed within its premium L-series body is the latest in optical engineering, consisting of one UD lens element, two ground Aspherical elements and a single moulded Aspherical element to eliminate any optical issues such as chromatic aberration.

Built for everyday professional use

When you’re working under pressure, the last thing you want is any break in concentration. Looking away from the subject to adjust camera settings risks losing the shot altogether and Canon engineers have recognised this by incorporating the Lens Control Ring on all RF lenses. This allows for intuitive adjustments of camera settings such as Tv, Av and ISO while maintaining full concentration on the task at hand. Additionally, full manual control over the lens is offered by a precise focusing ring to allow close focus adjustments up to an impressive 40cm.

RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM

Setting new standards – a fast, versatile, ultra high-quality zoom for the Canon EOS R System.

Canon EOS RF 28-70mm

Redefining what can be expected of a standard zoom lens, the RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM features a fast f/2 aperture and delivers new levels of image quality.

Redefine what you expect from a standard zoom lens

The performance of the RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM is nothing short of extraordinary, thanks to the Canon RF mount, which allows previously impossible optical designs to now be realised. The lens uses four aspherical elements, a pair of Ultra low Dispersion (UD) elements and a Super UD element to deliver the optical quality normally expected of a prime lens. It’s versatile too, with a zoom range that will find uses in just about every area of photography.

Super-fast f/2 maximum aperture for extra creative power

An f/2 maximum aperture gives photographers huge control over depth of field – perfect for portrait and wedding photographers looking to isolate a pin-sharp subject against a smooth out-of-focus background. Such a large aperture also allows for faster shutter speeds when shooting in low-light, which can freeze both subject movement and camera shake.

Smooth, near-silent autofocusing, with Canon’s USM technology

The RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM borrows the ring-type USM technology from Canon’s super-telephoto lenses in order to move its large glass elements quickly and in near silence. In combination with the fast data transfer allowed by the RF mount, this technology lets photographers focus fast. And tracking moving subjects with ease.

Smart controls and intuitive ergonomics for a natural shooting experience

A customisable Control Ring on the lens’s barrel lets photographers adjust settings quickly and easily without taking their eye away from the camera. This tactile, intuitive device can be programmed to perform various functions such as aperture, shutter speed and ISO adjustment, and exposure compensation.

Legendary Canon L-Series pedigree inspires confidence

As an L-Series lens, the RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM is built to exacting standards and designed to withstand the rigors of professional use. Plus, it’s sealed against dust and moisture, so bad weather and harsh conditions won’t interrupt your creativity.

RF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM

A Canon RF Series 24-105mm L-series zoom with a fixed f/4 aperture for serious photographers and filmmakers.
