RF 28-70mm f/2L USM Canon 70

Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L USM

It’s a giant and dwarfs Canon’s smaller EOS R full-frame cameras, yet this standard zoom in RF mount is rather special in the way it offers such a fast aperture across its entire zoom range. Its colossal weight (1430g) must be carefully considered, but what it can do is save carrying and swapping multiple prime lenses of varying focal lengths that add up to weigh much more. With no optical image stabilisation it’s best paired with the EOS R6 or EOS R5 that feature IBIS and if you use filters be sure to take note of its large filter thread (95mm). Its complex optical construction results in phenomenal centre sharpness and minimal distortion. It’s a beast, but a likeable one.

The details

Set new standards in photography

The RF 28-70mm f/2L USM offers the kind of image quality you’d expect from a prime lens, and adds an f/2 maximum aperture for more creative control.

A great lens for...

Travel photography
Travel with a single zoom for space-saving flexibility. A versatile 28-70mm range is useful for many subjects, from big-sky landscapes to portraits, fine art and street photography.

Wedding photography
Work quickly and quietly in a variety of situations. The RF 28-70mm f/2L USM features an f/2 maximum aperture, letting you control shallow depth of field in portraits and capture ambience in low light.

Photojournalism
The zoom and focal length recomposes and reframes quickly to capture that decisive moment. Focus and shoot in low light, and let Canon’s L-series quality inspire confidence – even in bad weather.

Image quality that has to be seen to be believed
The RF 28-70mm f/2L USM has all the optical, mechanical and electronic advantages of the EOS R system. Achieve extraordinary image quality and expect very high sharpness with low levels of distortion.

Smooth, near silent autofocusing
Focus quickly and in near silence, thanks to an advanced ring-type USM AF motor. When combined with the EOS R system’s silent shooting technology, photographers can remain discreet.

Simply brilliant in low light
Experience faster shutter speeds and f/2 aperture that can freeze subject and camera movement. With a shallow depth of field, the RF 28-70mm f/2L USM is ideal for emphasising a pin-sharp subject.

Intuitive and seamless control
The RF 28-70mm f/2L USM features a customisable Lens Control Ring, which lets photographers respond instinctively to changing conditions by quickly adjusting a variety of settings including aperture, shutter speed, ISO and exposure compensation.
