Premium prime lens for EOS M-series: EF 32mmm f1.4 STM lens

Canon EF-M 32mm f1.4 STM lens: Press release

United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, 5 September 2018 – Setting yet another historic milestone in lens design and marking a step change in optical quality, Canon Europe today launches the EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM - a pioneering 32mm mirrorless lens designed exclusively for the EOS M system, and the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM and EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM – the world’s lightest professional super telephoto lenses in their class. Embracing the legacy of quality engendered by the EOS system, yet compatible via adapters with the new, cutting-edge, EOS R System – the considerably lighter EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM and EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM radically enhances ease-of-use, giving photographers the confidence to consistently deliver superior images.

The EF-M 32mm f1.4 STM is a premium EF-M lens designed to be fast, discreet and capable of delivering exceptional detail and clarity, making it perfect for elegant portraits, candid photography or natural looking compositions. Offering a 51mm equivalent focal length, the EF-M 32mm f1.4 STM provides a natural perspective and a ‘normal’ field of view, close to the perspective of the eye. This helps to bring candid images to life, with realism and detail, as they look natural and spontaneous. A wide f1.4 aperture allows high-quality images to be captured with excellent depth-of-field control or to shoot in challenging low-light conditions. Also ideal for creative portrait photography, the EF-M 32mm f1.4 STM’s 7-blade circular aperture creates an attractive bokeh effect, blurring the background, which accentuates the subject in the foreground.

Comprising an exceptional quality, glass-molded, aspheric lens, the EF-M 32mm f1.4 STM has an even greater level of image detail and edge-to-edge quality. With 14 elements in 8 groups, this lens possesses the high level of performance required to guarantee stunning images, whilst its wide, tactile, focus ring enables precision focusing that generates the precise results every serious enthusiast craves. The EF-M 32mm f1.4 STM’s Super Spectra Coating achieves startling clarity by preventing the photographic phenomena that can ruin images – such as ghosting and flare. A remarkable mix of premium craft, ergonomic design and weighing only 235g, it is easy to carry on the move for candidly capturing any moment. The EF-M 32mm f1.4 STM maintains the usual EF-M series diameter, for a svelte and comfortable feel while shooting, while the 0.25x magnification and class-leading, highly-versatile, 23cm close focusing enable the user to get in close to capture detail. The EF-M 32mm f1.4 STM autofocus has a quiet and smooth mechanism, which provides subtlety when capturing an image, or when capturing amazing footage with video.

Pricing and availability
The EF-M 32mm f1.4 STM lens will be available to purchase from October 2018 for RSP £499.99/ €579.99.

AA:Where is Canon heading with the EOS R system?

MB: That's still to be defined, but the plan is to develop the system in both directions. With the EOS RP we've gone towards an entry-level full-frame camera, which is a very large market. It was a bit of curve ball because everyone seemed to have expected a high-end model.

When you have a high-end product it's got to be bullet-proof. It's got to work. That's the faith professionals have in Canon. It’s not going to let them down. And that's what has built the CPS [Canon Professional Services] reputation. It’s the same with a pro mirrorless camera – it's got to work. It can’t be a ‘work in…
