RF 24-105mm f4-7.1 IS STM lens announcement

Kicking off the release of the 2020 additions to the RF lens line-up, the RF 24-105mm f4-7.1 IS STM is a lightweight, compact and versatile zoom lens. Weighing just 395g and sizing up at 88.8mm x 76.6mm, the RF 24-105mm f4-7.1 IS STM is an ideal all-round lens and travel companion. The RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM and EOS RP combined weight is only 880g, providing an equal lens/camera balance and comfort.

Adding to its already versatile focal range, the RF 24-105mm f4-7.1 IS STM features not only 0.4x life-size magnification, but also a new Canon-developed 0.5x Center Focus Macro mode. This mode provides photographers with high magnification at 24mm, resulting in an extremely close 13cm minimum focus distance. As a result, subjects in the centre of the frame are pin-sharp, exposing beautiful hidden detail, and the edges of the image fade away into an attractive blur.

With a large rear element and Canon’s Super Spectra Coating, this lens will deliver high optical performance across the frame with minimal ghosting and flare. A specification shared amongst all of Canon’s RF lenses, the RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM also sports its own DLO lens correction data profile allowing users to capture stunning images with minimal need for post-processing.

The RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM’s STM Autofocus motor also provides fast AF performance for stills and smooth, quiet performance during video capture. It's also further enhanced by 5-stop Image Stabilization (IS).

The Canon RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM lens is available from April 2020 for £459.99 / €549.99 (RSP).

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…
