Canon is steadily fulfilling its 2020 lens roadmap, with the announcement of two new RF lenses for the EOS R full frame mirrorless system – the RF 50mm f1.8 STM lens and the RF 70-200mm f4L IS USM lens.
RF 50mm f1.8 STM key features:
• STM Motor
• Wide f1.8 aperture
• Aspheric lens element
• Super Spectra Coating
• Focus / lens control ring
The RF 70-200mm f4L IS USM lens is the second telephoto lens with this focal length in the RF range, mirroring the line-up in the EF range. Lightweight and compact, the RF 70-200mm f4L IS USM is just 695 grams and measures 11.9cm long when retracted. Even at its fully extended length, the RF 70-200mm f4L IS USM is exceptionally portable for a f4 telephoto zoom lens. This lens features additional improvements, such as Air Sphere Coating, four Ultra Low Dispersion (UD) lenses, and a reduced focusing distance from 1m to 0.6m over the EF 70-200mm f4L IS USM lens. Even at full zoom range, with its 9-blade iris and constant f4 aperture giving superb bokeh, the RF 70-200mm f4L IS USM promises to be a versatile and travel-friendly companion for all sorts of shooting environments.
RF 70-200mm f4L IS USM Key Features:
• f4 constant maximum aperture
• Dual Nano USM focusing motor
• L-series quality
• UD elements and ASC coatings
• 5-stop Optical Image Stabilizer and 7.5-stop combination IS when used with the EOS R5 and EOS R6
• Dust- and water-resistant seals
• Lens Control Ring
