Canon also announces the development of six new RF lenses for release in 2019, including the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM – practical in both size and performance. It is a versatile all-purpose lens for the advanced amateur photographer or videographer offering a range of focal lengths for capturing extraordinary shots.
The RF15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM is an L-series wide angle zoom lens with a large f/2.8 widest aperture, made possible by the large diameter mount and short back focus of the EOS R system. This wide zoom lens features an f/2.8 brightness and coverage of a highly versatile focal length of ultra-wide 15mm all the way to 35mm, and an Image Stabilizer. This addition in the RF lens line up is expected to be a lens of choice in various scenes including landscape, portraiture, weddings and general snapshots.
The RF24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM is an L-series standard zoom lens with a large f/2.8 widest aperture, made possible by the large diameter mount and short back focus of the EOS R system.
In addition to providing stunning optical performance expected of an L-lens, this high performance standard zoom lens is compact enough to carry around. The RF24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM is expected to be a highly versatile lens suited for various shooting situations and scenes including landscape, portraiture, night scenery and photo journalism.
The RF70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM is an L-series telephoto zoom lens with a significantly more compact body, made possible by the large diameter mount and short back focus of the EOS R system.
This highly mobile telephoto zoom is expected to provide a revamped shooting experience for capturing the decisive moments in sports, wedding, landscape, wildlife and aerial photography.
The RF 85mm F1.2L USM is a large aperture mid-telephoto prime lens, offering the ultimate performance for advanced and professional portrait photographers.
Featuring stunning edge-to-edge resolution even at the maximum aperture of f/1.2, this prime lens is expected to broaden possibilities in portrait shooting.
The RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS, with Defocus Smoothing, is a unique high-performance lens, offering a combination of beautifully smooth, defocused foreground and background bokeh and a super-fast aperture to produce breathtaking portraits.
DS stands for Defocus Smoothing, and this will be Canon's first lens to equip this special vapor-deposition coating technology that produces smoother, softer bokeh making it perfect for portraits.
The RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM is a great travel companion – practical in both size and performance.
Compact and lightweight, whilst covering a wide 24mm to a telephoto 240mm, we expect that this highly versatile lens will add great value to the overall EOS R system in both still and video shooting.
The EOS RP is compatible with the existing range of RF lenses.
