Canon announces the development of six new RF lenses using the innovative RF lens mount, which will expand the list of lenses.
With the launch of the EOS RP camera, Canon announced that six more lenses are being developed for the revolutionary RF mount — the heart of the Canon EOS R full — frame mirrorless system.
When creating the RF mount, our goal was to achieve a combination of optical, mechanical and electronic components of the highest quality, which should provide support for innovative full-frame lenses, fast autofocus and high-speed connection between the camera and the lens.
With the launch of the EOS R system, we introduced four RF lenses, including the Canon RF 28-70mm F2L USM — the world's first standard f/2 aperture zoom lens. Three of the four lenses have also become part of the L-series due to the highest build quality and high level of dust and moisture protection.
In 2019, this line of lenses will be added:
RF 85mm F1. 2L USM: high-speed fixed lens with medium focal length telephoto lens and excellent optical quality, which is suitable for semi-professionals and portrait professionals.
RF 85mm F1. 2L USM DS: a unique lens with high optical characteristics, which provides smoothing of the frame area, which is out of focus, and has an ultra-high aperture, which will allow you to create impressive portraits.
RF 24-70 F2.8L IS USM: standard zoom lens with high optical quality for professionals and semi-professionals engaged in portrait, landscape, documentary or wedding photography.
RF 15-35mm F2.8L IS USM: high-speed wide-angle lens with high optical performance, which is ideal for shooting architecture, interiors and landscapes.
RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM: this compact and inexpensive zoom lens with 10x magnification will be a versatile solution for travelers who need a versatile focal length range, ergonomics and high quality shots.
RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM: stunning lens for professionals photographing weddings, sporting events and wildlife. This high-speed zoom lens with medium telephoto focal length range will be a worthy choice for completely different types of photography.
