Canon RF 24-105mm F2.8 L IS USM Z Lens Overview

As the world’s first 24-105mm f/2.8 constant aperture zoom lens, the Canon RF 24-105mm F2.8 L IS USM Z takes flexibility and performance to new heights. This revolutionary lens maintains a fast f/2.8 aperture throughout its versatile wide-angle to short telephoto focal range – eliminating the need to choose between speed and coverage.

With sophisticated optics including aspherical and UD elements, it delivers outstanding edge-to-edge image quality with high sharpness and clarity. The constant f/2.8 aperture affords incredible depth of field control, stellar low-light performance, and the ability to isolate subjects with gorgeous background blur.

Built specifically for mirrorless with both stills and video in mind, the lens offers cinema-style amenities like a manual aperture ring with iris lock and compatibility with Canon’s Power Zoom Adapter Canon PZ-E2 & Canon PZ-E2B. It focuses quickly and smoothly thanks to Dual Nano USM motors, with minimal focus breathing for maintaining the angle of view when focusing in video.

With 5.5 stops of effective optical image stabilisation (or 8 stops coordinated with IBIS), it’s remarkably steady during handheld shooting. Coupled with a rugged, dust and moisture-resistant design ideal for travel and outdoor shoots, the RF 24-105mm F2.8 truly sets a new bar in versatility. It’s the ultimate single-lens solution for photo and video needs alike.

Canon RF 24-105mm F2.8 L IS USM Z Lens Features In Detail

Constant f/2.8 Aperture Throughout Zoom Range

The RF 24-105mm F2.8 L IS USM Z maintains a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture throughout its entire zoom range. This provides a consistent depth of field control, stellar low light performance, and the ability to create gorgeous background blur from 24-105mm. You never have to sacrifice speed for range with this lens.

Powerful 5.5-Stop Optical Image Stabilisation

Built-in optical image stabilisation effectively compensates for up to 5.5 stops of camera shake when shooting handheld video or stills. This allows sharp images even with slower shutter speeds or long focal lengths. When paired with an IBIS camera body, stabilisation is boosted to 8 full stops for incredibly steady footage.

Smooth Focusing and Zooming for Video

Dual Nano USM focus motors provide fast, smooth, and virtually silent autofocus equally suitable for stills or video shooting. Focus breathing is minimised to maintain a consistent angle of view when rack focusing. Electronic parfocal performance keeps subjects in crisp focus when zooming during filming.

Intuitive Iris Ring Control

The lens features a manual iris ring with clickless aperture adjustments in 1/3 stop increments, allowing buttery smooth and silent adjustment of exposure when recording video. The iris lock switch enables locking aperture at auto or switching conveniently between auto and manual control.

Rugged Design for Professional Use

With a dust and moisture-resistant construction, customisable control ring, removable tripod foot collar, and a fluorine coating on the front element to resist smudges – this lens is built to withstand professional use in all types of environments.

Seamless Operation in Any Orientation

The removable tripod collar conveniently rotates for switching between landscape and portrait orientation shooting without straining gear or loosening locks. It ensures optimal balance and comfort in any shooting position.

Power Zoom Compatibility

Interface contacts allow attaching Canon’s Power Zoom Adapter accessory to enable motorised, remote controllable zoom with smooth starts and stops – ideal for single operator run and gun-style video production.

Sophisticated Optical Design for Sharp Clarity

The intricate optical formula includes 4 UD elements to nearly eliminate chromatic aberrations and colour fringing, along with 3 aspherical elements that greatly reduce spherical aberrations and distortion. Working in tandem, these advanced lens elements provide impressive sharpness and accurate rendering across the entire zoom range – even when shooting wide open at f/2.8.

Get Close with 0.29x Magnification

Despite being a standard zoom, the 24-105mm F2.8 delivers remarkably close focusing ability. The minimum focus distance is 17.7 inches at all focal lengths, allowing you to hone in tight on nearby details. This also enables an impressive 0.29x maximum magnification at the 105mm telephoto end. So you can capture vivid close-ups of smaller subjects like flowers, food, products and more.

What We Think Of The Canon RF 24-105mm F2.8 L IS USM Z Lens

The Canon RF 24-105mm F2.8 L IS USM Z Lens delivers an unrivalled combination of versatility, speed and refined optics packed into a rugged dust and moisture-resistant body.

By maintaining a professional bright f/2.8 aperture throughout its useful wide-angle to portrait-length zoom range – this lens truly raises the bar in optical performance geared for Canon EOS R mirrorless cameras. It brings class-leading sharpness, swift focusing and effective stabilisation in a more compact form factor than a traditional DSLR 24-105mm f/4 & even the RF 24-105mm F4L IS USM Lens.

While the price tag may seem high at first, hybrid shooters requiring no compromises in either still or video quality will find excellent value in this lens. It outperforms smaller and cheaper f/4 zooms while providing cine-like amenities that even pros and advanced hobbyists demand in the age of 4K video and high-res photography.

We think this is the new gold standard for shooters needing to seamlessly transition between photo and video with a single tried and true optic. It’s built to handle anything a wedding, event, portrait or travel photographer could ask – with the ruggedness and refinement required for paid professional work across every creative genre and field.
