What’s In The Box?

Sample Images


What is the Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8L lens best suited for?

With its versatile zoom range, fast constant aperture, superior optics and robust build, the RF 24-70mm F2.8L performs exceptionally well as a general-purpose lens for various types of photography including landscapes, portraits, events, weddings and more making it very versatile. It covers focal lengths from wide scenic shots to tightened head and shoulder portraits.

How does the image quality compare to Canon’s EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II?

The RF 24-70mm F2.8L maintains the same high standard of image quality that Canon’s top L-series lenses are renowned for. Sharpness, contrast, colour accuracy and distortion control are all excellent. The RF version may have a slight edge due to advancements in coatings and the advantage of shorter back focus distance.

What kind of autofocus motor does this lens use?

It utilises Canon’s latest Nano USM autofocus system, which uses a combination of advanced stepping motor and ultrasonic motor technology for fast, smooth, near-silent focusing, especially useful for video. Full-time manual override of AF is also possible.

Does this lens have image stabilisation?

Yes, Canon incorporates 5-stop optical image stabilisation which compensates for up to 5 stops of camera shake for sharper handheld shooting in low light. This is very effective, making slower shutter speeds possible without a tripod.

Can the control ring on the lens be customised?

Yes, the control ring can be set to control the aperture, shutter speed, ISO or exposure compensation for intuitive adjustment while shooting. This saves accessing in-camera menus for vital settings changes.

Does the lens have weather sealing?

Yes, the ‘L’ lens features dust and moisture-resistant sealing around switches, joins and the lens mount to protect the inner mechanisms during outdoor use in more challenging environments.

What accessories are compatible with this lens?

It has an 82mm filter thread diameter for screw-in filters like polarisers and ND grads. Compatible lens extenders for this RF lens include the Canon Extenders RF 1.4x and RF 2x.
