Versatile lenses, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM and RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM are suitable for a variety of photography and vlogging genres, allowing users to unleash their creativity and capture instinctively. each shot.

Introducing the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM; Sharp, light, wide

The RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM is a compact and versatile 24mm wide-angle lens, made possible by Canon’s clever RF mount design. A fast, bright, and stabilized lens, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM excels in low-light scenarios with a maximum aperture of af/1.8 and a circular 9-blade design. It also creates a beautifully soft background, which makes the subject really stand out in the picture. When used with an APS-C sensor camera, this lens also offers an effective focal length similar to 35mm.

Weighing just 270g and featuring a gear-driven STM motor that delivers fast, quiet focusing in a compact size, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM is perfect for travel and landscape photographers who want to take photos on the go. With a minimum focusing distance of 14cm (0.5x magnification), this lens offers enormous creative potential, allowing photographers and vloggers to focus extremely close to their subject, while still being able to capture the environment. wider around it.

The RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM offers superb optical performance and improved operation. Equipped with a customizable Lens Control Ring, photographers can easily fine-tune ISO, aperture, and switch between AF methods. With a dedicated focus ring, this model also offers better control when focusing manually. When used with compatible cameras, lens information is displayed to provide even greater focus assistance with the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM. With 11 elements in 9 groups, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM uses Super Spectra Coating to prevent ghosting and flare, for high quality images every time. Delivering super smooth and steady stills and video, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM utilizes a 5-stop Optical Image Stabilizer that increases to 6.5 stops of IS when used with a body of the EOS R series with built-in image stabilization.

Expand your field of view with the ultra-wide RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM

Offering the flexibility of a range of popular focal lengths, the RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM features an incredible 15-30mm focal length range, perfect for capturing travel, landscapes or vlogging. This ultra-wide-angle lens lets photographers and vloggers learn more about every shot, to capture the full context and scale of subjects like buildings and stunning natural landscapes. The RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM features a 5.5-stop Optical Image Stabilizer that enables longer shutter speeds for handheld shooting and smooth video. When used with an EOS R System body that has the built-in Image Stabilizer, users can get up to an incredible 7 stops for steady, shake-free photos and videos. Perfect for shooting on the go, the RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM weighs just 390g and offers a compact and rugged design. Featuring a leadscrew-type STM focus motor, the RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM can quickly focus on fast-moving subjects. This exceptionally quiet STM engine is also well suited for video capture, giving vloggers and content creators the tools to shoot like a pro.

A versatile lens, the RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM also has fantastic macro capabilities. Photographers can experiment with manual focus to experience the world up close and in incredible detail, thanks to this lens’ 0.52x magnification [1]. The new optical design of the RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM features precision-cast aspherical elements and lens coatings, to capture every detail. A combined focus and lens control ring allows users to manipulate settings without ever taking their eyes off the scene or subject.

Advanced technology for more creative freedom

Building on the sophisticated design of the RF series, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM and RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM feature advanced lens technology in a lightweight package and easily transportable, to capture exceptionally sharp images anywhere. With its wide angle and fast aperture, which allow photographers to take high quality photos and videos even in low light, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM is the perfect choice for those who want to explore the world that surrounds them thanks to the quality of a prime lens. For those who want more creative freedom, the ultra-wide zoom range and close focusing capabilities of the RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM allow users to turn their lens to everything from vast landscapes to the smallest details.

Compatible with the EOS R, EOS RP and EOS R6, these lenses will also be a great addition to Canon’s new APS-C models, the EOS R7 and EOS R10, thanks to the wide-angle focal lengths.
