Canon (www.Canon-CNA.com) today announces the launch of two new affordable full-frame RF lenses, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM and the RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM. The RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM is a bright, lightweight f/1.8 prime lens with a 24mm focal length, and the RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM is an ultra-wide zoom lens that covers a range of focal lengths from 15-30mm. Continuing the expansion of the RF lens series, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM and RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM feature the same advanced optical technology and superior handling for sharp images and high quality, even when shooting on the go. Versatile lenses, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM and RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM suit a variety of photography and vlogging genres, allowing users to unleash their creativity and instinctively capturing every 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 prime lens made possible by the clever design of Canon’s RF mount. A fast, bright image-stabilized lens, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM excels in low-light scenarios with an f/1.8 maximum aperture and circular 9-blade design. This also creates a beautiful soft background, which makes the subject stand out sharply in the image. When used with an APS-C sensor camera, this lens also provides an effective focal length similar to 35mm.
Weighing just 270g and featuring a gear-type STM motor that enables fast and quiet focusing in a small form factor, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM is perfect for travel and landscape photographers who want to shoot on the progress. With a closest 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 capturing the wider environment around them. surrounds.
The RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM offers excellent optical performance and improved operation. Equipped with a customizable lens control ring, photographers can easily adjust ISO, aperture, and switch between AF methods. With a dedicated focus ring, this model also provides greater control during manual focus. When used with compatible cameras, lens information is displayed to offer 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 employs Super Spectrum Coating to prevent ghosting and flare, for high-quality images every time. Delivering super smooth and stable stills and video, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM employs a 5-stop optical Image Stabilizer that increases to 6.5 stops of IS when used in conjunction with a camera body. EOS R series with in-body image stabilizer.
Expand your view with the RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM ultra wide angle
Providing 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 range that’s perfect for capturing travel, landscapes, or vlogging. This ultra-wide-angle lens means photographers and vloggers can get more out of 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 has a 5.5-stop Optical Image Stabilizer that enables longer shutter speeds for smooth handheld shooting and video. When used with an EOS R System body with In-Body Image Stabilizer, users can get up to an incredible 7 stops for steady, shake-free stills and video. Perfect for shooting on the go, the RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM weighs just 390g and offers a compact and robust design. Featuring a lead screw-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 motor is also ideal for capturing video, 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 discover the world up close and in incredible detail, thanks to this lens’s 0.52x magnification . The new optical design of the RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM features precision-molded, aspherical elements and lens coatings to capture every detail. A combined focus and lens control ring allows users to manipulate settings without taking their eyes off the scene or subject.
Advanced technology for greater 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, easy-to-carry size for capture exceptionally sharp images anywhere. With its wide-angle and fast aperture, allowing photographers to capture high-quality photos and video, even in low light, the RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM is the perfect choice for those who want to explore the world around them. through the quality of a fixed focal length lens. For those who want more creative freedom, the RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM’s ultra-wide zoom range and close-focus capabilities mean users can turn their lens into everything from vast landscapes to small 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 their wide-angle focal lengths.
