Canon announces 2020 RF lens products and launches the compact, versatile, lightweight RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM Canon Inc. today launches the RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM and announces the development of the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM, Extender RF 1.4x and Extender RF 2x. Furthering its commitment to the EOS R System and RF Mount, Canon also confirms it will release five more RF lenses this year, bringing the total to nine new RF lenses in 2020.
Kicking off the release of the 2020 additions, the RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM is a lightweight, compact and versatile zoom lens, perfect for adventurous enthusiast photographers. With its wide focal range the RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM offers a unique combination of flexibility and size in its category, allowing enthusiasts to capture a range of different shots in stunning quality – making it an ideal all-round lens and travel companion.
Next-Generation Imaging Full frame quality, superb 5-stop optical Image Stabilizer, fast, smooth AF and a combined focus and Lens Control Ring for intuitive, customised control over camera settings.
Versatile Full Frame Image Quality See the whole story; epic vistas, tiny detail, striking portraits and candid moments. Shoot at 13cm with 0.5x Centre Focus Macro, stay handheld with 5-stop optical IS.
Great for Stills and Movies Track subjects and achieve smooth, natural focus when shooting movies thanks to the quiet STM motor that makes this lens ideal for stunning photos and video.
An Ideal Everyday Lens One lens, but many possibilities. Thanks to a lightweight and compact design at just 395g, it’s a practical zoom from which to start your full frame mirrorless journey.
An Excellent Travel Partner With a focal length of 24-105mm, weighing just 395g and sizing up at 88.8mm x 76.6mm – the RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM is ideal for those that want a lens with great focal length versatility but don’t have a lot of space in their kit bag nor want a heavy load – often a requirement of travel photographers. The RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM and EOS RP combined weighs just 880g – providing an equal lens/camera balance and comfort when capturing Full Frame quality stills and video on the move.
Adding to its already versatile focal range, the RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM features not only 0.4x life-size magnification but also a new Canon-developed 0.5x Center Focus Macro mode. This mode provides photographers with high magnification at 24mm, resulting in an extremely close 13cm minimum focus distance. As a result, subjects in the centre of the frame are pin-sharp, exposing beautiful hidden detail, and the edges of the image fade away into an attractive blur – perfect for photographers looking to push creative boundaries.
High-Performing for Stills and Video The RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM boasts Canon’s optical excellence and high-speed camera-to-lens communication capabilities seen throughout its RF line-up. With a large rear element and Canon’s Super Spectra Coating, enthusiasts can enjoy high optical performance across the frame with minimal ghosting and flare. A specification shared amongst all of Canon’s RF lenses, the RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM also sports its own DLO lens correction data profile allowing users to capture stunning images with minimal need for post-processing.
The RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM’s STM Autofocus motor also provides fast AF performance for stills and smooth, quiet performance during video capture. Enhanced by 5-stop Image Stabilization (IS), photographers can be sure capturing steady stills and film whilst on the move is well within their capabilities.
With the introduction of the RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM, its announcement of the development of the RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1 L IS USM, Extender RF 1.4x and Extender RF 2x, alongside announcing it will release five more RF lenses in 2020, Canon’s strong commitment to the RF Mount is apparent. What’s more, today, Canon Inc. also announces the development of the EOS R5, a Full Frame camera set to redefine professional mirrorless – once again showing its commitment to the new, existing and future users of the EOS System to give a full range of options to users whatever their creative ambitions.
