This compact L-series lens boasts a highly versatile zoom range great for all types of photography ventures. From street and landscapes, to portraits and video, the RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM is engineered to cover a range of subjects extending from 0.21m (wide) to 0.38m (medium telephoto), with just the turn of a zoom ring.
The large diameter mount and short back focus of the RF lens significantly increases the degree of freedom in lens design compared to conventional EF lenses, achieving overwhelming high image quality and sharpness. Equipped with a Nano USM, the RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM achieves high-speed and high-precision autofocus which minimises out-of-focus blurring when shooting fast moving subjects like animals or vehicles.
Shoot with confidence even when light levels drop. The RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM is designed to work in conjunction with an EOS R series camera, with both the camera and the lens sharing data to reduce camera-shake blur. With up to 5 stops of Image Stabilization, it delivers impressively clear results when shooting handheld.
Enjoy rapid, accurate focusing thanks to a Nano USM motor that ensures smooth and quiet autofocus, so focusing appears seamless. Have clean transitions when moving between subjects or when focusing from the foreground to background, creating professional looking footage. The RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM can be customised to suit your videography needs by assigning your favourite functions such as shutter speed, ISO or exposure compensation to the control ring.
Make your subject stand out with soft blurred backgrounds with a bright and large 9-blade circular aperture at a wide f/2.8. Create artistic and impactful images particularly great for portraits or food photography even in dimly lit scenes.
The RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM has been carefully crafted with weather-sealing and fluorine coatings on the front and rear elements to guard against waterdrops and dust, helping keep this powerful lens safeguarded wherever you go.
