One lens for many scenes

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.

  • Have an edge with superb image quality and speed

    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.

  • Steady shots hand-held or in low light

    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.
