Canon RF Lenses Hands-on Photos

Canon are showcasing six new RF-mount full-frame mirrorless lenses at The Photography Show 2019 in Birmingham, UK.

Check out our extensive gallery of photos of the new Canon RF lenses and the redesigned Canon stand.

First unveiled last month, the 6 new lenses are the the RF 85mm F1.2L USM, RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS, RF 24-70mm F2.8L IS USM, RF 15-35mm F2.8L IS USM, RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM and the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM.

All six RF lenses are still early prototypes, with the RF 24-200mm being the only one that could actually be mounted on an EOS R camera. This looks like being an intriguingly compact travel-zoom lens that would make a great partner for the new EOS RP camera.

The RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM is an impressively compact lens, as shown in our hands-on shots where we compare it to the EF version, although Canon told us that the RF lens will extend when zoomed to 200mm.

There are also some side-by-side shots of the RF 24-70mm F2.8L IS USM lens with its EF equivalent.

Canon also told us that all six new RF lenses will be released this year, bringing the system total to 10 - pretty impressive for the first full year of development.
