Anyone hoping to get an ultra-wide angle shot or looking for a very handy zoom range now has more options with three new lenses announced today by Canon.
First up, the RF-S10-18mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM lens offers users of APS-C sensor size EOS R-series cameras an ultra wide-angle zoom, helping create strong still images and video. Key features include 10–18mm ultra-wide zoom (equivalent to 16-29mm on a full-frame camera); Image Stabilization for even greater hand-held sharpness and video steadiness; Compact and lightweight design, making it an excellent choice for travel; A new optical design, optimized for RF lens mount and APS-C sensor size.
Anyone looking for a single lens that can handle most tasks with low-light capabilities will find a decent candidate in the RF24-105mm F2.8 L IS USM Z. This is the world’s first 24-105mm focal length lens combined with consistent f/2.8 maximum aperture, offering accurate portrait-length telephoto coverage resulting in sharp images.
Features include a constant overall length when zooming, a manual aperture ring for video use, optimized optics for high-level video, and image stabilization. This is a lens that has a lot of people talking.
A new Power Zoom Adapter will also be available for it in Spring 2024. This detachable device will allow for more natural movement when zooming in and out and easier control for solo camera operators. A standard version of the Power Zoom Adapter will be available, as well as a 20-pin port version to support zoom and focus demands. Oh, and the firmware updates that will be available in early December for the EOS C70 and EOS R5 C cameras will add support for the RF24-105mm F2.8 L IS USM Z lens.
Last but not least, nature, wildlife, and outdoor sports shooters will find the lightweight RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM super telephoto zoom lens a great tool to take crystal-clear images of action at a distance. Unique features of the RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM lens also include up to 800mm focal length; up to 5.5 stops image stabilization; compatibility with optional Canon RF 1.4x and 2x tele extenders; a weather-resistant design; and a rotating tripod mount.
The RF-S10-18mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM, the RF24-105mm F2.8 L IS USM Z, and the RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM lenses are expected to be available in December for estimated retail prices of $329, $2999, and $1899, respectively. The two versions of the Power Zoom Adapter for the RF24-105mm F2.8 L IS USM Z will be available in Spring 2024 for an estimated retail price of $999 and $1299 for the version with the 20-pin port.
