Some items like your keys or wallet you just take everywhere you go because you just never know. For anyone with an EOS R series camera, add the Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens to that list. As part of the EOS R System, it’s nice and compact thanks to its RF mount so you can shoot – and get a great shot – anywhere and anytime. Size isn’t all though. As a fixed focal length lens, it lets you be creative with composition and can be used for a wide range of scenes from snapshots to portraits, landscapes to low-light situations and more. Those images will stand out, too, just like you intend whether on social media, or when sharing or printing, thanks to impressive optical features like a PMo aspherical lens to suppress aberrations, Super Spectra coating to reduce flaring and ghosting, and a large f/1.8 aperture for low-light shooting and beautiful bokeh. Pick it up and use it one time and you’ll see for yourself, and you won’t be able to leave the house without it.

Compact, Lightweight Fixed 50mm Focal Length Lens

Being bulky or inconvenient to carry is never a concern with the RF50mm F1.8 STM lens. Its compact size makes it appealing to bring on any trip or excursion and is quite handy to have around, too, with its 50mm fixed focal length letting you be creative with composition and because the 50mm focal length is similar to what the actual human eye sees, it provides a great representation to capture impressive portraits, landscapes, food photos and more.

Large F/1.8 Aperture for Low-Light Photography and Creative Background Blur

The f/1.8 aperture provides you with a number of benefits and options for your photography, including being able to shoot with faster shutter speeds in low light, helping to decrease the effects of camera shake for a more steady shot, reducing the amount of noise in your image, and the ability to beautifully blur the background or foreground depending on your creative taste.

A Stepping Motor (Gear-Type STM) Provides Smooth and Quiet Continuous AF During Video

Recording, As Well As When Shooting Photos The RF50mm F1.8 STM lens uses a gear-type stepping motor to provide smooth and quiet autofocus when shooting both still and video, so focusing appears seamless while following a subject with Servo AF, or Movie Servo AF. Focus racks will have clean transitions when repositioning to another subject, or when focusing from foreground to background.

Control Ring for Direct Setting Changes

Standard on all RF lenses, the control ring on the lens barrel enables you to adjust numerous settings including shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation and more. Located towards the front of the lens and effectively adding a third dial to the EOS R and EOS RP, and a fourth dial for EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras, the control ring has a tactile, easily distinguished surface so you can grasp and make any setting changes quickly. This ring can also be easily switched to function as a focus ring with the focus/control switch located on the side of the lens, so you can adjust the focus to your desired preference.

Optimized Lens Placement and Coatings Help Deliver Outstanding Color Balance, While Minimizing Ghosting and Flare
Since you’ll be carrying this lens with you quite often you’ll want something that provides great results. The large diameter and short back focus inherent in all RF lenses helps with image quality while a carefully placed single PMo aspherical lens helps to reduce aberrations at the periphery of the image, with lens coatings further assisting by helping to reduce flaring and ghosting, so your images are clear, vivid and inspiring.

Circular 7-Blade Aperture Helps Deliver Beautiful, Soft Backgrounds

You’ll have no problem getting that creative, fun and pleasant out-of-focus background blur we all love with the circular 7-blade aperture, so your subject stands out and the background provides a beautiful backdrop that’s visually appealing in itself.

Minimum Focusing Distance of 0.98 Ft. and Maximum Magnification of 0.25x

Capture amazing shots wherever you are and whatever your subject, even at a close distance of 0.98 ft. at a maximum magnification of 0.25x, making this not just an ideal lens for everyday casual shooting but for more intricate shots like food, flowers and smaller subjects you really want to show off.

12-pin Communication System

Designed to quickly process data, the 12-pin communication system inherent in all RF lenses helps accelerates autofocusing and more, helping to simplify complex operations and provide a quick and reliable user experience

Up To 7 Stops Of Shake Correction with EOS R Series Cameras with In-Body Image Stabilizer

When combined with an EOS R Series camera with In-Body Image Stabilizer, you can experience the benefits of high-precision 5-axis image stabilization even without Optical Image Stabilization so you can capture amazingly clear and steady results while shooting handheld photos or videos, even in low-light situations like indoors or night scenes, without having to significantly increase the ISO or grab a tripod.

 


Canon RF 70-200mm f/4 L IS USM lens:

  • price: $1,599
  • 16 elements in 11 groups (including 4 UD lenses)
  • minimum focusing distance: 0.6m
  • maximum magnifications: 0.28x
  • number of aperture blades: 9
  • filter size: 77mm
  • camera shake correction: max. 5 steps (R/RP), max 7.5 steps (R5/R6)
  • size φ83.5 x 119mm
  • weight 695g

The Canon RF 70-200mm f/4.0L IS USM Lens is a telephoto zoom lens delivering impressive image quality along with superb mobility as our shortest and lightest 70-200mm f/4 lens to date. Designed for the EOS R System, this lens takes advantage of the large diameter mount and short back focus distance of the RF mount to maintain high image quality while being more compact and portable so you’ll be even more inclined to take it with you on your travels. Results are stunning thanks to 4 UD lenses which help correct chromatic aberration and keep colors vivid, reduced ghosting provided by Air-Sphere Coating (ASC), and Optical Image Stabilization plus coordinated Optical Image Stabilizer and In-Body Image Stabilizer for amazingly clear, crisp images at slow shutter speeds and smooth video footage. There’s also dual Nano USMs contributing to a short minimum focusing distance and high-speed autofocus for still shooting and near-silent, smooth autofocus during movie shooting. These features and more, combined with the confidence to shoot in almost any condition with dust- and weather resistant seals and fluorine coating, make the RF70-200mm F4 L IS USM lens a solid performer for any situation.

Canon’s Shortest and Lightest 70-200mm f/4 Interchangeable Zoom Lens

Convenience is a major consideration when shooting, and the RF70-200mm F4 L IS USM lens is our most compact and lightest 70-200mm f/4 lens, making it even more appealing to use for your photo and video opportunities. As a more portable 70-200 option than our EF version, this new RF lens is easier to fit into a messenger bag as well as a camera backpack vertically so it’s always on-hand and ready to go.

High Image Quality and Bright, Constant f/4 Aperture Telephoto Zoom RF L Lens

The EF 70-200mm F4 lenses provided impressive picture quality and that superb reputation has carried over and has been improved with this RF version. With L series optics and a 9 blade circular aperture for creative bokeh, this is an excellent telephoto complement to the RF24-105mm F4L IS USM and will provide you with impressive results, even when shooting in low light situations.

Optical Image Stabilizer with up to 5 Stops of Shake Correction

Because RF lenses are designed specifically for the RF Mount found on EOS R-series cameras, the lens and camera combine to share shooting data, helping to dramatically reduce the effect of camera shake that can occur when using handheld. This applies when capturing both stills and video with up to 5 stops of stabilization for accurate and clear content.

Up to 7.5 stops of Shake Correction

with Coordinated Optical Image Stabilizer and In-Body Image Stabilizer When combined with an EOS R series camera equipped with In-Body Image Stabilizer, the lens’ Optical Image Stabilizer teams up with the In-Body Image Stabilizer to provide coordinated IS up to 7.5 stops, further helping to alleviate shaking for photos and video, and adjusting the ratio from optical to in-body stabilization automatically throughout the zoom range so you have the best of both worlds.

High Speed, Smooth and Quiet Auto Focus with Dual Nano USM

Like some of its predecessors such as the RF70-200mm F2.8L IS USM and RF100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM lenses, the RF70-200mm F4 L IS USM is equipped with dual independent Nano USMs to help achieve high-speed and focus accuracy at any focal length or throughout its travel, and its focusing range. This helps you quickly focus and keep up with fast-moving subjects and also provides smooth and silent autofocus while shooting movies, so there is relatively no disturbance for you, the subject or in what you see visually and hear audibly during shooting and playback.

Minimum Focusing Distance of 1.97 ft. and Maximum Magnification of 0.28x

While the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM counterpart lets you shoot at a minimum focusing distance of approx. 3.3 ft., the dual independent Nano USMs found in the RF70-200mm F4 L IS USM lets you get even closer, up to 1.97 ft. from the subject at full zoom range and at a maximum magnification of 0.28x (at 200mm), so you can get highly detailed, highly impressive images even at close range with a telephoto zoom lens.

Control Ring for Direct Setting Changes

Standard on all RF lenses, the control ring on the lens barrel enables you to adjust numerous settings including shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation and more. Located towards the front of the lens and effectively adding a third dial to the EOS R and EOS RP, and a fourth dial for EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras, the control ring has a tactile, easily distinguished surface and features a clicking mechanism that provides tangible feedback for confident use while looking through the viewfinder. For photographers and moviemakers who would prefer a silent control ring, the clicking mechanism can be removed by a Canon service provider for a fee.

12-Pin Communication System

Designed to quickly process data, the 12-pin communication system inherent in all RF lenses helps accelerates AF, Image Stabilization, the Digital Lens Optimizer and more, helping to simplify complex operations and provide a quick and reliable user experience.

Dust- and Weather-resistant

Feel confident shooting in almost any weather condition, from rain to snow, thanks to dust- and weather-resistant construction in the lens mount, switch panel, lens barrel extension and all rings. Sealing is applied to lens joining sections, and switch panels to help prevent water and dust from entering into the lens.

Four UD Elements and Air-Sphere Coating (ASC)

Clear, high-quality images are produced with the help of four low refractive and ultra-low dispersion lenses, providing significant chromatic aberration correction through the entire zoom range. In addition, the RF70-200mm F4 L IS USM lens features our Air Sphere Coating (ASC), which helps to reduce the occurrence of lens flare and ghosting. This helps provide clean results with minimal distractions and aberrations.
