Canon 35mm F1.8 USM IS

Canon RF Mount Lenses 35mm

In our review, we said:

“the image quality is also very sharp for what it is. Then consider the bokeh and the fact that you can not only get this from a 35mm lens, but the f1.8 aperture lets you really blow your backgrounds out. We can’t really complain about the Canon RF 35mm f1.8 USM IS.”

The focal length of 800mm makes this a specialty lens that will appeal to wildlife photographers and birders.

The image stabilization makes handholding this super-telephoto prime easy, and the image quality is excellent when everything goes according to plan.

RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM

Canon RF Mount

In our review, we said:

“I think that the Canon RF 24-105mm f4 L IS USM is a great lens. Considering that this used to be my bread and butter lens for years when I was a DSLR owner, I’m pleasantly content with the latest version. It’s almost impossible to get a blurry shot due to camera shake. In fact, I pretty much never got one. Then there is the weather sealing, the fast focus, etc. We can’t really fault the Canon RF 24-105mm f4 L IS USM.”

RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM

Canon RF Mount

In our review, we said:

“This is a well-built lens that focuses incredibly quickly. The lens produces nice natural colors, it’s beyond sharp, there’s no fringing, and it can be used as a makeshift macro lens. It’s the perfect lens for many types of photography thanks to its versatile zoom range. Its small size and low weight mean you can carry it around on your camera without feeling like your back is going to break.”

RF 70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM

Canon RF Mount

In our review, we said:

Not only is there image stabilization and exceptional build quality, but it’s got beautiful image quality. The bokeh is nice and creamy even though there are better portrait lenses on the market. The colors you’ll get are going to be much better than most of what you see on the market. And finally, with Canon’s great autofocusing abilities, you’re going to nail a shot in the dark. The Canon RF 70-200mm f2.8 L IS USM deserves high marks all around.
