The Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8 IS USM is a premium quality L-series lens designed for Canon’s full frame mirrorless cameras like the EOS R and RP. The ultra-wide 15-35mm focal length makes it ideal for creating images of sprawling landscapes, urban architecture as well as sports and wildlife from a dramatic perspective. Built-in image stabilisation delivers 5-stops of vibration control making the lens well suited for handheld shooting, which combines with the bright f/2.8 aperture to deliver fantastic results in low-light conditions.
Ultra-Wide Lens for the EOS-R System
Offering a dynamic 15-35mm focal length, the ultra-wide zoom RF lens provides the framing versatility required by working professionals with excellent image and low-light performance. At the wide end it is an ideal lens for landscapes and interiors and when fully extended is great for portraits that capture not only your subject but the context of their environment.
Bright f/2.8 Constant Aperture
Boasting a large f/2.8 aperture across the entire zoom range, means that the lens can capture images with a shallow depth of field, perfect for isolating your subject from the background. The wide aperture is brighter and has a 9-bladed circular design that creates a soft bokeh effect in the out-of-focus areas of your shot.
5-Stops of Image Stabilisation
Canon have built the 15-35mm with an impressive image stabilisation system that boasts 5-stops of shake reduction so you can capture sharper images when shooting handheld. Video shooters can capture smoother more cinematic footage and photographers who thrive in low light will appreciate the ability to drag the shutter speed out a little longer for brighter shots.
Nano USM Focus Drive System
Autofocus is ultra-quick, quiet and incredibly accurate thanks to the Nano Ultra-sonic Motor (USM) that drives the lens elements when autofocus is enabled. The lens also allows you to get up close and personal with your subject with a 28cm minimal focusing distance.
L-Series Optical Performance
As with all Canon L-series lenses a huge emphasis has been placed on image performance which is why the RF 15-35mm uses an sophisticated optical construction made up of 16 elements, 3 of which are 3 glass-moulded aspherical elements, carefully arranged in 12 groups. The elements are also treated with a SWC (Subwavelength Structure Coating) and an ASC (Air Sphere Coating) that controls ghosting and flaring to create ultra-sharp images with excellent contrast even when shooting in backlit conditions.
Built for Professionals
The Canon R-Series 15-35mm F2.8 IS USM L-Series Lens is designed for working photographers and video shooters with incredible optical performance and handling. Switches for image stabilisation and manual focus provide instant access to the functions of the lens and the customisable control ring can be set to control ISO to exposure comp and everything in between. The lens is also dust and water resistant thanks to a Fluorine lens coating and a rubber ring at the lens mount, ensuring it can stand up the rigours of daily use in a range of weather conditions.
