The Canon RF 24-240mm f4-6.3 IS USM Lens is the travel zoom that everyone with an EOS R or EOS RP has been waiting for. With a massive 10x zoom it’s the perfect one-stop-shop to cover your photo and video needs. The lens boasts an impressive 5-stops of image stabilisation, a customisable control ring as well as ultra-smooth USM auto focus and an up-close 50cm macro focusing ability.
24-240mm RF Lens for EOS R
Boasting an impressive 10x zoom range, 24mm at the wide angle and 240mm fully extended, the lens is a super versatile option for travel and everyday photography. If you are only going to buy one lens, this ultra-zoom RF lens gives you the greatest flexibility and even has a zoom lock to secure your lens from zooming in transit. The wide-angle suits landscapes and group portraits, while the telephoto zoom is perfect for sports, nature, or action photography.
f/4-6.3 Aperture Range for Creative Expression
The lens has a reasonably bright f/4 aperture at the wide end that stops down to 6.3 when fully extended. A circular 7-bladed aperture creates beautiful bokeh in the out of focus areas of your shots, combined with the full frame sensor of the R-series this creates a professional shallow depth-of-field look.
Nano USM Auto Focus System
Using Canon’s Nano Ultra-Silent Motor (USM) system, the autofocus performance of the lens is snappy, and super-accurate but most importantly operates in near complete silence. Ideal for videographers and budding cinematographers or for still photographers looking to capture candid moments quietly.
5-Stop Image Stabilisation
A 5-stop optical image stabilisation system built-into the lens ensures you can capture sharp handheld images, especially handy when shooting at the telephoto end of the lens. But it’s not just for stills, the system can also be used to capture smooth video footage without bulky gimbals or sliders.
Custom Control Ring
One of the trademarks of the Canon RF lenses is a customisable ring that can be set to control settings like ISO, exposure compensation and more. Although it may seem trivial, having instant access to your most commonly used settings is incredibly useful and can dramatically improve your shooting workflow.
Get Up-Close and Personal
The lens features an impressive minimal focus distance of only 50cm, which only adds to the already impressive flexibility of the 24-240mm RF Lens. This means you can get up-close to your subject without worrying that your shots will be out of focus and blurry.
Ultimate Travel Zoom for Canon EOS-R Cameras
The Canon RF24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS USM is the perfect blend of versatility and portability, not only does it offer an impressive 10x zoom range for the creative freedom to capture almost any composition but it’s compact and portable. Weighing only 750g the lens is a perfect match for the Canon R Series of lightweight mirrorless cameras.
