Canon introduces two ‘most popular’ lenses

Continuing its commitment to providing mirrorless solutions for all photographers, Canon Europe has announced that two of its most-loved EF lenses will now be available in RF form – the RF 50mm F1.8 STM and RF 70-200mm F4L IS USM.

The new RF version of Canon’s EF 50mm f/1.8 STM – nicknamed the ‘nifty fifty’ lens for its versatility – is “perfect” for enthusiast photographers transitioning to the EOS R System.

Photographers looking to shoot everything from portraits to landscapes, day or night, can achieve “incredible” image quality and a new standard of ‘nifty fifty’ when using the RF 50mm F1.8 STM.

A Canon statement said, “The RF 70-200mm F4L IS USM, also announced today, is a L-series telephoto zoom lens which is the world’s shortest and lightest f/4 interchangeable lens in its focal range. The RF 70-200mm F4L IS USM provides amateur and professional photographers with high-performance, flexibility and a compact design to suit a variety of genres from wildlife and sports to travel and portraiture.

“Both lenses join the RF family, which already includes prime, zoom, telephoto and super telephoto lenses and extenders.”

According to it, using the lenses with Canon’s full-frame mirrorless camera bodies in the revolutionary EOS R System, from the recently launched EOS R5 and EOS R6 to the EOS R and EOS RP, photographers and videographers have greater levels of performance and creative flexibility.
