Canon has announced three new lenses: the RF-S10-18mm f4.5-6.3; RF24-105mm f/2.8 L; and the RF200-800mm f/6.3-9.
The RF-S10-18mm f4.5-6.3 IS STM lens offers users of APS-C EOS R-series cameras an ultra wide-angle zoom at just $599.
Key features include:
- 10–18mm ultra-wide zoom (equivalent to 16-29mm on full-frame camera);
- Image stabilization;
- Compact and lightweight design;
- A new optical design, optimized for RF lens mount and APS-C sensor size.
The RF24-105mm F2.8 L IS USM Z is ‘the world’s first 24-105mm focal length lens combined with consistent f/2.8 maximum aperture’. It is also the first RF zoom lens to combine a dedicated iris/aperture control ring and servo functionality via an optional power zoom accessory, for super-smooth zooming during video operation. Its optical design contains 23 elements in 18 groups and includes four UD and three aspherical elements.
Local RRP is $5399.
The RF200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM super telephoto zoom lens is (relatively) lightweight at 2Kg.
Its optical design contains 17 elements in 11 groups and includes three UD (ultra-low dispersion) elements.
The super zoom automatically detects panning and adjusts stabilisation accordingly, and includes a zoom ring, a combined manual focus and control ring plus two custom function buttons and an AF/MF switch. The non-removable tripod collar includes both 3/8-inch and standard ¼-inch tripod mounts.
It’s weather sealed, approximately 314mm long,and has a maximum diameter of 102mm. Local price is $3499.
Canon says all three new lenses should be available in December, with power zoom adapters for the 24-105mm lens coming some time in Autumn.
