Recently announced by Canon is the RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM – the widest RF lens to date. Canon says that the new zoom lens completes the company's RF trinity of “kitbag-friendly", compact f/4 lenses. The lens boasts quiet autofocus via a Nano USM focus motor, a 5.5-stop optical image stabiliser (7-stops when using the EOS R5 and R6), and a build with 16 elements in 12 groups that includes three aspherical and three UD elements, along with a number of advanced proprietary lens coatings, including Sub-wavelength Structure Coating (SWC) and Air Sphere Coating (ASC), designed to minimise ghosting and flaring.
An ideal choice for landscape and architectural photography, the RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM tips the scales at just 540g and has a 77mm filter thread and a minimum focus distance of 0.2m. The lens also features a control ring for direct settings changes which can be mapped from the camera along with extensive weather sealing.
The lens is expected to ship from late August, with pricing yet to be confirmed.
