The Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens combines a bright fixed f/2.8 aperture with a 5 stop optical image stabiliser and offers excellent edge to edge sharpness throughout the zoom range. This dynamic addition to the EOS R series line-up features a ultra-wide 15mm which allows you to perceive beyond what the human eye can see, while the 35mm focal length offers a view close to human vision, all covered within one single lens. This makes it perfect for landscape, architecture and general use.
Thanks to Canon’s Nano USM technology the lens offers accurate and silent AF, and allows for clear shots in a variety of lighting conditions — even at night or in dark settings.
You can ensure your images stay sharp and steady — whether shooting handheld or in poorly-lit situations — with up to 5 stops* of shake correction.
The large-diameter RF mount and short back focus design, allowed the RF 24-70mm F2.8 L IS USM lens to feature a balanced and comfortable design for an ease of operation use, and amazing performance in various lighting situations, even in low-light areas delivering detailed images.
For an added layer of protection during tricky weather conditions, this lens is expertly sealed around its panels, switch and lens mount to prevent water and dust from entering into the lens. The fluorine coating on the surface of the front and rear elements ensure that oil and water is easily repelled and can be easily wiped off with just a dry cloth, without the use of solvent.
The RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens is designed to work in conjunction with an EOS R series camera, with both the camera and the lens sharing data to dramatically reduce camera-shake blur, regardless of the situation, whether shooting video or stills. With up to 5 stops* of stabilization, it delivers clear results.
Equipped with Canon's NANO USM system the lens delivers high-speed, smooth, precise and near-silent operation, during still image AF and smooth movie AF.
Taking advantage of the RF mount, the RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens offers incredible optical quality and a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture. Featuring 3 aspheric lenses for high image quality from centre to corner and 3 UD lenses to help reduce aberrations for minimized distortion, the RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens can deliver sharp images with reduced distortion in the edges of the frame and an overall improvement in image quality no matter the subject.
The RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM lens features Canon's Air Sphere Coating (ASC), which significantly reduces the occurrence of lens flare and ghosting regardless of focal length or the angle of light. This helps provide clean results with minimal distractions and aberrations.
Featuring a minimum focusing distance of 0.28m with a maximum magnification of approx. 0.21x, the RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens provides incredible versatility from nearly any distance. Whether you’re shooting videos, still images of nature, close ups, architecture or sports, the RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens can easily provide stunning images with minimal distortion.
S separate, independent control ring located towards the front of the lens, can be programmed for immediate exposure adjustments during still and video shooting. With the control ring, you can directly adjust settings such as shutter speed, lens aperture, exposure compensation and more. For photographers and moviemakers who would prefer a silent control ring, the clicking mechanism can be removed by a Canon service provider for a fee.
Designed to quickly process data, the RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM lens features the 12 pin communication system inherent in all RF lenses. This accelerates AF, Image Stabilization, the Digital Lens Optimizer and more, helping to simplify complex operations and provide a quick and reliable user experience
As part of the EOS R system, the RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM lens works with an EOS R series camera to display the lens information right in the viewfinder – making it easy to confirm the lens's focal length without looking away from the subject at hand.
In-camera Digital Lens Optimizer
The EOS R system's 12 pin communication system enables the Digital Lens Optimizer, which works in-camera to combat aberrations and image deterioration, especially in the edges of the image frame when shooting at a large aperture. Data from the RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM lens is transferred automatically to the camera body, facilitating near immediate correction for clear, detailed images.
The RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM lens is built to endure the rigors of professional use. Constructed to be rugged, refined and precise, it can be operated intuitively so concentration can remain on the subject at hand. The lens also features L series level vibration shock resistance in the lens barrel, helping to maintain focus and settings even in turbulent situations.
For reliable performance even when weather conditions get difficult, the RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM lens features a dust- and weather-resistant construction in the lens mount, switch panel and all rings. Sealing is applied to lens joining sections, and switch panels to help prevent water and dust from entering into the lens.
The RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM lens features fluorine coatings on the front and rearmost surfaces to help prevent dirt and dust from sticking to the lens, making it easy to clean smudges and fingerprints off.
