Product Overview

Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8L IS USM is a standard zoom lens for Canon RF-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Canon in 2019, it has 21 elements in 15 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8L IS USM is externally-zooming. For incremental weathers, Canon is kind enough to include weather sealing.
A standard zoom lens with relatively bright maximum aperture, the Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8L IS USM can be a key piece in a photographer's arsenal, though some may prefer prime lenses in this focal range. The lens is also stabilized, making it even easier to use for videos and stills alike.
