Product Overview

Canon RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM is an affordable ultra wide-angle zoom lens for Canon RF-mount. It covers the full-frame image circle. Introduced by Canon in 2022, it has 13 elements in 11 groups.
Like most zoom lenses, the Canon RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM is externally-zooming. Unfortunately, Canon has opted to omit weather sealing for this lens, so owners should pay extra attention when shooting in incremental weathers. The lens' build quality is also rather disappointing, even for its moderate price.
As an ultra wide-angle lens, this zoom can offer a unique perspective that many will appreciate.
