CameraLabs: Canon RF 24-105mm f4-7.1 STM review

One of my favorite reviewers, Gordon from CameraLabs completed his Canon RF 24-105mm f4-7.1 STM review. I recall when this was released the typical internet people were aghast.  I personally thought it was a good idea, because not everyone is "into" larger L lenses. Having a travel-worthy kit, and also bang for the buck lenses is what made the EF mount the most popular mount in the history of cameras.  Canon needs to recreate that magic when it comes to the new RF mount.

Features of the Canon RF 24-105 F4-7.1 IS IS STM include;

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • STM Stepping AF Motor
  • Center Macro Focus, 1:2 Magnification
  • Optical Image Stabilizer

Gordon's verdict;

The Canon RF 24-105 f4-7.1 STM is the budget kit zoom the EOS R system has been waiting for. Sure, it may lack the glamour of the brighter aperture and more exotic models, but every system needs a low-cost general-purpose zoom to bundle with the entry-level bodies as a starting point.

Thankfully modern lens design coupled with in-camera corrections actually makes it a lot better than you’d think, especially for the size, weight and money. In my tests it delivered respectable sharpness across the frame, throughout the range and even with the aperture wide-open. By employing a variable aperture that dims to f7.1 at the long-end, Canon’s been able to keep size, weight and cost down, making it a very practical and attainable option, while the reasonably close focusing increases its flexibility further.
