Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8 IS USM Review

PhotographyBlog has completed thier comprehensive review on the Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8 IS USM.

The core features of the Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8 are;

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
  • Three Aspherical Elements
  • Three Ultra-Low Dispersion Elements
  • Air Sphere and Fluorine Coatings
  • Nano USM AF System
  • Optical Image Stabilizer
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

PhotographyBlog gave the lens 4 out of 5 stars with the only real critical comment being value for the money.  However, all the 24-70mm F2.8's are like this.  I'm not sure why the Canon one would be much different than anyone else's .. top of the line 24-70mm F2.8 simply cost a lot of money to develop and manufacture.  Of course, PhotographyBlog is in the UK, so there's all the VAT, and additional costs of doing business in the UK.

PhotographyBlog concludes;

the Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8L IS USM is is a big and heavy lens which doesn’t balance particularly well with the existing range of Canon EOS R bodies. To that end, if you are thinking of investing in this lens - or any of the professional trinity - it’s also worth picking up an optional battery grip to help balance things out.

Another problem with this lens is the high asking price. At over £2,300, it really is one for dedicated advanced enthusiasts or professional users.

The good news is that the Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8L IS USM lens is an excellent performer - so if you do have the cash to spend on it you shouldn’t be disappointed. It’s capable of producing some very sharp images along with very pleasing bokeh. It’ll be interesting to see if Canon releases a very high resolution model to really take advantage of what the lens is capable of.
