High Image Quality
Thanks to the large-diameter RF mount and short back focus design, the RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens provides superb control over depth of field and the ability to maintain the same aperture throughout the zoom range. This is particularly helpful when shooting outdoors at dusk or in inclement weather, or indoors in dimly lit rooms.
Bright f/2.8 Aperture Standard Zoom RF L Lens
Thanks to its 16 elements in 12 groups and a 9-blade aperture system, the RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens is capable of gorgeous, out-of-focus areas and soft backgrounds throughout its zoom range. Its f/2.8 maximum aperture permits shallow depth of field and delivers an incredible level of control over background blur. The RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens helps you express the mood of your image, creating impact photos and videos.
Optical Image Stabilization of up to 5 Stops* of Shake Correction
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.
High Speed, Smooth and Quiet Auto Focus with Nano USM
The RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens is equipped with Canon's NANO USM system which features a diminutive chip-shaped ultrasonic motor that's engineered to help deliver high-speed, smooth, precise and near-silent operation, during still image AF and smooth movie AF.
Minimum Focusing Distance of 0.92 ft. / 0.28 m
Featuring a minimum focusing distance of 0.92 ft. / 0.28 m 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.
Control Ring for Direct Setting Changes
The RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens has a separate, independent control ring that is located towards the front of the lens, which can be programmable for immediate exposure adjustments during still and video shooting. With the control ring, you can directly adjust numerous settings including 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.
High-speed Communication with the Camera
Designed to quickly process data, the RF 15-35mm F2.8 L 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.
Lens Information Display
As part of the EOS R system, the RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens works with an EOS R series camera so that its lens information is displayed 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 F2.8 L IS USM lens is transferred automatically to the camera body, facilitating near immediate correction for clear, detailed images.
Three Aspherical Elements and Two UD Elements
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 center 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.
Air Sphere Coating (ASC) Minimizes Lens Flare and Ghosting
The RF 15-35mm F2.8 L 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.
Dust- and Weather-resistant
For reliable performance even when weather conditions get difficult, the RF 15-35mm F2.8 L 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.
Featuring fluorine coatings on the front and rearmost surfaces to help prevent dirt and dust from sticking to the lens, the RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens makes it easy to clean smudges and fingerprints off.
High Reliability and Durability for Professional Use
The RF 15-35mm F2.8 L 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.
Vibration Shock Resistance
Engineered to accommodate its optical system, the RF 15-35mm F2.8 L IS USM lens features L series level vibration shock resistance in the lens barrel, helping to maintain focus and settings even in turbulent situations.
