Set New Standards in Photography
The RF 28-70mm F2L USM offers the kind of image quality you would expect from a prime lens, and adds an f/2 maximum aperture for more creative control. Redefining what can be expected of a standard zoom lens, the RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM features a fast f/2 aperture and delivers new levels of image quality.
Travel with a single zoom for space-saving flexibility. A versatile 28-70mm range is useful for many subjects, from big-sky landscapes to portraits, fine art and street photography.
Work quickly and quietly in a variety of situations. The RF 28-70mm F2L USM features an f/2 maximum aperture, letting you control shallow depth of field in portraits and capture ambience in low light.
The zoom and focal length recomposes and reframes quickly to capture that decisive moment. Focus and shoot in low light, and let Canon’s L-series quality inspire confidence – even in bad weather.
Image Quality that has to be Seen to be Believed
The RF 28-70mm F2L USM has all the optical, mechanical and electronic advantages of the EOS R system. Achieve extraordinary image quality and expect very high sharpness with low levels of distortion.
Redefine what You Expect from a Standard Zoom Lens
The performance of the RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM is nothing short of extraordinary, thanks to the Canon RF mount, which allows previously impossible optical designs to now be realised. The lens uses four aspherical elements, a pair of Ultra low Dispersion (UD) elements and a Super UD element to deliver the optical quality normally expected of a prime lens. It’s versatile too, with a zoom range that will find uses in just about every area of photography.
Super-Fast f/2 Maximum Aperture for Extra Creative Power
An f/2 maximum aperture gives photographers huge control over depth of field – perfect for portrait and wedding photographers looking to isolate a pin-sharp subject against a smooth out-of-focus background. Such a large aperture also allows for faster shutter speeds when shooting in low-light, which can freeze both subject movement and camera shake.
Smooth, Near-Silent Autofocusing, with Canon’s USM Technology
The RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM borrows the ring-type USM technology from Canon’s super-telephoto lenses in order to move its large glass elements quickly and in near silence. In combination with the fast data transfer allowed by the RF mount, this technology lets photographers focus fast. And tracking moving subjects with ease.
Simply Brilliant in Low Light
Experience faster shutter speeds and f/2 aperture that can freeze subject and camera movement. With a shallow depth of field, the RF 28-70mm F2L USM is ideal for emphasising a pin-sharp subject.
