Canon rolls out two new telephoto and one ultra-wide lens
Canon has launched not one, but three new lenses, making enthusiast and pro photographers part with even more money in one go.
Without further ado, here are the new Canon lenses coming to Singapore.
RF200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS USM
The RF200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS USM is Canon’s first-ever super-telephoto zoom lens that can reach as far as 800mm.
Technically, it’s not Canon’s first 800mm lens, since it has the RF800mm f/11 IS STM. However, that’s a prime lens with a fixed 800mm focal length. The new RF200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS USM offers a range of 200mm to 800mm, which allows full-frame cameras to get a wider range of optical zoom in one lens.
The lens weighs 2,050g and measures 314.1mm long, making it comparable to its counterparts that end at 600mm. There are also up to 5.5 stops equivalent of built-in optical image stabilisation (at a focal length of 800mm with EOS R. Yaw/Pitch directions), a Nano Ultrasonic Motor for high-speed shooting, and support for Focus Breathing Correction. There are also two customisable lens function buttons.
If equipped with an APS-C camera, it offers a focal range of 320mm to 1,280mm.
The RF200-800mm f/6.3-9 IS USM has an official price of S$3,049, with availability to come at a later time.
RF24-105mm f/2.8 L IS USM Z
RF24-105mm f/2.8 L IS USM Z, the new professional standard zoom lens for RF mounts, and its accompanying Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E2, are available in Singapore.
This new lens takes the f/2.8 aperture from its RF24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM and combines it into the wide focal range offered on its RF24-105mm f/4L IS USM, birthing the RF24-105mm f/2.8 L IS USM Z. It also doubles up as the RF lens lineup’s first shooter to offer an iris ring, letting you adjust aperture like a cinema lens.
This new lens has a constant maximum aperture of f/2.8 over its entire 24-105mm focal range, on top of support for 8K or 6K video recording. For circular bokeh effect, the lens offers 11 circular diaphragm blades, which is more than any other RF lens Canon has. Inside are two individually driven Nano Ultrasonic Motors for steadier, more consistent focusing, on top of built-in optical image stabilisation and a 3-mode IS switch.
The lens comes bundled with a new tripod mount that’s detachable without special tools, and the LH-E1 lens holder (sold separately) can help hold the lens on a rig system. Also separately sold is the Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E2, which allows for single-operator zoom control during videography.
The RF24-105mm f/2.8 L IS USM Z retails at S$4,739, while the Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E2 retails at S$1,589. Availability will come at a later date.
RF-S10-18mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM
Last to the trio is a ultra-wide-angle zoom lens designed for APS-C EOS R cameras — the RF-S10-18mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM.
At 55.9mm long and 150g, this ultra-wide shooter is 40% shorter and lighter than its EF mount counterpart (EF-S10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM), making it even more stable for handheld vlogging.
Other perks include a built-in optical image stabiliser with up to 4 stops of camera shake reduction, and 14cm focusing distance throughout the entire focal range. You can also turn off AutoFocus to achieve 8.6cm focusing distancing and 0.5x half-macro shots through its Centre Focus Macro effect.
The RF-S10-18mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM retails at S$529. Availability to be announced at a later date.
