Date:25 October 2019 Author: Leila Stein Tags:, ,

Professionals and amateurs alike will be excited by the release of the Canon RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM and RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS lenses.

The RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM completed the trinity series for the F2.8L RF mount is the world’s shortest and lightest interchangeable lens with a focal length of 70-200mm f/2.8 for interchangeable lens cameras. The lightest lens yet, it gives photographers the flexibility to shoot for longer periods of time, comfortably to capture the winning shot. This makes it ideal for sports, wildlife and portraits.

The RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS is a complementary lens to the RF 85mm F1.2L USM and shares the same optical excellence, but with a unique DS coating. This vapor-deposited coating technology softly and smoothly blurs the entire outline of bokeh. This makes the lens perfect for portraits and creating a cinematic look for video content creators. This lens also has a customisable control ring which gives the photographer direct control over Tv/Av/ISO settings.

Both lenses join Canon’s innovative RF lens line-up enabling photographers and videographers to capture high-quality still and moving images across all genres – from landscape and architecture, to portrait and nature, or sports and media.

The new lenses were designed based on customer feedback. Both are dust and water-resistant, making them perfect for all weather conditions.

The lenses will be available in South Africa from the beginning of December.
