Canon’s EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera system welcomes a new lens

The RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS USM zoom, making six now available in the EOS R system and only the second non L lens

If you want just one lens for your photography this 10x zoom that weighs just 750g could be the one for you. It makes the most of the opportunity given by the innovative EOS RF lens mount to produce a high quality but compact zoom and it features a Dynamic Image Stabiliser that gives a 5EV benefit whether you are shooting handheld stills or video.

The lens’s advanced optical construction boasts 21 elements in 15 groups that includes aspheric and ultra-dispersal lens elements and Canon’s renowned Super Spectra lens coating.

Autofocusing is handled by Canon’s Nano USM technology. Nano USM combines the benefit of Canon’s STM and ring USM focusing technologies and uses Dual Pixel CMOS autofocus across most of the 35mm frame. The result is smooth, silent and fast autofocusing.

The massive focal length coverage allows huge creative potential and this is enhanced further by the lens’s impressive 50cm minimum focusing distance.

The RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS USM costs £899.99 or buy it with the EOS RP camera at the money saving price of £1999.99, which is £300 cheaper than if the items are bought separately. The EW-78F lens hood is an optional extra costing £34.99. This lens will be available from this September.
