Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L USM Overview

  • 1Description

Combining the versatility of a zoom with the speed typically reserved for a prime, the Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L USM is a wide-angle to portrait-length lens distinguished by its impressively unique f/2 constant maximum aperture. This bright design yields excellent low-light performance along with enhanced control over depth of field for isolating subject matter. Ultra-Low Dispersion glass is employed in the optical design, and greatly reduces color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to realize high clarity and color accuracy. Complementing the advanced optical properties is Canon's proven ring-type Ultrasonic Motor, which delivers fast and quiet autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus control. Additionally, unique to RF lenses, this 28-70mm incorporates a configurable Control Ring for intuitively adjusting exposure settings, including ISO, aperture, and exposure compensation, from the lens itself.

Standard wide-angle to short-telephoto zoom lens is designed for use with full-frame Canon RF-mount mirrorless cameras.
Impressively bright f/2 maximum aperture maintains consistent illumination throughout the zoom range and suits working in low-light conditions as well as affords increased control over depth of field for working with selective focus techniques.
Ultra-Low Dispersion (UD) elements are featured in the optical design, and help to suppress color fringing and chromatic aberrations in order to achieve greater clarity and color accuracy throughout the zoom range.
A ring-type Ultrasonic Motor (USM), along with an internal focusing design, optimized focusing algorithms, and a high-speed CPU, is employed to deliver fast, precise, and quiet autofocus performance as well as full-time manual focus override.
Configurable Control Ring can be used to adjust a variety of exposure settings, including aperture, ISO, and exposure compensation.
As a member of the esteemed L-series, this lens has a weather-resistant design that protects against dust and moisture to enable its use in inclement conditions.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

    Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L USM Reviews

    RF 28-70mm f/2L USM Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Groundbreaking Ive been a Canon shooter for 30 years.  I started with an FTB match-needle and a 50mm 1.2 which instilled my love for a bright view with pleasing bokeh.  This lens has both.  It definitely feels heavy and appears to dwarf the camera but it is manageable because it is compact in length.  It provides everything that you could hope for save for an non-heart-stopping price.  But when you pick it up you will know that youre holding some Canon geniuss baby.  Its nothing like any other Canon lens that I own--so different its rather hard to capture in words.  Read the reviews and decide for yourself but if you have the $ and the inclination, jump right in.  You wont be disappointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring and expensive One of the finest lenses that I have ever held in my hand.   It is exciting to think that this is the future.  I am not a Canon devotee.   I shoot Nikon, Olympus, and previously Sony.   I purchased the EOS R so that I could try the Canon RF lenses and I think that they are spectacular.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic zoom Well you have likely already heard this which is why you are reading about this, but this is clearly and simply the best 28-70mm zoom you can imagine. Its hard to give you an appreciation for the done and lack of distortion edge-to-edge on this lens. Very, very,very heavy, and it aint your brother -massive. The only thing that could make that worse is the wad of money to pay for it is equally heavy. Is it worth it? Only if you are obsessed with the absolute best. This is a great wedding lens, best in class performance on everything from low light performance to image quality. Frankly, it makes an excellent after lens of you dont need discretion and dont mind lugging this around all day. You wont go wrong with this lens and we can only hope this is the first installment of the photographic Trinity (cant imagine what a 70-200mm of this quality will weigh) and we can hope the 16-35mm will be more like 12-30mm. If go into more detail on build quality, weather resistance, etc. And the lack of stabilization since the EOS R had none but this isnt supposed to be an in-depth review. I love it and I think you would as well

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp Slick and smooth operation. Super sharp. Not that heavy. I was expecting worse.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Prime replacer zoom Background: long time Canon shooter who decided to try m43 a couple of years ago (first G85 and then GH5) and quickly appreciated the benefits of mirrorless: smaller cameras, hands-free video shooting thanks to IBIS, in-focus highlight, etc. I still love my GH5, but sometimes I miss shooting full frame for the look and for its low light capabilities when compared to m43. Was really excited when Panasonic announced their full-frame mirrorless cameras that promised to combine what I love about the GH5 with what I was missing. Nikon also came with their mirrorless cameras with IBIS and small lenses, and Sony cameras are regarded the best right now. But at the end, I chose Canon thanks to this really unique f2 zoom lens, and paired it with the cheap Canon RP camera (yes, it does not have IBIS, and the video features are meh, but this camera is really small and I found its ergonomics fantastic). This lens truly delivers: color, sharpness, bokeh. Fantastic! I had no problem getting sharp eyes at f2 of my kids sparing at Taekwondo thanks to the eye-tracking feature of the RP (the claimed increased lens-body communication speed of this new Canon mount seems to really help in this regard). Having much more fun than with my 1DX. No need to swap prime lenses. With this new mount, I suggest Canon should redefine what a holy trinity of lenses mean. How about, say, a 85-135 f2 and a f2 wide zoom also to accompany this lens? Mirrorless is really the future, and I cant wait for a Canon Pro body camera with increased fps and IBIS to make this system perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A privilege to own this lens! Canon really went for the jugular in terms of performance on this lens.  If you want great portraits or even nice rich Boka this lens has it all.  I like the fact its like owning several prime lenses in one.   Great job Canon, excited to see what new RF lenses are on coming out soon.

    Is there an adapter to connect this lens to an EF Canon body?
    Asked by: Noel
    No. distance between sensor and lens of RF lens is shorter than EF. The only reason you can adapt EF lens to RF body is because the adapter ADDS the space needed to properly focus the image.

    why is there no IS on this crazy expensive lens? and will this hurt ppl shooting video with it? will gimbal help?
    Asked by: Melisa
    Same as the std EOS L lens the 24-70 2.8 has no IS Whereas the 24-105 4.0 does. I donât think Iâve ever felt I needed it on the 24-70. But I take the point on video.

    My local camera shop didn't have any 95 mm ...

    My local camera shop didn't have any 95 mm filters in stock, so I went to Best Buy to pick up something while I wait for my filter to come in. My question (concern) for others, is my lens hood doesn't seem to fit properly now that the filter is on. I can see/feel a slight lip larger then the barrel of the lens and I'm sure that this is what's causing the hood from not going on without a fight. Does anyone else have filters on them and/or have this problem? I'm hoping it is isolated to this particular filter.
    Asked by: Jonathan
    I have the XS-PRO Digital (or as it's marked on the side of the filter) - and I have no issue with lens hood at all.
