- Aperture Range: f/2.8 to f/22
- Three Aspherical Elements

Poised to be the new workhorse zoom, the Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8 L IS USM is a versatile wide-angle to portrait-length lens characterized by its bright, advanced, and intuitive design. The constant f/2.8 maximum aperture suits working in difficult lighting conditions and also enables greater control over depth of field. The optical design incorporates a series of aspherical and Ultra-Low Dispersion elements, which greatly reduce a variety of aberrations throughout the zoom range in order to produce sharp and clear imagery. An Air Sphere Coating has also been applied to suppress flare and ghosting when working in strong lighting conditions.

Does this lens have the same zoom adapter that the Canon EOS 18-135mm USM lens has for video?
No. The PZ-E12 zoom adapter is unique and only works with the EF 85-135 lens you mentioned.

I purchased this lens for videos wondering if I could go with out the IS and get the 28-70 F2 Instead?
I don't do a lot of video (mostly still photos with my R). But IS is going to make your videos much less shaky if you are hand holding. If you are using a tripod or gymbal, than that is another story of course. Aside from that, I picked the 24-70 since the 28-70 F2 is much larger and heavier, and uses a larger and less common filter thread size; with the only advantage being the larger max aperture. And the 28-70 F2 is more expensive too, of course. The F2 would be nice to have, but I didn't personally think it justified the extra size, weight, cost, and expense.

I have canon R6 and a 24-105mm RF lens f/4. I am wanting to learn studio lighting concentrating on newborns and children. Is my lens ok for this or would the 24-70mm 2.8 work better for me because of the lower aperture? Thanks for any help and recommendations.
The RF 24-70mm f/2.8 has the advantage of the extra stop, however your current RF 24-105mm f/4 gives you the longer telephoto range. As far as which is the better lens, that would depend on whether you need the extra stop or the longer telephoto range.

I have three following questions: - I noticed RF lenses have no distance scale, and I don't know why?. - Can you manually override the focus like the EF 24-70 2.8L II lens ("Full time manual focus override")? - Is this RF 24-70 Strong Weather Sealed like the EF 24-70 2.8L II? Thank you very much!
Absence of focus distance scale is presumably for aesthetic reasons, and possibly to make room for the control ring (which IMO is extremely useful, and much more so than the focus distance scale). You can certainly have full time manual focus override. Although I had to go into settings to enable it. In the default settings, turning the focus ring (when lens is switched to AF) does nothing. But easy enough to change that setting. This lens is weather sealed, presumably to the level of other Canon "L" lenses. Although I haven't seen a teardown or direct comparison. But the build quality is excellent, and I expect the level of weather sealing is the same.

There's a slight click when zooming in and out, is this normal?
The only sound you get when you completely zoom out or zoom in Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8 L IS USM Lens is the sound of the lens barrel taps its maximum point. If you hear a click throughout the zoom it may be due to a manufacturing defect or accidental damage.
