Ultra-Wide Zoom, Ultra-Versatile Design
Compact with wide-angle versatility, the Canon RF 15-30mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM pairs a portable design with a flexible focal length range ideal for landscape, architecture, and street subjects. Complementing the ultra-wide to wide range is also an Optical Image Stabilizer to reduce camera shake and a stepping AF motor that suits both photo and video uses.
Portable Zoom
  • Covering ultra-wide to wide-angle fields of view, this lens spans a useful range of focal lengths for a variety of subject types, including landscape, architecture, interiors, and street applications.
  • Modest variable maximum aperture contributes to a compact, lightweight design that's ideal for travel and walkaround shooting.
  • Two UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass elements control a variety of chromatic aberrations for high clarity and color accuracy.
  • One aspherical element reduces spherical aberrations and distortion for improved sharpness and accurate rendering.
  • Super Spectra Coating minimizes flare and ghosting for greater contrast when working in strong lighting conditions.
  • Configurable Control Ring can be used to adjust a variety of exposure settings, including aperture, ISO, and exposure compensation.
Autofocus and Image Stabilization
  • An Optical Image Stabilizer helps to minimize the appearance of camera shake by up to 5.5 stops, or 7 stops with coordinated IS, to better enable working in low-light conditions and with slower shutter speeds.
  • STM stepping motor offers fast, quiet, smooth, and accurate autofocus performance that is ideal for video recording as well as still shooting.
  • Close-up focusing capabilities enables working with a 1:2 maximum magnification and a 5.1" minimum focusing distance to suit photographing nearby subjects.

How does this lens compare to the RF 16mm f/2.8 for mainly video work?
Asked by: Stephen
Both lenses have pros and cons. The Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 STM Lens is lighter and more compact. This will be better in low-light with more background blur but the RF Canon RF 15-30mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens will have zoom capability. If you are using a gimbal, the Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 STM Lens will be a better option.
