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.

Does this lens have the same massive barrel distortion at the wide end that will need to be autocorrected like the 14-35?
Asked by: David
Like most lenses wider than 20mm, the Canon RF 15-30mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens does distort at the wide end of the lens. And depending on the specific shot can be better or worse as distortion goes. But most lenses that wide unless you are square at the subject will distort.
