The Canon F2.8 RF trinity lenses. Master any story with 5-stop image stabilisation that holds steady, plus smooth Nano USM focusing across an even wider focal range.

Reveal the world in every detail with the RF15-35mm F2.8L IS USM and discover new angles and views to tell your story. With the introduction of 5-stop image stabilisation this professional ultra-wide zoom achieves razor sharp detail even hand-held, for both stills and video.

The new professional standard is the RF 24-70mm F2.8L IS USM. It offers even more versatility in a professional zoom thanks to image stabilization, Nano USM for smooth video focusing and exceptional optics with state-of-the-art coatings for razor sharp results.

Completing the trinity of pro lenses is the RF70-200mm F2.8L IS USM. It’s small, but without compromise and being the world’s smallest professional 70-200mm f/2.8 zoom it can be taken to any assignment, anywhere.

The RF mount has a faster communication speed than a conventional DSLR, so more information can be passed direct to the camera, resulting in real-time lens optimisation for the sharpest of portraits, ultra-fast focusing and silent operation from Nano USM motors – a real advantage for video.

Nano USM focussing motor

The RF 15-35MM F2.8L IS USM and RF 24-70MM F2.8L IS USM are the first fast aperture zoom lens to feature Canon’s Nano USM technology. This technology uses a miniature ultra-sonic motor to drive the focusing system linearly, delivering extremely fast and silent focusing, making it ideal when shooting video and stills.
