Canon is proud to announce several new lenses and extenders for the EOS R system, including the stunning L-series RF 100-500mm F4.5-7.1L IS USM, RF 600mm F11 IS STM and RF 800mm F11 IS STM for stunning reach and versatility. In addition to this, Canon also confirms the plan to launch additional RF lenses during 2020.
The RF lens mount enables a radical new optical design, allowing large lens elements to be placed as near to the sensor as possible, allowing light to hit the sensor straight on. This reduces optical aberrations, increasing the quality of the image.
The mount’s short back focus and wide 54mm mount diameter has made it possible for Canon optical engineers to have a new degree of freedom in order to create a new generation of optics – it provides an ideal balance between reducing the size of the system, high-quality images and high-spec performance.
EOS R System mount adapters are unique and offer additional creative control, enabling photographers and filmmakers to use their existing EF and EF-S lenses with full compatibility and no loss in performance.
