Canon RF 15-35mm F2.8L IS Image Gallery
October 21st, 2020
Canon’s new RF mount has unleashed Canon’s creativity and ability to do things they couldn’t before. In the past, one had to choose between wider maximum aperture (EF 16-35mm F2.8L III) or having an image stabilizer (EF 16-35mm F4L IS), but the wider diameter mount along with superior communication ability has allowed Canon to give us the Canon RF 15-35mm F2.8L IS, a lens that goes wider (110° vs 108°) and has both the wider maximum aperture (F2.8) and the Image Stabilizer (an effective 5 stop stabilizer). In fact, if you pair the RF 15-35mm with the new EOS R5 or EOS R6, you can actually get an effective 7 stops of stabilization (according to Canon). There’s certainly enough stability there to make handholding video and getting decent VLOG results easy. Canon has also managed to retain the ability to use traditional screw on filters at a large but relatively common 82mm size.
As has been commonly the case with Canon’s RF mount lenses, the price tag is not cheap. The RF 15-35mm will set you back $2300 USD, which is expensive no matter how you slice it. There are two ways to look at this price, however, as if you consider how much more it has to offer than the EF 16-35mm F2.8L III, it is a relative bargain, adding image stabilization and a wider zoom range for only $100. At the end of the day, however, that price is going to be the greatest limiting factor for many potential buyers, though, at this stage, there are few alternatives available in a native RF mount.
The photo galleries below will give you a closer look at the lens along with photos taken with it on the Canon EOS R5 camera. Stay tuned for my upcoming reviews!
