In mid-July 2022, two new full-frame lenses for the Canon RF-mount system were introduced:
- Canon RF 24mm F/1.8 Macro IS STM ($599)
- Canon RF 15-30mm F/4.5-6.3 IS STM ($549)
At the same time, the lenses are also very light 15-30mm weighs 390 grams, and 24mm f1.8 weighs a total of 270 grams and this is full-frame optics!
The Canon RF 24mm F/1.8 Macro IS STM lens can be used for macro photography. Approximation factor x0.5, similar RF 85mm f2 Macro. Only in this case, it is a wide-angle lens, which will allow you to take very interesting photographs in terms of composition.
Both lenses have built-in optical image stabilization that can work in conjunction with matrix stabilization in the camera.
It is worth noting the expansion of the range of budget RF optics. If at first the company produced top-end lenses like the Canon RF 15-35mm f2.8L, RF 28-70mm f2.0, RF 50mm f1.2, now we are witnessing the emergence of truly "folk" lenses that will be affordable and appeal to a wide range of amateur photographers.
