Canon announced on October 24 that it will release the RF70-200mm F2.8 L IS USM large-diameter telephoto zoom lens for the full-size mirrorless "EOS R" series on November 21. The price is open, and the price at the Canon Online Shop is 310,000 yen [excluding tax].
The first large-diameter telephoto zoom lens for RF mounts. Taking advantage of the large-diameter mount and short back focus, the large-aperture lens is arranged on the mount side to make the optical system compact, and the total length changes during zooming, so it is 70-200mm / F2 for full size. It is the smallest and lightest in the world for a .8 compatible lens.
The total length of the EF mount version "EF70-200mm F2.8 L IS III USM" is 199mm, whereas the RF mount RF70-200mm F2.8 L IS III USM is 146mm, which is 27% smaller. The weight of the EF mount version is 1,480g, while the RF mount version is 1,070g, 28% lighter. Unlike the EF mount version, which used an inner zoom that does not change the overall length during zooming, the RF mount version is a type in which the front lens extends forward during zooming.
Canon's first lens equipped with “Electronic Floating Focus Control” that moves the floating lens that corrects aberrations and the focusing lens with two ultrasonic motors “Nano USM” enables smooth focusing even when shooting movies. I was able to do it.
The shortest shooting distance is 0.7m over the entire zoom range. The filter diameter is 77mm. The lens has a dustproof and splashproof structure.
