The RF 24mm f/1.8 MACRO IS STM is designed for photographers who want a compact, lightweight wide angle lens for shooting on-the-go. Ideal for travel and landscape photography, it weighs only 270 grams and features a fast maximum aperture and five stops of optical stabilisation, which can increase to 6.5-stops of Coordinated Control IS when used with an EOS R series camera with IBIS. The optical design consists of 11 elements in nine groups, with super spectra coating to prevent ghosting and flare. A gear type STM focusing motor enables fast and quiet focusing in a small form factor, while the minimum focusing distance of 14cm provides half life size magnification. its 9-blade iris diaphragm closes to produce a circular aperture for attractive bokeh.
The customisable Lens Control Ring lets photographers fine tune ISO or aperture adjustments and switch between AF methods, while the dedicated focus ring is assisted by lens information display to offer even greater focusing assistance. When used with an EOS R series APS-C sensor camera, such as the EOS R7 or EOS R10 this lens has an effective focal length of approximately 35mm. The RRP for this lens is AU$1049 and it is not supplied with a lens hood. Click here for more information.
