Canon's mirrorless lenses have been esoteric, exquisite, and... expensive. While they're certainly spectacular pieces of glass, some photographers have been waiting for the more standard workhorses to come along. The good news is that they are on their way quite soon.
While the RF 28-70mm f/2L is undoubtedly an amazing lens, it's also quite expensive and large, two characteristics that might dissuade some photographers from picking one up. For photographers who are more used to the standard 24-70mm f/2.8 lens, you'll be pleased to hear that Canon launched exactly that lens, with availability in late September. One pleasant surprise is that the lens will have image stabilization, something Canon shooters have been clamoring for in the 24-70mm f/2.8 lens for years. It also comes with three Ultra-Low Dispersion elements, three ashperical elements, and Air Sphere Coating as well as a customizable control ring. It will also feature nine aperture blades and 21 elements in 15 groups while coming in at a more manageable 1.98 lbs and $2,299. You can preorder yours here.
Along with the RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM will come the RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM, the wide angle component of the standard f/2.8 zoom holy trinity. This lens will feature image stabilization as well, along with nine aperture blades, 16 elements in 12 groups, and a weight of 1.85 lbs. It's expected to cost $2,299 and be available in late September as well. It also comes with two Ultra-Low Dispersion elements, three ashperical elements, and Air Sphere Coating as well as a customizable control ring. You can preorder yours here.
