A Review of the Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens

Canon has been pushing the boundaries of lens design with many of their new RF mirrorless lenses, and while they are certainly quite impressive, some photographers just want more traditional workhorse lenses they can rely on. If you are one of those photographers, you should check out this great review of the Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM lens.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost Photography, this excellent review takes a look at the Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM lens. Canon's RF 28-70mm f/2L is certainly a highly impressive lens, but with a huge footprint and top-shelf price tag, it might be more than a lot of photographers need, particularly since the 24-70mm f/2.8 lens is one of the most common, a staple of a lot of photographers' kits. But there was still always room for improvement over its EF predecessor, and perhaps the most exciting feature is the addition of image stabilization, something that photographers have been clamoring for for years. Along with that come some notable improvements in image quality, all adding up to an intriguing lens for lots of photographers. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts.

Canon has no choice really than to make this anything less than impeccable. Expensive, but goes to show how decades of experience can be quickly pooled to create a modern replacement for an ancient workhorse. Nikon is the same, with even more decades of lens experience.

Agree. People complaining about lack of affordable RF lenses. Canon is smart they know Sigma and Tamron will eat Canon's lunch if they start competing on price. This is why Canon producing hard to replicate Unicorn lenses instead..
