A Review of the Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM Lens

Wide angle zoom lenses with an aperture of f/2.8 are often considered the standard for professionals, but there are many genres for which that wide aperture is not really needed, and photographers can take advantage of lighter, more affordable, and more capable lenses if they are willing to use an f/4 lens. One such lens is the Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM, and this great video review takes a look at the kind of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Photos - FERA, this excellent video review takes a look at the Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM lens. This lens deviates from the usual f/2.8 aperture norm, offering benefits like reduced weight and cost, and perhaps just as interestingly, extra reach at the wide end compared to a standard 16-35mm f/2.8, which should make it particularly intriguing for landscape and architectural photographers who probably will not need that extra stop of light but will surely appreciate the additional compositional flexibility. Add in image stabilization, and it looks like a fantastic option for a wide range of applications, especially those who like to keep moving and not set up a tripod for every single shot. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
