A Review of the Canon RF 15-30mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM Lens

Coming in a relatively small and portable package and at a price that will not break the bank, the Canon RF 15-30mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM offers photographers access to all the most common ultra-wide angle focal lengths along with a few extra useful features. Can it offer the sort of performance and image quality professionals need? This excellent video review takes a look.

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the Canon RF 15-30mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM lens. At just $549 and with extra features like image stabilization and 0.52x maximum magnification, the 15-30mm f/4.5-6.3 looks like quite the versatile lens. It also comes with:

  • Two ultra-low dispersion elements for reduced chromatic aberrations and increased clarity 
  • One aspherical element for reduced distortion and increased sharpness
  • Super Spectra coating for reduced flares and ghosting and increased contrast
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Image Stabilization offering up to 5.5 stops of compensation (7 in tandem with in-body image stabilization)
  • STM motor for fast and quiet autofocus suitable for both photo and video work
  • 1:2 maximum magnification

Altogether, the RF 15-30mm f/4.5-6.3 looks like a nice value that offers a lot of flexibility. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts.
