A Review of the Highly Useful Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 Macro IS STM Lens

24mm lenses with wide maximum apertures are prized by many creatives for their versatility, as they are at home in a wide range of genres and applications. The Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 Macro IS STM builds on that flexibility by adding macro capabilities and image stabilization to the equation, making it quite the intriguing lens for a lot of users. This great video review takes a look at the lens and the sort of performance and image quality you can expect from it in practice. 

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this excellent video review takes a look at the Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 Macro IS STM lens. Featuring a maximum magnification of 0.5x (minimum focusing distance of 5.5 inches), the 24mm f/1.8 is at home in numerous situations, making it seemingly the perfect walkaround lens, particularly for things like hikes. In addition to those features, it also comes with one ultra-low dispersion element and one aspherical element for reduced chromatic aberrations and increased sharpness and a Super Spectra coating for reduced flares and ghosting and better contrast. A rounded nine-blade diaphragm provides smoother bokeh, while the customizable Control Ring can be used for changing parameters like ISO intuitively and easily. Altogether, it looks like quite the interesting lens, and at $599, it is competitively priced. Check out the video above for Abbott's full thoughts on it.
