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

A wide-aperture 24mm lens is useful for a huge range of applications ranging from astro work to event photography, and when you add in macro capabilities and image stabilization, it becomes all the more versatile. The Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 Macro IS STM has all those things, making it quite the intriguing option for a lot of photographers, and this excellent video review takes a look at just what kind of image quality and performance you can expect from it in usage. 

Coming to you from Christopher Frost, this great video review takes a look at the Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 Macro IS STM lens. With a minimum focusing distance of 5.5 inches (maximum magnification of 0.5x), the 24mm f/1.8 Macro is quite adaptable, making it the type of lens that is perfect for things like hikes and the like. Along with the close-up capabilities and image stabilization, the lens also comes with one ultra-low dispersion element and one aspherical element for less chromatic aberrations and better sharpness and Super Spectra coating for less flares and ghosting and deeper contrast. It also features a customizable Control Ring and a rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh. Altogether, for $599, it looks like a very fun and flexible lens. Check out the video above for Frost's full thoughts on it.
