Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM Lens


The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM Lens is part of Canon's new EOS R system, one of Canon's most important releases since the EOS system began about 30 years ago. To support the optical technologies of this new system, a new mount type – RF – has been introduced. RF lenses take full advantage of the benefits of a mirrorless design.

Lens and Sensor Distance

The distance between the RF lens' mount and the surface of the EOS R sensor has been reduced from 44mm in the EF/EF-S system to a mere 20mm. Having larger optical elements very close to the sensor means fewer aberrations, greater brightness, and better image performance overall. The number of contact pins has been increased, elevating the speed and volume of communication between the lens and camera. This is supported by a new microprocessor within the lens that increases communication without significantly increasing power consumption. This also allows the EOS R's new Digital Lens Optimizing system to make real-time aberration and distortion corrections over a wide range of shooting conditions and ensures sharpness even when shooting RF lenses at the widest apertures.

Control and Customization

Taking advantage of the communication features listed above, RF lenses provide the unique ability to assign custom shooting functions directly to the lens. A special tactile control ring on the barrel of the lens can be assigned to functions like aperture value, shutter speed, ISO adjustment, and exposure compensation. Rotation clicks give you the sensory cue needed to make these settings changes via the while while composing your shot. You can also can change the direction of manual focus control for the focusing ring.

Smooth AF Performance and Image Stabilization for Video

Incorporating a stepping motor (STM) focus drive system, this lens exhibits smooth, silent, and ultra-quick AF performance to meet the demands of video shooting. Built-in image stabilization works in tandem with the EOS R's Dual Sensing IS system, supporting slower shutter speeds in low light up to 5 stops.

Optical Versatility

This wide angle prime uniquely combines a large maximum aperture with 1:2 macro optics (half life size), a close focusing distance (down to just 6.7" from your subject), and extreme portability (this lens is under 3" long and less than a pound). Super Spectra coatings control flare and ghosting while special aspheric lens elements maintain subject sharpness and reduce distortion even at the widest apertures.

The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM Lens is an innovate prime that's an ideal choice for street and lifestyle photography as well as casual macro shooting. Its smooth AF performance and stabilization makes it perfect for shooting video and would be a great photo/video hybrid lens for weddings and other major events.
