Canon adds two new, wide-aperture, professional, zoom lenses to its mirrorless RF mount lens lineup

New Canon lenses for the EOS R

Canon RF 24-70mm f2.8L IS USM

Pictured on the left, the 24-70mm f2.8 is a workhorse lens for professional photographers. This focal length range easily covers most working situations, from portraits to general views, without having to pause to swap lenses. Precision engineered to give superb image quality from edge to edge; when shooting wide open, your portraits and wide shots will benefit from a shallow depth of field and incredibly accurate focusing. The built-in image stabiliser works with the EOS R DIGIC processor to deliver five stops of stabilisation when working in challenging conditions. The lens also benefits from L-Series weather sealing.

Canon RF 15-35mm f2.8L IS USM

Pictured on the right, the 15-35mm f2.8 is only slightly larger than the 24-70mm. The extreme wide angle will benefit photographers shooting interiors and architecture. It also offers an extreme perspective for anyone working at close quarters to their subjects. With the silent shooting capabilities of the Canon mirrorless cameras, the 15-35mm could become the lens of choice for wildlife photographers using remote camera setups. The RF 15-35mm f2.8L IS has a built in image stabiliser and L-Series weather sealing.

Why choose RF lenses?

The EOS R system can be used with a range of adaptors to allow the use of the extensive range of EF lenses, a range that has made Canon one of the industry leaders. However many photographers prefer to use native lenses with a dedicated design to work with the camera body. The EOS R mirrorless system features a shallower body and a new lens mount. This new mount has opened the door to new lens technologies, however the EOS R launched with a limited number of native lenses available. We explored the benefits of the new mount and native lenses earlier in the year: Why use RF Lenses?

The RF 24-70mm f2.8L IS USM is £2329.00 including VAT at release.
The RF 15-35mm f2.8L IS USM is £2329.00 including VAT at release.

Canon EOS 90D image

Canon EOS 90D

Today Canon has announced the EOS 90D, an impressive update to a popular series. The EOS 90D features a higher resolution for stills and video than its predecessor, the EOS 80D, and it borrows features from highly praised high end cameras, the EOS 7D mark II and EOS 1DX mark II.

Canon EOS 90D

The EOS 90D is the latest in a series of cameras that started with the 10D in 2003, in its time the 10D was a very advanced camera boasting a whole six megapixels. Designed for enthusiasts, the series continued to bring excellent imaging performance to Canon users throughout the years. In 2013, the seventh body in the range, the EOS 70D, became a favourite for vlogging as it combined HD video recording with dual-pixel AF for accurate focus tracking while recording.

Released today, the EOS 90D has improved the 10D’s pixel count sevenfold, brings improved high speed shooting up to 10fps and the option of 4K video recording. The series has always been an ideal starting point for photographic enthusiasts, or a step-up after learning with an entry-level DSLR; and the EOS 90D is also a worthy backup body for any professional kit bag.

Headline specs for the EOS 90D

• High Speed continuous shooting: up to 10fps
• 32.5 mega pixel APS-C (crop) CMOS sensor
• 45 cross type AF points with joystick AF point controller
• Intelligent Tracking and Recognition focus system (iTR)
• 4K filmmaking and Dual Pixel CMOS AF
• Maximum ISO 25,600 – expandable to 51,200
• Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® enabled
• 220,000-pixel RGB+IR metering sensor
• Variable-Angle touchscreen to shoot from all angles

Pro technology in a smaller body

The EOS 90D contains the latest DIGIC 8 processor that enables 4K video recording and a high-speed stills frame-rate of 10 frames per second in RAW or jpeg. The AF tracking technology uses 45 cross type AF points and an iTR focus system found in Canon’s flagship models, the EOS 1DX mark II and EOS 7D mark II. iTR uses the phase detection focus points and the 220,000 pixel rgb metering sensor to identify subjects and maintain consistent focus tracking. New to the series is a long awaited ergonomic feature, the AF point joystick control. Positioned close to the AF-ON button on the back of the body, it allows the thumb to flick quickly between moving the AF point and locking on to your subject, without taking your eye away from the viewfinder.

Affordable, better reach, compatible with the entire EF & EF-S lens range.

The APS-C sensor size is smaller than a “full frame” 35mm sensor as a result the sensor receives light from the best and sharpest central portion of any full-frame lens. This cropping has the effect of pulling the subject closer, ideal for shooting distant subjects for sport and wildlife photography. It also means the EOS 90D available at a more accessible price than its full frame counterparts. Also more affordable are EF-S lenses, designed specifically for crop-sensor cameras the optics do not have to be as large as lenses made for full-frame camera bodies making the kit smaller and lighter, as well as cheaper.

The EOS 90D body only is £1209.00 including VAT at release, there are also kits with lenses available. Please contact our sales team for the latest prices.
