Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS Review (great AF & image quality, D. Abbott)

Canon RF 15-35mm F/2.8L IS Review

Here is a Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS review, the wide-angle member of the holy trinity of f/2.8 lenses.

Dustin Abbott posted his full Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS review. From his conclusion:

Canon has managed to increase the functionality of their “last generation” wide angle zooms by increasing the zoom range and giving both a wide maximum aperture and image stabilization all in one package. They impressively did this while managing to retain the ability to use traditional screw-in filters, which makes the lens more accessible and easier to use.

A lens like the RF15-35L makes it easy to get beautiful landscapes or dramatic wedding shots, though it is a lens designed around professionals.  It’s large and heavy, and thus requires that extra level of commitment to use.

It isn’t a perfect lens.  It is expensive ($2299 USD), which will be the chief obstacle to many potentially interested customers.  It has an obscene amount of vignette and a fair amount of distortion at 15mm.  But it has great autofocus, an excellent image stabilizer, and delivers sharp images with good color and contrast.  I doubt many will be put off by its performance, but there may be a few that are unwilling or unable to pay the price of entry.  That leaves room for Canon to do what it is has always done, though, and give us an F4 alternative at about 60% of the price.  But if you want it all, the Canon RF 15-35mm F2.8L IS USM is the wide angle zoom to get.

Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS Review (fantastic image quality, Photography Blog)

Canon RF 15-35mm F/2.8L IS Review

Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS review by Photography Blog.

The Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS is one of the “holy trinity” lenses for the EOS R system. A lens that’s not for everyone’s budget.

From the conclusion of the Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS review:

This lens is lovely and sharp, while also being very good at keeping distortion to a minimum. W’ve been using it with a Canon EOS RP, which arguably is not the best camera to use it with. But even the 30 megapixel Canon EOS R probably wouldn’t even do it justice – perhaps Canon will be announcing something with an ultra-high resolution sensor targeted more squarely at professional users than the existing line-up some time soon.

[…] Image quality from this lens is fantastic and if you’re somebody who has a need for an ultra-wide-angle lens for the Canon full-frame mirrorless system, it’s hard to deny just how excellent it is.
