Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS Review (a good travel lens)

Canon RF 24-240mm F/4-6.3 IS Review

Here is a Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS review.

Dustin Abbott reviewed the Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS, an affordable and versatile all-in-one zoom lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system. This seems to be the perfect travel lens for EOS R/RP owners.

From his conclusion:

The Canon RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM is not going to set any records for performance, but that’s not what it was designed for.  It was designed for people who don’t like to change lenses all the time and want a lens for their new mirrorless camera that can do a little bit of everything.

[…] It is also for travelers who want to be able to shoot everything from landscapes to telephoto shots and not have to mess with lugging a bag full of lenses around all day.

[…] It is one of the few lenses on the RF mount to date that don’t completely break the bank, and it turns the EOS R/RP/future body into a flexible platform for capturing a wide variety of situations in either stills or video. It has a competent IS and AF system and good enough optics to deliver a lot of great pictures. Learn to use it well and you can mitigate its shortcomings. I have to admit that despite having a kit full of great lenses, a lens like the RF24-240mm appeals to me for the simple reality of its flexibility.

Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS Review (a lot to offer, Photography Blog)

Canon RF 24-240mm F/4-6.3 IS Review

Photography Blog posted their Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS Review.

The Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS is a compact and lightweight zoom lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system, and it’s one of the less expensive lenses for the system.

From their conclusion:

The Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS is the most versatile all-in-one lens currently available for the EOS R camera system, and thankfully it bucks the trend of most super-zooms by actually being a good performer in terms of the image quality.

[…] In conjunction with the EOS RP, this is truly a combination that you could carry round all day without noticing, without any real compromises in terms of the build quality. Sure, some degree of weather-proofing would have been nice, but given the price, this is hardly a surprising omission.

In terms of features, the RF 24-240mm has a lot to offer for what is after all a non-L-series lens, most notably built-in image stabilisation worth up to 5-stops. It’s also the first full-frame lens to feature Dynamic IS for smoother results while shooting video.

Press release:

Alerting All Wanderlust Photographers, Canon Announces Its First RF Telephoto Zoom Lens, The RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM

The All-in-One RF Travel Lens Provides High-End Features Such as Nano USM at an Entry-Level Price Tag

MELVILLE, NY, July 8, 2019 – Introducing the next travel companion for photographers, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the sixth lens in the RF family, the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM telephoto zoom lens. As the first telephoto zoom lens designed for EOS R and EOS RP full-frame mirrorless cameras, the compact and lightweight 10x zoom RF 24-240mm provides photographers high-quality images and video capture at a budget-friendly price point. 

“Providing photographers of all skill levels with the invaluable tools to help capture and create the images they desire has been and will continue to be a paramount goal for Canon,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The new RF 24-240mm is an excellent option as an all-around travel lens that provides attractive features for a wide variety of image capture.”

The RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM lens is equipped with Nano USM, providing users quick, high-speed and precision auto focus (AF) when shooting video and capturing still images. With the powerful Nano USM, this lens allows photographers and videographers full time manual focusing making possible the fine tuning and adjusting of focus while in AF mode. This is the first Canon lens designed for full-frame cameras to feature Dynamic IS and utilizes a CIPA-standard, five-stop image stabilization system. The five-stop IS allows photographers to capture images and record videos with minimal shake, even during nighttime sightseeing or in dimly lit indoor events, without the need of a tripod.

When paired with the recently announced EOS RP full-frame mirrorless camera, the compact and lightweight portability of the RF 24-240mm rivals that of a Canon APS-C camera system with a comparable EF-S lens. The RF 24-240mm and EOS RP kitted together are only slightly heavier and longer than the EOS Rebel T7i when it is kitted with the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. The diminished form factor of the new lens and EOS RP together, as compared to other full-frame mirrorless camera systems using a similar focal-length telephoto zoom lens, make the lens and camera the ideal kit for travelers who are constantly on the go. 

Additional features of the Canon RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM include: 

  • Minimum focusing distance of 1.64 feet/0.50 meters at wide angle and 2.56 feet/0.78 meters at telephoto
  • Maximum magnification of 0.26x at telephoto
  • Approximate weight of 750 grams/26.4 ounces
  • Customizable control ring that allows photographers to adjust exposure compensation, shutter speed, aperture or ISO
  • 21 lens elements in 15 groups including one Aspheric and Two UD Lens
  • 12-pin communication system

Pricing and Availability 

The Canon RF 24-240mm F4-6.3mm IS USM lens is scheduled to be available September 2019 for an estimated retail price of $899.99*. In addition, Canon will offer a new EOS RP kit that includes the RF-24-240mm for an estimated retail price of $2199.00*. For additional information, please visit,  usa.canon.com.
