From Up-Close To Far Away, New Canon RF Lenses Have You Covered
The Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens is not only Canon’s first RF lens designed specifically for macro photography, but also the world’s first3 medium telephoto macro lens with a maximum magnification of 1.4x. The new lens, designed for both advanced photo enthusiasts and professionals, takes macro photography expression to the next level with the introduction of a spherical aberration (SA) control ring. The SA control ring allows users to change the character and appearance of the bokeh and obtain a softer focus effect with a simple turning of the ring to the desired result. Additional features of the Canon RF100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM include:
Optical Image Stabilizer with up to five stops of Shake Correction4.
When combined with a camera featuring In-Body Image Stabilizer, up to eight stops of shake correction5 is possible with coordinated operation of Optical and In-Body Image Stabilizer.
Hybrid IS helps to compensate for angular and shift camera shake during macro shooting.
High-speed, smooth and quiet auto focus with dual nano USM.
Customizable control ring that allows photographers to adjust exposure compensation, shutter speed, aperture or ISO.
Rugged Canon L-series dust and water-resistant design.
Ever wondered how to photograph your own eye? I tried some years ago. It turned out to be a bit more complicated than I thought.
It wouldn’t probably have been that complicated if I had access to the video tutorial by The Giant World of Tiny Things. In 10 minutes they explain how to do, and it turns out it still needs some efforts to photograph your own eye :-)
Here is a new, good Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM review. This relatively affordable lens for the EOS R is gaining momentum among reviewers.
Coming from Christopher Frost, the Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM review investigates image stabilization, macro ability and overall image quality, among other stuff. Image quality can’t be that bad if this lens scored better than the EF 85mm f/1.2 at DxOMark”s test.
DPReview posted a gallery with Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS sample pictures. The Canon RF 85mm f/2 IS STM is one of the less expensive lenses for the RF mount (not a boutique lens). And it has macro functionality.
