Is The Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS The Best Kit Lens On The Market?

Canon RF 24-105mm F/4L IS Review Canon EOS R

Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS at a glance:

  • RF-Mount Lens/Full-Frame Format
  • Aperture Range: f/4 to f/22
  • Super Spectra Coating
  • Nano USM AF System
  • Optical Image Stabilizer
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

Tony & Chelsea Northrup posted a 9 minutes review of the Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens for the EOS R full frame camera system.

A interchangeable camera system’s appeal depends largely by the its lens ecosystem. Something Fujifilm understood early and did right, and Canon didn’t apparently are too much with their APS-C mirrorless system, the EOS M.

Canon seems to have reminded how important the lens ecosystem is for a new camera system when they introduced the EOS R. While the RF 28-70 mm F/2L and especially the RF 50mm F/1.2L are the lenses that showcase the capabilities of the new RF mount,  the RF 24-105mm f/4L IS is the kit lens for the EOS R. A pretty good kit lens it appears.

We’ve now taken over 1,600 photos with the Canon EOS R and the 24-105 f/4 lens… and it’s a pretty fantastic combination for general, do-it-all consumer photography. The RF 24-105 f4 L IS is sharper than other kit lenses we’ve tested, including the Sigma 24-105 f4 and the Canon EF 24-105 f4 L IS. It’s almost as sharp as the Canon 24-70 f/2.8, but not quite (and of course, it’s a stop slower). While it’s not a professional-grade lens, it’s well-built, fairly compact, and extremely versatile.

Well, engineering lenses is something Canon does very good.

The Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens for EOS R is a “Monster Performer”

Canon RF Vs EF 50mm F/1.2 EOS R System

Digital Camera World posted a short review of what for sure appears to be the best performing lens for the new Canon EOS R system, the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM. They call it a “monster performer, with a price and weight to match“. This is the lens Canon built to showcase what you can do with the newly engineered RF mount. Unfortunately, the Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L sells at $2,299.

Their verdict:

Not only was this designed to be a lust-worthy launch day lens for the EOS R, it was envisioned as a demonstration for what the new RF mount is capable of. The price tag is tear-inducing, but mount this fantastic lens on the EOS R and even the most vocal naysayer will be a believer in what Canon is trying to achieve with the system.

This is what we know about Canon’s RF Mount Lenses Roadmap (3 more lenses with f/2.8 coming in 2019)

Rf Mount

Not very much, to be honest.

DC.Watch posted a picture (above) of a slide taken from a Canon meeting which gives us some hints about what is coming. In 2019 Canon will most likely announce three more fast lenses with f/2.8: a wide angle lens, a prime lens, and a telephoto lens. Shipping is expected in October 2018.
