RF Lenses

Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8L IS USM

Part of the trinity of essential lenses alongside the RF 15-35mm and RF 70-200mm, the RF 24-70mm boasts a fast aperture and image stabilisation plus a Nano USM motor for silent focusing.

The professional’s choice for every occasion

Award-winning advertising and lifestyle photographer Matthew Joseph pushed the RF 24-70mm zoom to extremes by using it in water, where the risk of moisture ingress was very real, then worked in low light to create some exceptional portraits of a ladies rowing team.
