The RF24-105mm f/2.8 L IS USM Z is the first RF lens to feature iris control, giving filmmakers precise control over their creative expression. With a small f/stop of f/2.8 and 11-blade circular aperture, this lens allows you to achieve that coveted cinematic out-of-focus effect. But that's not all – the lens also boasts up to 8 stops of image stabilisation, making handheld shots as steady as if they were taken on a tripod.
The dual Nano USM delivers fast, accurate and quiet AF that is perfect for video recording.
With the powerful coordinated stabilisation between the lens's Optical Image Stabilizer and In-Body Image Stabilizer of compatible cameras, get smooth natural-looking video recording even while walking.
When recording videos, a typical phenomenon that occurs is a 'pulsing effect' in the footage whereby the camera's angle of view changes slightly during focus racking. The RF24-105mm f/2.8L IS USM Z addresses this by compensating for the change in field of view when the focus point is changed, resulting in seamless video recording.
Introduced for the first time on a standard zoom lens, the RF24-105mm f/2.8L IS USM Z has 3 selectable IS modes:
With two Nano USMs, the lens focuses very quickly and silently, making it suitable even for movie recording.
When combined with the newly improved floating focus system, the lens is able to suppress focus fluctuation when zooming to deliver outstanding image quality throughout the focusing range.
The RF24-105mm f/2.8L IS USM Z delivers superior image quality throughout the image, including the edges, with its innovative design and optical configuration made possible by the RF mount.
The RF24-105mm f/2.8L IS USM Z is the first to use replica aspheric lens with glass-molded (GMo) aspherical lenses to achieve superior image quality. The replica aspheric lens delivers superior surface precision while allowing for more design possibilities, which contributes to keeping the lens small.
