A Review of the Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens

The Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM is the company’s professional mirrorless wide angle zoom, making it a versatile lens for a variety of applications. This great video review takes a look at what you can expect from the lens in practice. 

Coming to you from Dustin Abbott, this excellent video review takes a look at the Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM lens. The 15-35mm f/2.8L is Canon’s professional mirrorless wide angle zoom, and it brings with it an array of features, including:

  • Two UD (Ultra-Low Dispersion) elements for reduced chromatic aberrations and increased clarity
  • Three aspherical elements for reduced distortion and increased sharpness
  • Air-Sphere Coating for reduced flares and ghosting and increased contrast
  • Optical Image Stabilizer with up to five stops of compensation
  • Nano USM focusing system for quick and quiet autofocus suitable for both photo and video work
  • Customizable Control Ring
  • Protective Fluorine Coating
  • Dust- and moisture-resistant design
  • Rounded nine-blade diaphragm for smoother bokeh

Along with the lens’ specs, it is also important to note that its widest focal length is 15mm, as opposed to the standard 16-35mm Canon has used for decades. At such focal lengths, a difference of a single millimeter should not be overlooked, as it will offer a significantly wider angle of view than a 16mm lens. Altogether, the 15-35mm f/2.8 looks like a respectable performer that should suit a variety of genres ranging from landscapes to events well. Check out the video above for Abbott’s full thoughts.
