This is one of Canon’s first RF mount lenses, designed from the ground up to be paired with Canon’s new EOS R System. The first camera belonging to this system is the EOS R, Canon’s first full frame mirrorless camera. The Canon RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM is a perfect lens for great all-round performance and is perfect for landscapes, portraits, travel and much more besides.
Canon’s new RF mount has enabled their engineers to place the rear element of lenses closer to the camera’s sensor. This means they can produce lenses that don’t have to bend light as far and therefore can produce lenses with even better optical qualities, particularly towards the edge of the frame. The mount’s new 12 pin connection offers faster and more complex communication between the lens and the body.
It has a constant bright f/4 aperture, available throughout its range. The new RF mount has enabled the optical quality of this lens to surpass its EF mount equivalent, yet it is more compact and lighter.
This is the first lens with Canon’s new Nano USM which provides smooth, high speed, accurate and nearly silent operation while still providing full time manual focus override.

The new RF mount allows the camera and lens to share data, improving the image stabilisation performance. The RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM can provide up to 5 stops of image stabilization.
Customisable Control Ring
Each of Canon’s RF lenses comes equipped with a new customisable control ring. The ring can provide control over aperture, shutter speed, ISO or exposure compensation. It is customisable from the camera. The control ring is textured differently, so is easily identified by touch.
Canon L Quality
As you’d expect from canon’s professional line of lenses, the quality of this 50mm F/1.2 lens is excellent. It is weighty and beautifully engineered, built for the demands of professional use. It is dust, water and vibration shock resistant. Both exposed elements have a fluorine coating to help repel dust, moisture and oil.
