The 70-200 is a staple in the photography and video industry and Canon has always been at the top of the game. The RF 70-200 f/2.8L pushes new boundaries in the mirrorless era as it is the smallest, lightest and closest focusing 70-200 f/2.8 lens from any manufacturer.
The biggest thing that stands out with this lens is its size. It is tiny compared to the EF equivalent coming in at only 146mm long at it’s 70mm focal length (it does get longer as you zoom through the range to 200mm).
Another advance from the EF version that makes this lens an appealing option is the close focus - this lens has a minimum focus distance of 0.7m compared to 1.2m for the EF version.
It has all the bells and whistles that Canon is known for such as an Air Sphere coating to suppress flares and ghosting, nano USM autofocus motors for near silent autofocus operation and image stabilisation for reduced motion blur. This lens also features a third stabilisation mode that its EF siblings don’t have, which only activates the image stabiliser during the exposure.
