Three new Canon RF lenses and R3 announcement

Three new Canon RF lenses and R3 announcement

[11:08 wed,14.April 2021   by ]    

Canon today announced three new RF lenses (100, 400 and 600mm) as well as the development of the upcoming R3 camera.

The two new RF 400mm F2.8 L IS USM and RF 600mm F4 L IS USM super-telephoto lenses are based on the popular EF 400mm f/2.8 L IS III USM and 600mm f/4 L III USM super-telephoto lenses, and are the first RF models to feature dual drive, enabling faster focusing than ever before. Canon promises reliably sharp image sequences even at continuous shooting rates of 30 frames per second.

Both lenses offer 1/8-stop aperture adjustment for video recording and advanced optical IS. The latter function is made possible by the communication system of the RF bayonet and is said to be able to compensate up to 5.5 exposure stops.


Both lenses also feature three manual focus speeds, allowing precise control and full manual focus. In addition, two focus settings can be stored in advance. This saves time when you need to react quickly and enables pull-focus effects when shooting video, for example. The focus ring can also be used as a lens control ring on some EOS R series models.

The RF 100mm F2.8 L MACRO IS USM features an above-average magnification ratio of 1.4:1. This is made possible by the internal focusing of the lens and the short flange focal length. Compared to the EF version, there is an adjustable lens ring to control spherical aberration.


The RF 100mm F2.8 L MACRO IS USM also features an optical image stabiliser for up to five stops of exposure, or coordinated IS for up to eight stops of exposure (to CIPA standards) when used with an EOS R5 or an EOS R6. Dual Nano USM AF is said to provide smooth, accurate and fast autofocus that operates almost silently while suppressing so-called focus breathing.

The RF 100mm F2.8 L MACRO IS USM is to be available from the end of July 2021 for €1,549.00. The super telephoto lenses are to follow in August 2021. Namely for 12,999 euros (400mm) and 13,999 euros (600mm).

Since the two super-teles literally smell of professional sports photography, Canon has simultaneously announced the development of a new professional "sports DSLM" with RF mount. The R3 will feature a new Eye Control function that will allow the AF point to be controlled with the eye on the viewfinder. Special functions for filmmakers were not communicated, but a continuous shooting function with up to 30 fps was mentioned, which also underlines the "sporty" character of this model.


Canon is only disclosing the following information about the EOS R3:

-New Canon-developed Stacked BSI CMOS sensor.
-Up to 30 fps with AF/AE tracking
-Eye Control function
-Detection of eyes, head and body on the subject
-Dual PixelPixel im Glossar erklärt CMOS AF
-Dust and splash protection like the Canon EOS-1 series

The release date is still open, as is the price.
