RF24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM

HK$4,280.00 HK$4,980.00

This compact and lightweight RF24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM weights merely 270g and is only 63.1mm long,  it is ideal for daily snapshots with its wide-angle and the f/1.8 large aperture. The lens features 1 UD lens to correct chromatic aberration and 1 PMo aspherical lens positioned close to the image plane for excellent correction of curvature of field. Its 0.5x maximum magnification and a minimum focusing distance of 0.14m allow user to get closer to the subject for taking macro photos with wide angle perspective. The lens offers up to 5-stop2 shake compensation during normal shooting, it also equipped with Hybrid IS to facilitate the macro photo shooting with 3-stop4 at 0.5x magnification.


Compatible cameras: EOS R series mirrorless cameras

Compact Fast 24mm Wide-angle Macro Lens

The compact RF24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM wide-angle macro lens weights merely 270g and is only 63.1mm long,  its 24mm wide-angle focal length is particularly suitable for snapshots from a more dynamic perspective. It also allows shooting in limited space with its wide angle of view.  RF24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM also offers 0.5x magnification, it is ideal for flowers, fashion accessories and food photography that expands the possibilities in image creation for both photographers and videographers. The lens makes an ideal combo with the EOS R series full-frame cameras for those seeking a lightweight walkaround camera for everyday snaps.

F1.8 Large Aperture

The lens’ f/1.8 large aperture, with a 9-blade circular aperture, allows users to create stunning portraits and close-up photos with shallow depth of field and beautiful background blur at ease. The bright large aperture also allows a faster shutter speed for easy capture of fast-moving subjects even in low-light environment. It makes this lens ideal for shooting portraits, snapshots and cityscape at nighttime with beautiful out-of-focus background.

0.5x Magnification with Impressive Bokeh

The RF24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM is capable of shooting at 0.5x maximum magnification with a minimum focusing distance of 0.14m. It allows users to reveal the tiny and intricate details of small subjects such as jewelry, handcrafts, flowers or food. Its f/1.8 large aperture also helps create impressive close-up images with soft bokeh.

High Image Quality

The RF24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM adopts a newly developed 11 elements in 9 groups optical design, incorporating 1 UD lens to correct chromatic aberration and 1 PMo aspherical lens positioned close to the image plane for excellent correction of curvature of field1. This lens also features a large-diameter lens element in the position closest to the focal plane by taking the advantage of the RF mount. As a result, it achieves corner-to-corner sharpness even at aperture fully open and reduces the size of the overall optical system.

PMo Aspherical lens

 

Since the lens provides 0.5x maximum magnification,  1 PMo aspherical lens is positioned close to the image plane for excellent correction of curvature of field commonly seen in close up shooting.  

Super Spectra Coating

 

Renowned Super Spectra Coating and optimized shapes of lens elements help to improve anti-ghosting and flare performance.


Quieter High Speed and Accurate AF

While RF24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM is equipped with a Gear-type STM, AF is quieter than before without lowering the AF speed. This is made possible by making the focusing lens lighter and using a lower gear ratio to reduce the STM motor rotation. The Gear-type STM, working in tandem with high-performance CPU and EOS R Series’ Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, provides high speed and smooth AF for still images and video shooting.


Superb Image Stabilization

The lens’ built-in optical image stabilizer offers 5-stop shake compensation2  and a stunning 6.5-stop shake compensation3 can be achieve with Coordinated Control IS when paired with EOS R-series camera featuring In-Body Image Stabilization.

Moreover, the lens also features Canon’s Hybrid IS, which corrects both angle-based and shift-based camera shake common in macro photography, providing up to 3-stop shake compensation4 at 0.5x magnification.

Control Ring

 

Incorporates the RF lens control ring to adjust assigned camera settings such as ISO speed,

shutter speed or aperture value directly from the lens.

 

The clicking sensation and sound of the control ring can be removed for silent control during photo shooting or video recording. This service is available at Canon Care Center (chargeable service).

Compatible with Electronic full-time MF

 

Lens is compatible with Electronic full-time MF5,   focus can be adjusted manually with focus ring anytime during ONE SHOT AF or SERVO AF.

Lens Hood EW-65B (Optional)

 

The optional petal-shape Lens Hood EW-65B further enhances flare resistance.


1 Multiple exposure shooting is not supported when using with EOS R5/R6/R/Ra/RP,  it is also not possible to shoot multiple exposures with another lens using images shot with this lens. The lens distortion correction on the camera is set to [Enable] automatically when in use.
2 CIPA Standard, Focal Length: 24mm, EOS R is used. In yaw/pitch direction.
3 CIPA Standard, Focal Length: 24mm, EOS R5 is used. In yaw/pitch direction.
4 Canon Standard. Based on a shutter speed of [1/focal length] seconds, said to be the limit for hand-held photography without image stabilization.
5 For EOS R series camera supporting electronic full-time manual focus. Please refer to camera’s instruction manual for details.
