The new Canon RF 24-105mm F4-7. 1 IS STM is a lightweight, compact and versatile zoom lens that's the perfect partner for the EOS RP mirrorless camera.
This versatile and affordable zoom boasts 5-stops of Image Stabilization, an STM motor that's well-suited to both stills and video, and is smaller and lighter than the EF version.
It also features a brand new 0. 5x “Centre focus macro” mode, which offers 13cm macro mode when using Manual Focus at the 24mm focal length. Only the centre-point is in perfect focus and there will be some vignetting, but this new mode opens up the world of macro shooting.
It weighs in at just 880g combined with the EOS RP camera with battery and memory card fitted, making it an ideal entry-level kit choice.
