Ready for virtually any scenario, the Canon RF 24–105mm F4 L IS USM lens pairs with the EOS R system for all-around impressive performance that’s ideal for landscapes, portraits, travel and more. With its large, 54mm diameter, L series optics, a bright f/4 maximum aperture and compact size, the RF 24–105mm F4 L IS USM delivers gorgeous, richly detailed photos and video throughout its zoom range, time after time. It’s the first L-series lens to feature Canon’s NANO USM for smooth, fast and nearly silent AF, and it offers amazing 5-stop* Image Stabilization for powerful performance while handheld and in low light. From wide angle to telephoto, on a hike, in the studio and anywhere in between, the RF 24–105mm F4 L IS USM delivers the compact design, excellent optics, and advanced features demanding imagemakers call for.
Compact and Lightweight
A dramatically compact 24-105mm f/4 lens, the RF 24–105mm F4 L IS USM packs a broad zoom range and a bright maximum aperture into a well-balanced, refined design that balances comfortably on the EOS R camera’s body.
54mm Large Diameter and Short Back Focus
The RF mount on the EOS R camera enables large diameter elements throughout the lens, including the rearmost element. This large diameter, coupled with the camera’s short back focus (the distance from the back edge of the lens to the surface of the image sensor), helps increase the flexibility of optical design, resulting in incredible brightness and image quality and contributing to the RF 24–105mm F4 L IS USM’s conveniently compact size without compromising performance.
Ideal Zoom Range for All-day Photography
With a zoom range encompassing wide angle, normal and telephoto, the RF 24–105mm F4 L IS USM excels in a variety of shooting situations, offering amazing versatility with the turn of a zoom ring. For example, with the RF 24–105mm F4 L IS USM, the EOS R camera can go from shooting landscapes to interiors and portraits without a single lens change. In countless situations where the light and subject are constantly changing, the RF 24–105mm F4 L IS USM lens is ready to go.
Bright, Constant f/4 Zoom Lens.
The RF 24–105mm F4 L IS USM lens features 3 aspheric and 1 UD lens element to help correct aberrations, distortion and astigmatism, delivering sharp and dynamic images with excellent detail and contrast across the image frame and throughout the zoom range. Plus, it has a 9-blade circular aperture for beautiful, soft backgrounds.
High-speed Autofocus with NANO USM for Still Shooting
The RF 24–105mm F4 L IS USM uses Canon’s NANO USM system for the first time in an L series lens. NANO USM combines conventional ring USM and STM (lead-screw type) AF, and features a diminutive chip-shaped ultrasonic motor that’s engineered to help deliver high-speed, smooth, precise and near-silent operation, plus full time manual focus (when using One-shot AF).
Smooth and Quiet Autofocus for Video Recording
Another benefit of NANO USM is that it’s nearly silent. This means smooth and silent AF transitions that are ideal for video recording.
Control Ring for Direct Setting Changes.
The RF 24–105mm F4 L IS USM lens incorporates a control ring on the lens barrel that can directly adjust numerous settings including shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation and more. Located towards the front of the lens and effectively adding a third dial to the EOS R camera’s main dial and quick control dial, the control ring has a tactile, easily distinguished surface and features a clicking mechanism that provides tangible feedback for confident use while looking through the viewfinder. For photographers and moviemakers who would prefer a silent control ring, the clicking mechanism can be removed by a Canon service provider for a fee.
