2.47 in. Length, Approx. 10.8 oz. Weight

At just 2.47 inches long and approx. 10.8 oz., the RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM makes for a lightweight and comfortable, all-day lens. It's ideal for capturing a variety of subjects and is an excellent complement to the EOS R camera.

Maximum Magnification Ratio of 0.5x

With its maximum magnification ratio of 0.5x, the RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM is remarkably versatile in operation. Whether shooting landscapes, the details of a painting or anything in between, the RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM is both an able walk-around lens and a highly effective lens for macro photography.

Minimum Focusing Distance of 0.56 ft./0.17m.

A close focusing distance of 0.56 ft./0.17m opens up a world of possibilities for creative expression. Whether capturing flowers, insects or closing in on the details of an object, the RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM lens provides incredible versatility. Combined with 5 stops* of Image Stabilization, the RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM offers admirable performance whether you're shooting handheld or on a tripod.

Control Ring for Direct Setting Changes.

The RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM 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.

Optical Image Stabilization at up to 5 Stops* of Shake Correction.

The RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM lens is designed to work in conjunction with the EOS R camera, with both the camera and the lens sharing data to dramatically reduce camera-shake blur, regardless of the situation, whether shooting video or stills. With up to 5 stops* of stabilization, it delivers impressively clear results. *Based on CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) standards. Testing performed at a focal length of 35mm using the EOS R camera.

High-speed Communication with the Camera

Designed to quickly process data, the RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM features a 12 pin communication system that is the fastest yet for a Canon lens/camera combination. This accelerates AF, Image Stabilization, the Digital Lens Optimizer and more, helping to simplify complex operations and provide a quick and reliable user experience.

Lens Information Display

Another helpful feature, the EOS R camera can display lens information right in the viewfinder, making it easy to confirm the lens's focal length without looking away from the subject at hand.

In-camera Digital Lens Optimizer

The EOS R system's 12 pin communication system enables the Digital Lens Optimizer, which works in-camera to combat aberrations and image deterioration, especially in the edges of the image frame when shooting at a large aperture. Data from the RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM lens is transferred automatically to the camera body, facilitating near immediate correction for clear, detailed images.

Compatible with Canon's Macro Twin Lites and Macro Ring Lites.

For brilliant close-up photography, the RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STM is compatible with Canon's Macro range of Speedlite flashes, including Macro Twin Lites and Macro Ring Lites, for studio-quality, controlled close-up lighting in various situations.
