    Introducing the next travel companion for photographers, Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the sixth lens in the RF family, the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM telephoto zoom lens. As the first telephoto zoom lens designed for EOS R and EOS RP full-frame mirrorless cameras, the compact and lightweight 10x zoom RF 24-240mm provides photographers high-quality images and video capture at a budget-friendly price point.

    “Providing photographers of all skill levels with the invaluable tools to help capture and create the images they desire has been and will continue to be a paramount goal for Canon,” said Kazuto Ogawa, president and chief operating officer, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The new RF 24-240mm is an excellent option as an all-around travel lens that provides attractive features for a wide variety of image capture.”

    The RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM lens is equipped with Nano USM, providing users quick, high-speed and precision auto focus (AF) when shooting video and capturing still images. With the powerful Nano USM, this lens allows photographers and videographers full time manual focusing making possible the fine tuning and adjusting of focus while in AF mode. This is the first Canon lens designed for full-frame cameras to feature Dynamic IS and utilizes a CIPA-standard, five-stop image stabilization system. The five-stop IS allows photographers to capture images and record videos with minimal shake, even during nighttime sightseeing or in dimly lit indoor events, without the need of a tripod.

    When paired with the recently announced EOS RP full-frame mirrorless camera, the compact and lightweight portability of the RF 24-240mm rivals that of a Canon APS-C camera system with a comparable EF-S lens. The RF 24-240mm and EOS RP kitted together are only slightly heavier and longer than the EOS Rebel T7i when it is kitted with the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. The diminished form factor of the new lens and EOS RP together, as compared to other full-frame mirrorless camera systems using a similar focal-length telephoto zoom lens, make the lens and camera the ideal kit for travelers who are constantly on the go.

    Additional features of the Canon RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM include:

    • Minimum focusing distance of 1.64 feet/0.50 meters at wide angle and 2.56 feet/0.78 meters at telephoto
    • Maximum magnification of 0.26x at telephoto
    • Approximate weight of 750 grams/26.4 ounces
    • Customizable control ring that allows photographers to adjust exposure compensation, shutter speed, aperture or ISO
    • Customizable control ring that allows photographers to adjust exposure compensation, shutter speed, aperture or ISO
    • 21 lens elements in 15 groups including one Aspheric and Two UD Lens
    • 12-pin communication system

    Pricing and Availability

    The Canon RF 24-240mm F4-6.3mm IS USM lens is scheduled to be available September 2019 for an estimated retail price of $899.99*. In addition, Canon will offer a new EOS RP kit that includes the RF-24-240mm for an estimated retail price of $2199.00*. For additional information, please visit,

    Canon Europe, world leader in lens manufacturing, today expands its RF lens range with the launch of the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM – its newest lens for creative enthusiasts starting out on their journey with the EOS R System. Endorsed by renowned Canon Ambassador and action photographer Richard Walch, the compact lens offers huge creative scope with its 24-240mm 10x zoom range that captures exceptional full-frame images. Aimed at those motivated by expressing creativity through photography, particularly for the genre of travel, this lens is highly versatile – capturing everything from wide-angle shots to telephoto close ups in stunning quality.

    Following the development announcement of six RF lenses in February and the recently launched RF 85mm F1.2L USM, the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM is the second lens to be introduced by Canon in 2019 and has the highest zoom in the range. All six RF lenses will offer incredible quality and versatility for those looking to get the perfect shot with the EOS R System.

    Impressive and affordable full-frame zoom

    At 750g, the compact and portable RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM has an incredible weight to focal length coverage ratio. With its 10x zoom, variety of focal lengths and variable f/4-6.3 aperture, this lens is the ideal choice for creative, enthusiast photographers looking to achieve the highest versatility possible from the EOS RP camera and RF lens system. Giving photographers expanded scope for creativity, the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM’s 24mm wide angle focal length is ideal for group photos, landscape and cityscape photography; while the lens’s 240mm telephoto length is ideal for photographing mid-distance sports, events, wildlife and people. With its diamond knurled focus/control ring and large, lockable zoom ring with 100° rotation, the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM gives users immediate, precise control to capture the beautiful and interesting things they see with the best shot possible. The large diameter and short back focus of the RF mount allows for the lens to be designed with large rear elements, maximising image quality and therefore allowing photographers to express their height of creativity.

    Exceptional image quality with AF and stabilization

    With its five-stop image stabilisation the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM is the first full-frame lens with Dynamic IS, providing photographers with incredible stability when hand-held – even at very low shutter speeds – allowing photographers to push their creative boundaries. This key feature allows for the capturing of crystal-clear shots in low light and stable movies – the latter which has a 1/8 stop aperture control – perfect for those spontaneous photo and video opportunities whilst on the move. With Nano USM autofocus, which combines the benefits of STM and ring USM, across 88 per cent horizontal by 100 per cent vertical of the frame with Dual Pixel CMOS AF – the lens is fast and quiet and smooth in movie, allowing photographers to achieve quality footage.

    Deluxe look and feel, perfectly matching the EOS R System

    A great pairing with Canon’s lightest full frame mirrorless camera – the EOS RP - the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM gives creative enthusiasts the full benefits of the EOS R System with a native lens. The EOS R System, launched in September 2018, delivers unrivalled optical excellence, the world’s fastest autofocus and faster communication between camera and lens, thanks to the newly designed RF mount. Fast performance, superb ergonomics and superior, uncompromising, image quality remain at the heart of the EOS R System and this lens is no different.

    Canon Ambassador and action / sports photographer Richard Walch recently completed a 12-day voyage along the coast of Norway from Bergen to Kirkenes. In his kit bag was a RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM.

    On using the lens, Walch said: “I wanted to take this lens on a journey to test its true ability. My mission was to find the counter perspective; land to water and water to land. With its great versatility I wanted this lens for those spur-of-the-moment captures along my travels. Norway’s beauty is astounding – and when you find yourself in a place of greatness such as this you feel compelled to do the landscape justice with outstanding imagery. This lens is the perfect travel lens and an ideal choice for photographers entering the world of the EOS R System – it is compact and light, yet does not compromise on quality. A great choice if you want an all-in-one lens. For those looking to push their creative boundaries on the go – I’d highly recommend the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM.”
