The 135mm lens is one of the most favorite telephoto prime lenses for portrait lovers. No wonder Canon has now released the RF 135mm F1.8 L IS USM for EOS R full frame mirrorless users.
Fitur Canon RF 135mm F1.8 L IS USM
Like other Canon RF lenses, this lens also comes with large dimensions. Body length is about 130 mm. Meanwhile, its weight is in the range of 935 grams.
Its relatively heavy weight needs to be understood. This is because the lens design consists of 17 lens elements in 12 groups. Includes three Ultra-low Dispersion (UD) lens elements. To minimize the effects of blur and light reflection Canon added a layer of Air Sphere Coating. In addition, the front lens element is also added with a fluorine coating. That way it will be easier to clean if it is exposed to dust or dirt.
In the autofocus sector, the RF 135mm F1.8 L IS USM carries a Nano USM autofocus system whose performance is fast and quiet. As a telephoto lens, there is support for stabilizer features. This stabilizer feature can stabilize shooting with compensation of up to 5.5 stops that are in accordance with CIPA standards.
Price and availability
If interested you seem to need to be patient. The reason is, this lens will only be available at the end of January 2023. The price of the Canon RF 135mm F1.8 L IS USM is US $2099.
