Canon Europe expands its RF lens range with the launch of the new RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM. This newest lens, according to Canon, was designed and created for creative enthusiasts beginning their photography/videography journey with the EOS R system. The new lens is endorsed by Richard Walch, action photographer and Canon Ambassador. The lens offers creative scope with its 24-240mm 10x zoom range that is said to capture “exceptional full-frame images.” The lens is said to capture a vast array of shots- from wide-angle shots to telephoto close-ups.

The RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM is the second lens to be released by Canon in 2019 and will have the highest zoom range. The RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM, according to Canon, is the first full-frame lens with Dynamic IS which will provide photographers with speed and stability when holding the camera by hand. The lens is said to be ideal for landscape and cityscape photography, as well as group photos. The 240mm telephoto length is aimed at photographing mid-distance sports, wildlife, people and events. The EOS R system was launched in 2018 and, according to Canon, delivers quality performance.

Canon ambassador and action/sports photographer Richard Walchrecently completer a 12-day voyage that took place along the coast of Norway from Bergen to Kirkenes. He carried an RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM in his kit bag.

“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,” Walch said about his experience with the RF 24-240mm F4-6.3 IS USM.”
