wide-angle lensWIDE-ANGLE LENSHas a short focal length, hence a field covering a wide angle, ideal for architectural, interior and landscape photography where the photographer may be unable to move further away from the scene to photograph it. Wide-angle lenses come in both fixed-focal length and zoom lens varieties. that delivers a natural perspective

The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 MacroMACROProducing photographs that render extreme close-ups of extremely small subjects like insects, hence its popularity among nature photographers. It requires using a macro lens with a large reproduction (magnification) ratio of at least 1:1, which renders a subject larger than life size. Macro lenses are capable of focussing at extremely short distances (some as little as a few centimetres), allowing the photographer to get very close to the subject. IS STM Lens for Canon EOS R users is a versatile high-quality 35mm lens that’s ideal for street, travel and close-up photography.


A great lens for...

  • Travel photography: The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM is a great wide-angle lens for portraiture and street photography, capturing detail and sharpness even at low shutter speedSHUTTER SPEEDAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Shutter speed is the length of time that a single frame is exposed for, more specifically how fast the shutter opens and closes to permit light entering the lens, to reach the sensor. A slow shutter speed means a longer exposure time useful for motion blur like the silky look of flowing water, whereas a fast shutter speed means a shorter exposure time useful for freezing the appearance of motion in images like a hummingbird in flight. It is measured in seconds starting at 1 second and halving our doubling in time. For example: 1/2s, 1/4s and 1/8s are all fractions of a second with 1/2s being the longest exposure time, 1/4s half of that and 1/8s another half etc.s. A fast f/1.8 maximum apertureAPERTUREAperture, shutter speed and ISO form what is known as the exposure triangle in photography. Aperture refers to an opening inside the lens, similar to the iris of your eye, that changes in diameter to control the amount of light that enters a camera. Aperture is expressed in f-stops: the lower the number, the larger the aperture, e.g. f/1.4 is larger than f/8. A larger (or wider) aperture allows more light to pass through the lens to the sensor (film) as a picture is taken, particularly useful in low-light conditions. A larger aperture also produces a shallower depth-of-field, and thus more background blur. lets you shoot authentic ambience, even when light levels are low.
  • Close-up work: The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM delivers a macro magnification of up to 1:2 adding to the versatility of this extraordinary lens. This makes it easy to capture intricate details and textures in your subjects.
  • Landscape photography: The image quality delivered by this prime lensPRIME LENSA photographic lens used as an (1) alternative, fixed focal length alternative to a zoom lens or, (2) more traditionally, as the primary lens in a combination lens system. In the first sense, a prime lens is known for having a larger maximum aperture and consequently offers greater shutter speeds, having advanced optics and weighing less than zoom lenses, albeit less flexible, because of their simpler construction with less moving parts. In the second sense, a prime lens refers to the primary lens when paired with other optical devices. A prime lens's focal length is fixed and the photographer is required to move closer or further to achieve the correct image composition. makes it a great choice for anyone shooting landscapes or producing large-size fine-art prints for exhibition. Sharpness and fine detail is superb right across the frame.


A smart design that empowers creativity

The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM is portable, lightweight and easy to use. Adjust settings with a customisable Lens Control Ring, and see information like focusing distance clearly in the viewfinder when shooting.


Ideal for filmmaking

Combination IS makes use of both the lens’s optical Image Stabiliser and your camera’s 5-axis electronic IS for footage that’s supremely steady – even if it’s shot while walking. Silent STM autofocusing is smooth and steady, for natural focus transitions.


A master in low light

A f/1.8 wide aperture is complemented by powerful Dual Sensing IS technology, which lets photographers shoot without blur from camera shake thanks to 5-stops of image stabilisation.


A new chapter in image quality

The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM employs an advanced optical design, including Super Spectra Coating. The RF Mount lens mount places the lens closer to the sensor for stunning clarity and sharpness.
