Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro Lens Summary

The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 macro has a fast, bright aperture and offers a naturally slightly wide-angle prime perspective. This makes it a great option for street, travel and documentary photography, while also being an excellent performer in low light. 35mm is a flexible focal width which can also be used for landscapes, wider portraits and environmental shots. Read some compelling reasons why to could choose a 35mm lens here in our blog.

The RF 35mm f/1.8 macro also allows you to get in close to capture fine details at half life-size macro magnifications (1:2) and features a customisable Lens Control Ring, a useful feature found with many RF lenses. With just a 17cm close-focus distance users can create ultra close-up compositions with engaging subjects and smooth out of focus backgrounds thanks to the 9-bladed aperture.

With sharp, quiet focusing the STM Stepping Motor technology in the RF 50mm f/1.8 focuses very smoothly and in virtual-silence, making this lens ideal for stills and video.

Looking to sell your Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro Lens?

Our Verdict

With the RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro Lens, Canon have created a lens that has a naturally wide angle perspective making it perfect for things like street, travel and documentary photography or videography. Whilst we have other RF options covering 35mm such as the budget friendly RF 24-105mm lens and more expensive RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM, neither provide the portability nor macro capabilities of this prime option.

The fast f/1.8 aperture gives you a lot of creative power when it comes to depth of field, while the close focusing distance of just 0.17m allows you to get in nice and close to your subjects, opening up all the fine details.

For those shooting moving subjects and videos, the silent STM autofocusing is smooth and steady, ideal for natural focus transitions. Cameras such as the EOS R6 also include body stabilisation making for the perfect match with this RF 35mm lens which includes 5 stops of optical stabilisation. Any Canon mirrorless shooters interested in a slightly wide angle prime, with added versatile functionality have found the perfect native option from Canon with this lens.
