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

The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro Lens is a versatile full-frame wide angle lens for Canon mirrorless cameras, which is perfectly suited to portraits and street photography, as well as close-up macro photography.

With a weight of just 305g this is an extremely compact and portable mirrorless RF lens, which is able to capture detail and sharpness even at low shutter speeds thanks to image stabilisation (IS). If you enjoy filming the RF 35mm f/1.8 delivers silent STM autofocusing and natural focus transition with smooth and steady results.

A bright maximum f/1.8 aperture is ideal for low light and even night photography, and the lens included a 9-bladed aperture, which contributes to rounded bokeh and smooth background blur in the image. When capturing portraits and other subject photography these help to show off your subject and eliminate background distractions.

Its wide field of view provides the opportunity to capture close-up work with more of the subject background in the frame, as apposed to the Canon RF 100mm F2.8 L Macro IS USM Lens, which offers a much tighter field of view. To illuminate these types of environmental macro shots, especially when shooting at a narrow aperture you can add a macro ring light such as the Canon Macrolite Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX II.
