Setting new standards – a fast, versatile, ultra high-quality zoom for the Canon EOS R System.

Redefining what can be expected of a standard zoom lens, the RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM features a fast f/2 aperture and delivers new levels of image quality.

Redefine what you expect from a standard zoom lens

The performance of the RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM is nothing short of extraordinary, thanks to the Canon RF mount, which allows previously impossible optical designs to now be realised. The lens uses four aspherical elements, a pair of Ultra low Dispersion (UD) elements and a Super UD element to deliver the optical quality normally expected of a prime lens. It’s versatile too, with a zoom range that will find uses in just about every area of photography.

Super-fast f/2 maximum aperture for extra creative power

An f/2 maximum aperture gives photographers huge control over depth of field – perfect for portrait and wedding photographers looking to isolate a pin-sharp subject against a smooth out-of-focus background. Such a large aperture also allows for faster shutter speeds when shooting in low-light, which can freeze both subject movement and camera shake.

Smooth, near-silent autofocusing, with Canon’s USM technology

The RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM borrows the ring-type USM technology from Canon’s super-telephoto lenses in order to move its large glass elements quickly and in near silence. In combination with the fast data transfer allowed by the RF mount, this technology lets photographers focus fast. And tracking moving subjects with ease.

Smart controls and intuitive ergonomics for a natural shooting experience

A customisable Control Ring on the lens’s barrel lets photographers adjust settings quickly and easily without taking their eye away from the camera. This tactile, intuitive device can be programmed to perform various functions such as aperture, shutter speed and ISO adjustment, and exposure compensation.

Legendary Canon L-Series pedigree inspires confidence

As an L-Series lens, the RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM is built to exacting standards and designed to withstand the rigors of professional use. Plus, it’s sealed against dust and moisture, so bad weather and harsh conditions won’t interrupt your creativity.

Product Reviews

Resolution, Gorgeous image quality
Photography BLOG

There's no getting away from the fact that the new Canon RF 28-70mm f/2 L USM lens is very big, heavy and expensive, but there's also no getting away from the fact that it's extremely well-built, fast in terms of the maximum aperture, and capable of delivering superlative image quality.


Although it encompasses a zoom range suited to general purpose photography, the RF 28-70mm f/2L USM lens is most suitable for wedding and event photographers where its fast maximum aperture makes it more versatile than smaller, slower lenses.

PC Magazine

The Canon RF 28-70mm F2 L USM is a one-of-a-kind zoom lens, combining an aperture typically reserved for primes and a 2.5x zoom range, without sacrificing image quality.

Camera Labs

The Canon RF 28-70mm f2L USM is a general-purpose zoom for Canon’s EOS R full-frame mirrorless system boasting an industry-leading f2 focal ratio. It may miss out on the wider 24mm coverage of typical 24-70mm f2.8 zooms, but uniquely boasts an extra stop of aperture.

The Digital Picture

The Canon RF 28-70mm F2 L USM Lens is a large, heavy, and expensive lens that is awesome. Garnering a world's first on its credit list, this lens brings the f/2 aperture to the extremely useful standard zoom lens.

Quite a handful, this lens proves that mirrorless isn’t all about downsizing...

wow this lens takes detail I did not the feel of this lens it is heavy but you got to put the glass in to get the detail out if you like quality you will not be disappointed I have only had it a short time but it's staying on the camera a lot will be shooting a lot with this lens when they...


I used primes, but this lens has substitued my all 1.8 and f2 primes(35,50,85) and also get 28 mm. Its wort the money. If i compare tha value of 28-70 vs rf 24-70, the 28-70 should be more expensive:).

Castle Cameras

An absolutely stunning lens which make a perfect partner with the Canon R5 as it has ICS. For me it replaces 3 primes.

I bought this lens just before i went on holidays and i had 3 shoots arranged while abroad so i was delighted to get it the day before i went. The lens is a seriously solid build and though not the lightest in the world still sits well on my R5 body.


Have sold my lens collection and bought the RF F2 in February. So instead of carrying body and 24-105 + 35 1.8 + 85 1.8, I carry exactly one lens and I am happier. I live in Northern Europe, low light is an issue even during most daylight hours, let alone indoors.


I bought this to as my standard zoom for my new R5 which has built in image stabilisation. The large aperture thought the zoom range gives excellent bokeh. For me this lens replaces several primes, which actually makes it good value.

I bought this beast a couple months ago and I haven’t had to use any of my primes. From weddings to products and portraits, it’s simply the best!


This lens provides the best portraits, it provides the smoothest backgrounds and really put the pulls the subject out. Its a bit on the heavy side but worth every image it helps me create. IS would be nice though, however it is fast enough for this not to matter to much.
