• Power Zoom Adapters PZ-E2 and PZ-E2B – for smooth, professional operation of the RF 24-105mm F2.8L IS USM Z
• RF-S 10-18mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM – a compact and lightweight ultra-wide zoom lens

RF 24-105mm F2.8L IS USM Z
The Canon RF 24-105mm F2.8L IS USM Z is designed to meet the increased demand within the professional creator community for hybrid shoots with a combination of photo and video content.
This all-in-one lens actually functions as a multiple lens. Boasting versatile features from broadcast, cinema and standard RF lenses, it is the first RF zoom lens to combine a dedicated iris/aperture ring with servo functionality via optional power zoom adapters.
The RF 24-105mm F2.8L IS USM Z combines the convenience and reach of the RF 24-105mm F4L IS USM lens with the creative possibilities and low-light power of the RF 24-70mm F2.8L IS USM. This means you no longer have to choose between these two strengths when looking for the perfect shot. The lens offers 5.5 stops of optical image stabilization for strong image quality (up to 8 stops in combination with on-camera image stabilization).
This provides extra stability when filming hand-held and high image quality when recording during festive situations, such as weddings or events. The smooth iris ring (for video) provides precise control when changing exposure. A diaphragm with 11 blades provides a beautiful bokeh.
This professional lens with extensive options is therefore suitable for capturing news items, documentaries, weddings, events, business activities and content for social media.
The functions of the RF 24-105mm F2.8L IS USM Z lens can be further expanded with the recently introduced power zoom adapters, providing greater flexibility for filmmakers.
RF-S 10-18mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM
The Canon RF-S 10-18mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM is specially designed for the Canon EOS R System cameras with APS-C sensor. With its focal range of 10-18mm, this ultra-wide-angle lens is ideal for enthusiasts of travel, landscapes, cityscapes and vlogging. The lens offers up to 4-stops of optical image stabilization and 6-stops in combination with in-body image stabilization.
This gives photographers and video users the ability to shoot handheld with confidence, even in low light. Combined with Movie Digital IS, the lens is perfect for content creators who want to shoot wide handheld shots and capture more in the frame.
Weighing 150 grams, this small and light lens is the perfect travel companion. Creators no longer have to make compromises, as this lens is optimal for both stills and video, and for effortlessly capturing ultra-wide-angle shots.
RF 200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM
The Canon RF 200-800mm F6.3-9 IS USM is a full-frame super telephoto zoom lens suitable for nature and sports photography. With a maximum focal length of 800mm, compared to a maximum of 600mm on other lenses currently on the market, this is a telephoto zoom lens with the longest reach for the RF mount.
The lens is developed with water and dust seals to withstand challenging conditions. In addition, the lens is ideal for taking the perfect shot from any position.
The 5.5-stop image stabilization (up to 7.5-stops when used with EOS R cameras with in-body image stabilization4), fast autofocus, focal range and optical construction deliver high-quality images and videos, while the zoom has the ability to image even small subjects.
It makes the lens the ideal choice for enthusiasts who want to push the boundaries of nature and sports photography and capture what was previously not possible.
