Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM Lens

The RF 35mm f/1.8 Macro IS STM Lens is compact, lightweight and easy to carry. It offers amazing versatility with a focal length of 35mm in a wide-angle macro lens. The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM Lens has a 0.5x magnification ratio and a close focusing distance of 0.56 ft., which is excellent for macro photography. The 35mm lens is a wide angle macro lens employing the new standard RF mount for the Canon EOS R mirrorless system. An STM (stepping motor) provides fast and quiet AF to keep your subjects in frame. Finally, it offers 5.0-stop Optical Image Stabilization, further enhancing its abilities in low-light situations and correcting unwanted shakes and blur.


The RF 35mm f/1.8 Macro lens is comprised of 11 lens elements in 9 groups. The rear elements capitalize on the short flange back of the RF system, with the large diameter contributing to the high optical performance and making RF lenses much smaller than their Canon EF counterparts. An aspheric element in the focusing group reduces aberrations during focusing. Super Spectra coating minimizes ghosting and flare for stunning clarity and image quality.

Optical Image Stabilization

The RF 35mm f/1.8 macro lens features 5.0-stop optical image stabilization technology that is designed to work in conjunction with your Canon EOS R camera. The 12 pin high-speed communication system processes data to your from your RF lenses to your Canon EOS R mirrorless camera faster than any other lens/camera combination.

Control Ring

All RF lenses incorporate a control ring on the lens barrel that can directly adjust numerous settings including shutter speed, aperture, exposure compensation and more. Located towards the front of the lens and effectively adding a third dial to the Canon EOS R camera’s main dial and quick control dial, the ring has a tactile, easily distinguished surface and features a clicking mechanism that provides tangible feedback for confident use while looking through the viewfinder.


The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 macro lens was built to handle the rigors of professional use. This lens was built with a rugged, refined, and precise construction so that you can intuitively concentrate on the subject at hand and achieve a higher level of image quality. The Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 Macro IS STM Lens is vibration shock resistant in the lens barrel to help maintain focus and settings. A dust and water resistant construction protects against difficult weather conditions while the Fluorine coating prevents dirt and dust from sticking.
