Endowed with a lightweight and compact body, RF35mm f/1.8 MACRO IS STM is amazingly portable. Coupled with its wide angle of 35mm and maximum magnification of 0.5x, this lens is suitable for everyday snapshots and macro photography. Having a large aperture of f/1.8, allows good low-light capability. The image stabilisation of up to 5-stops, makes slower shutter speed and lower ISO possible for both stills and video.
RF35mm f/1.8 MACRO IS STM features an additional control ring on the barrel that could be customised to control exposure settings; shutter speed, aperture, ISO and exposure compensation, effectively providing better control especially while shooting through the Electronic View Finder. The control ring has a tactile, easily distinguished surface and features a clicking mechanism that provides tangible feedback during adjustment.
*For those who prefers a silent control ring during photography or video recording, the clicking sensation and sound of the control ring can be removed at Canon authorised service centre (chargeable). Available from October 2018.
