RF24-105mm f/2.8L IS USM Z

Versatile Large Aperture Standard Zoom

The RF24-105mm f/2.8 L IS USM Z is the first RF lens to feature iris control, giving filmmakers precise control over their creative expression. With a small f/stop of f/2.8 and 11-blade circular aperture, this lens allows you to achieve that coveted cinematic out-of-focus effect. But that's not all – the lens also boasts up to 8 stops of image stabilisation, making handheld shots as steady as if they were taken on a tripod.

The dual Nano USM delivers fast, accurate and quiet AF that is perfect for video recording.

  • Large f/2.8 Aperture & Iris Control
  • Image Stabilisation of Up to 8 Stops
  • Dual Nano USM & Up to 0.29x Magnification

0.29x Magnification

The RF24-105mm f/2.8L IS USM Z has a short minimum focusing distance of 0.45m (at 105mm) that allows you to get some really amazing close-up shots with magnification of up to 0.29x. 

Beautiful Bokeh

The f/2.8 large aperture produces beautiful bokeh. It also enables a faster shutter speed or lower ISO for low-light conditions. In addition, its unique 11-blade circular aperture creates an amazingly exquisite out-of-focus effect.

Image Stabilisation

The RF24-105mm f/2.8L IS USM Z  provides up to 5.5 stops of image stabilisation with its in-built Optical Image Stabilizer.

The lens supports Coordinated Control IS which provides up to 8 stops of image stabilisation when used with compatible cameras that have In-Body Image Stabilizer. This makes it ideal for handheld low-light shots, which typically calls for a tripod.

Smooth Video Recording

With the powerful coordinated stabilisation between the lens's Optical Image Stabilizer and In-Body Image Stabilizer of compatible cameras, get smooth natural-looking video recording even while walking.

Focus Breathing Correction

When recording videos, a typical phenomenon that occurs is a 'pulsing effect' in the footage whereby the camera's angle of view changes slightly during focus racking. The RF24-105mm f/2.8L IS USM Z addresses this by compensating for the change in field of view when the focus point is changed, resulting in seamless video recording.

Three IS Modes

Introduced for the first time on a standard zoom lens, the RF24-105mm f/2.8L IS USM Z has 3 selectable IS modes:

  • IS Mode 1 for stationary subjects
  • IS Mode 2 for panning
  • IS Mode 3 for subjects with unpredictable movement

Image Quality

With two Nano USMs, the lens focuses very quickly and silently, making it suitable even for movie recording.
When combined with the newly improved floating focus system, the lens is able to suppress focus fluctuation when zooming to deliver outstanding image quality throughout the focusing range.

Shot on EOS R5, 85mm, f/4, 1/6s ISO100

The RF24-105mm f/2.8L IS USM Z delivers superior image quality throughout the image, including the edges, with its innovative design and optical configuration made possible by the RF mount.

Aspherical Lenses

The RF24-105mm f/2.8L IS USM Z is the first to use replica aspheric lens with glass-molded (GMo) aspherical lenses to achieve superior image quality. The replica aspheric lens delivers superior surface precision while allowing for more design possibilities, which contributes to keeping the lens small. 

UD Lenses

This lens uses four single Ultra-Low Dispersion (UD) lens elements with low refraction and low dispersion, reducing axial and magnetic chromatic aberrations to deliver higher image quality.

Air Sphere Coating (ASC)

Air Sphere Coating suppresses ghosting and reduces flare from your images through the innovative use of an anti-reflection technology that forms an ultra-low-refractive index layer on the elements within the lens.


Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E2

The RF24-105mm f/2.8L IS USM Z embodies the essence of both videography and photography. The lens has been engineered to accommodate the Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E2 which allows the user to achieve precise zoom speed adjustments and smooth zooming.

You can attach or remove the Power Zoom Adapter PZ-E2 with simple tool, making it convenient in the field

Iris Control

This lens is the first among RF lenses to have an iris ring for controlling aperture physically on the lens. Similar to a cinema lens, the user can enjoy light, smooth torque and intuitive control over aperture and exposure adjustment.

Non-Extending Zoom

The RF24-105mm f/2.8L IS USM Z adapts a fixed length design that keeps its centre of gravity balanced. This will benefit those who are looking to use this for video recording with accessories such as gimbal.

Easy Detachable Tripod Mount

This new tripod mount is designed to be attached and detached without needing a unique tool, providing more convenience for those who may switch between shooting styles. 

Lens Function Buttons

Two customisable Lens Function buttons on the body of the lens allow you to instantly access various functions related to AF, exposure, connectivity, and more.

Dust & Drip Resistance

The lens has a dust- and drip-resistant construction that keeps dust and water droplets out.

Fluorine Coating

A smudge-resistant fluorine coating is applied on the front lens, preventing moisture and oil from sticking.
