The RF 24-240mm f/4L IS USM is a versatile, compact and lightweight 10x zoom lens for the Canon EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera system.
Featuring a Nano Ultrasonic Motor for smooth, precise and quiet continuous auto-focusing, Super Spectra coatings, 7 rounded diaphragm blades for smoother bokeh, a zoom lock switch to prevent lens creep, a switchable Focus/Control Ring, and image stabilisation offering a claimed 5-stop advantage, the Canon RF 24-240 lens is certainly a versatile all-rounder.
Ease of Use
The Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS USM is amazingly small and compact considering the extremely versatile focal range that it covers, weighing in at just 750g and measuring 12.2cm in length, although it does extend to 19.5cm when the lens is set to 240mm.
Build quality is very good for what is after all a non L-series lens. The Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS USM feels solid enough in your hand, even if it is mostly made out of plastic.
The focusing ring is just about wide enough to quickly locate and it has a diamond knurled grip band for easier operation.
If you’re not using the focusing ring for manual focusing, you can change its operation to be the Lens Control Ring instead via the dedicated Focus/Control switch on the side of the lens barrel.
