5 Must Have Canon Mirrorless Lenses

You have gone mirrorless, but that is just the first step. You’ve got the bolt but no nut, the bow but no arrow. The next step is to find the right lens for your shooting needs.

Canon RF Lenses

Below are our 5 Canon mirrorless lens suggestions for Architecture, Wildlife, Portrait, Landscape and Macro photography.

The Architecture Lens: Canon RF 35mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM

Its sumptuous image quality and compact nature makes the Canon RF 35mm F1.8 the perfect lens to slap on a body, go out and capture the beauty of your city. The image quality is glorious thanks to its Super Spectra Coating and the RF mount placing the lens closer to the sensor.

The RF 35mm F1.8 is a wide-angle prime lens that is the perfect lens for architecture and street photography.  It is a light, silent lens with a fast aperture, and excellent stabilisation due to the 5-axis image stabilisation system.

The Portrait Lens: Canon RF 85mm F1.2L USM

The Canon RF 85mm F1.2L USM is a beautiful contradiction of a lens. It is a lens that creates a striking portrait look, with a smooth, creamy bokeh but it does not highlight every flaw of your subject. A flattering lens, that can take both favourable close ups and glamorous full-length shots, that are both sharp, and favourably soft.

The best thing about the RF 85 is that it saves you editing time by rendering a beautiful portrait straight from the camera.

The Wildlife Lens: Canon RF 600mm F11 IS STM

The Canon RF 600mm is a great general purpose super-telephoto wildlife lens that has a fixed aperture, and very little drop off. It is equally fantastic at capturing both animal and birdlife with an attractive background blur and a sharpness that suggests that it should be a far more expensive lens.

It is an affordable lens, with excellent focus accuracy that is near silent thanks to Canon’s STM focus system. It is a great lens for capturing stunning images of both predator and prey in the wild.

The Landscape Lens: Canon RF 24-70mm F2.8L IS USM

If you love to get out there and capture the beautiful landscapes of planet earth, you need a fast, reliable lens. You need the Canon RF24-70mm F2.8L IS USM, which has the sharpness of a prime and is as light as the previous EF model.

You can also keep shooting in bad weather thanks to the RF24-70 robust weather sealing. You never have to worry about, sharpness or stability with 8 stops of image stabilisation.

The Macro Lens: Canon RF 100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM 

The Canon RF 100mm F2.8 Macro is the world’s first macro lens, with both auto focus and 1.4 magnification for full frame cameras. This lens gives the photographer the ability to control the look of the foreground and background bokeh. You can soften and harden it at will, while adding a soft-focus effect on the subject at the same time.    

It is a creative powerhouse of a lens that helps you capture the smallest objects handheld at an absurdly low shutter speed with the assistance of hybrid Image stabilisation.
