Canon Middle East, has launched the RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM and RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS, delivering on its commitment to introducing six RF lenses for the EOS R System to the market in 2019.

Completing Canon’s F2.8L trinity series for the RF mount, the RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM is the world's shortest and lightest interchangeable lens with a focal length of 70-200mm f/2.8 for interchangeable lens cameras with a 35mm Full Frame image sensor. The RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS sits in the new RF lineup as a complementary lens to the RF 85mm F1.2L USM. The RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS does not compromise on quality while achieving the desired soft bokeh look. With its shallow depth of field capabilities, it’s an ideal choice for capturing portrait shots with smooth backgrounds and drawing attention and focus on the subject.

Both lenses join Canon’s RF lens line-up enabling photographers and videographers to capture high-quality still and moving images across all genres – from landscape and architecture, to portrait and nature, or sports and media. Offering incredible quality, durability and versatility there’s now a lens for all photographers – from enthusiasts to professionals – looking to expand their skill set and take stunning shots with the EOS R System in any shooting scenario.

As with all Canon products the RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM and RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS have been designed using customer feedback. Both lenses are dust and water-resistant enabling photographers to handle all weather conditions – giving peace of mind that, whatever the scenario, the kit will withstand the pressures and produce optically excellent images.

The customisable control ring of the RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM and RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS makes it possible to assign aperture, shutter speed, ISO speed, and exposure compensation as desired. The RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM features, a newly designed compact tripod mount which can be removed with a simple operation, to quickly change the vertical and horizontal framing when using a tripod.

The RF 70-200mm F2.8L IS USM and RF 85mm F1.2L USM DS will be available from the start of December.
