Canon has announced the RF 135mm F1.8L IS USM, price tag £2,549.99/€2,999.99, a new telephoto prime L series lens with a fast aperture.

Aimed at portrait and low-light photography, the new Canon RF 135mm F1.8L IS USM features a bright f/1.8 aperture for shooting in dark conditions and controlling depth of field.

The new RF L-series lens boasts built-in optical image stabilization that offers up to 5.5 stops of stabilization. This can be increased to eight stops when used with Canon cameras with IBIS technology.

A nine-blade aperture enables smooth, well-rounded bokeh, and the RF 135mm F1.8L IS USM is good for shooting at a minimum focal length of 0.7m tat 0.26x zoom.

The RF 135mm F1.8L IS USM optical construction features three UD elements for more accurate colors, while ASC and Super Spectra Coatings help reduce ghosting and flare.

Inside the lens, Nano USM promises fast and quiet AF, while a customizable control ring lets you make adjustments to exposure settings.

The Canon RF 135mm F1.8L IS USM is also the first non-superphoto Canon lens to feature two lens function buttons.

The Canon RF 135mm F1.8L IS USM price tag will be £2,549.99/€2,999.99, with a release date of 22nd December 2022.
