In order to complement Canon cameras, the company has different series of lenses. For instance, Canon RF mount system is devoted to full-frame mirrorless interchangeable-lens cameras. The company announced a new lens for the RF mount system, Canon RF 70-200mm F4L IS USM, last year. But the shipment of the same lens got delayed. The reason was the manufacturing problems faced by camera makers in Japan. There are still issues in the production of imaging products due to COVID-19 outbreak.
But here is good news for Canon users. According to the latest report, the shipment of the new 70-200mm F4L IS USM will commence this week. Canon Rumors writes, "I have just received word that the Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM will begin shipping from some retailers this week. I do not know what sort of allocation is being made available, or how long preorder lists are."
Canon RF 70-200mm F4L IS USM is a small tele zoom lens. The company claims this lens is "one of the shortest and lightest 70-200 F4 interchangeable lenses in the world." The key features of the lens include constant F4 aperture, optical image stabilization of up to 5 shutter speed stops, fast and accurate AF with dual nano USM (ultrasonic motors), 0.28x macro magnification, and more.
The Canon RF 70-200mm F4L IS USM is made of 4 UD elements. These elements are well arranged to produce images with minimal colour fringing from edge-to-edge of the frame. Additionally, the 70-200mm F4L IS USM features Air Sphere Coating (ASC) to suppress ghosting. There is a fluorine coating on the front lens that prevents moisture and oil from sticking. The lens is dust and drip resistant as well as vibration resistant.
Canon RF 70-200mm F4L IS USM is listed on the Canon India website. The lens is available for users at Rs 1,40,995.
