The 28mm focal length gives the photographer the ability to photograph in a wide range of settings. Especially suitable for portrait and perspective photography, the lens is compatible with cameras like the EOS R8 and EOS R6 Mark II.

The lens provides a typical vision for a realistic perspective when used with APS-C cameras such as the EOS R50 and the EOS R7. It is equal to a full-frame 45mm camera. By combining the lens with an EOS R100, you can capture long-distance photos and half-body portraits.

The RF28mm f/2.8 STM’s wide f/2.8 aperture creates beautiful bokeh, allowing you to freeze moving subjects, and helping you capture more clear handheld photos in low light.

On both APS-C and full-frame cameras, its adjustable 28mm focal length enables a broad range of framing options.
