This is the follow up to my initial review of the new Canon RF24-240 Super Zoom Lens. If you haven’t read the first part, you may want to click here first.
After completing a few shoots with the new Canon RF 24-240, my opinion did not change about this lens. It is a solid, well-built lens that is a great addition to the RF line of Canon lenses. I could even see it as an inexpensive choice over the RF 24-105, or the steeper priced RF 24-70L.
For landscapes, 24mm on a full-frame sensor is great.
At 240mm it will work in a pinch for close up shots that can be cropped to look like macros.
I’ve also tried this lens on my natural color EOS-R and it performs flawlessly.
So, should you get this lens?
That depends on your personal situation. If you intend to have a RF 24-70L or RF 24-105L, and RF 70-200L then you probably won’t need this lens. However, I could see quite a few photographers heading out the door with just this one lens.
If Canon does like most retailers, keep an eye out for Sale before the Christmas season starts.
