When it comes to high-quality photography equipment, Canon lenses stand out as some of the best in the industry. Here at the National Store, we’re proud to be an authorised distributor and retailer of Canon products, including their latest lens, the Canon RF 28mm. This lens offers a range of features suitable for both vloggers and photographers seeking a lightweight yet versatile lens capable of wide-angle photography. Read on to discover why the Canon RF 28mm lens might be the perfect addition to your camera kit.
The appeal of the pancake lens
The Canon RF 28mm lens is a classic example of a pancake lens. Known for their slim, lightweight design, pancake lenses like the RF 28mm are incredibly versatile. These Canon lenses are compatible with both full-frame and crop-sensor cameras, making them a fantastic option for photographers at all skill levels. The lens provides sharp images with soft backgrounds, especially when shooting wide-an. Moreover, it comes at a price point that is accessible for beginners and photography enthusiasts looking to invest in their first prime lens.
One of the standout features of the Canon RF 28mm lens is its compact size. Measuring just 1 x 2.7 inches and weighing a mere 4.2 ounces, this lens won’t add extra weight to your camera bag. Despite its small stature, it’s fully compatible with full-frame cameras like the EOS R6 Mark II, as well as crop-sensor models such as the EOS R7 and EOS R100.
When mounted on a full-frame camera, the Canon RF 28mm lens captures detailed portraits with background context, making it ideal for street photography, group shots, and landscapes. On crop-sensor cameras, the lens offers a 45mm equivalent focal length, perfect for isolating subjects against a soft, blurred background. However, its standard focal length makes it less suitable for capturing distant subjects.
