Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L USM Lens Review: Greatest Zoom EVER for Canon EOS R

Tony Northrup has tested the Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L USM lens and compared it to the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L II and the Canon EOS R with RF 24-105mm f/4L IS. Finally he said the Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L USM lens is the greatest zoom lens ever for Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera.

The Canon 28-70 f/2 R is a full stop faster than the standard 24-70 f/2.8 that many pros use, and that’s a HUGE deal. That reduces noise by a full stop in low-light situations. It blurs the background more than has ever been possible. There’s a cost, though: size, and, well, cost. It’s $3,000. I compare it to the Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L II and the Canon EOS R 24-105 f/4.
