RF14-35mm F4 L IS USM

Ultra-Wide Zoom

Item Code: 4857C002AA


Dramatic, creative possibilities with 14mm ultra wide-angle coverage

Ultra wide-angle coverage changes the way you see the world — whether you shoot video, landscapes, interiors, travel, or simply creative images that leverage lens effects. The combination of 14mm coverage, with a full-frame camera, is a direct line to making the ordinary visually extraordinary.

Covers entire wide-angle zoom range, from exceptionally wide 14mm through 35mm


One lens for all wide-angle needs — for everything from street shooting or group photos to dramatic, ultra-wide architectural images. This lens is one-stop shopping for anyone who enjoys the possibilities of wide-angle imagery. And, vital to landscape shooters, this lens accepts standard 77mm screw-in filters — an incredible feature on a lens as wide as 14mm.

Bright, constant f/4 zoom lens with L-series optical construction

Superb optics, as you’d expect from a Canon L-series lens, for truly professional-level image and video quality. And with its constant f/4 maximum aperture, there’s no worry about exposure adjustments as you zoom.

Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC) and Air Sphere Coating (ASC) help to significantly reduce flare and ghosting

The RF14-35mm F4 L IS USM lens features our Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC) and Air Sphere Coating (ASC), which helps to reduce the occurrence of lens flare and ghosting. This helps provide clean results with minimal distractions and aberrations

Compact design — Approx. 1.2 lbs. weight, similar to RF85mm F2 IS STM lens

Its strong, pro-level build quality belies this lens’s delightfully compact size and weight. Significantly lighter than comparable f/2.8 ultra-wide zooms, it’s tremendously appealing for its portability and easy handling — making it perfect for travel.

Close-focusing down to 7.9 inches at all focal lengths, and maximum magnification of 0.38x, at 35mm zoom setting

Combining the visual power of wide-angle coverage with excellent close-focusing opens up a whole new way of seeing small, nearby subjects. It’s yet another way to add drama to your video and still images.

Optical Image Stabilizer with up to 5.5 stops* of shake correction

Built-in, optical Image Stabilization means steadier, sharper video and still images, enhancing the possibilities in dim lighting, and at slower shutter speeds. On cameras without In-Body Image Stabilization, up to 5.5 stops* of still-image shake correction is possible.

Up to 7 stops** of shake correction when paired with EOS R-series cameras featuring In-Body Image Stabilizer (IBIS)


When used with Canon EOS R-series cameras that have In-Body Image Stabilization (IBIS), Coordinated IS means you get the shake-correction of both the lens IS and the camera’s IBIS. With this lens, safe hand-holding is possible at shutter speeds up to 7 stops** slower than you could achieve without stabilization.

High speed, smooth and quiet autofocus with Nano USM

With any Canon EOS R-series camera, expect swift and positive autofocus. The Nano USM focus system is especially advantageous to video users, because of its combination of quiet operation and outstanding smoothness of focus changes during actual recording.

Control Ring for direct settings changes

A customizable, click-stopped Control Ring is at the front of the RF14–35mm F4 L IS USM lens, giving yet another control input option for quick adjustments to exposure and other settings. Click-stopped operation gives positive tactile feedback, as you make adjustments. For photographers and moviemakers who would prefer a silent control ring, the clicking mechanism can be removed at a Canon Factory Service Center location for a fee.

Dust- and weather-resistant construction

Canon L-series lenses are designed for tough, professional use — and this lens is no exception. It's highlighted by weather-resistant gaskets and seals at all switches and rotating rings, as well as at the lens mount, so it continues to shine even when the sun doesn't.

A Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) chart measures a lens’ expected optical performance at the center of the picture area and measures repeatedly along the diagonal line, further and further toward the corners of the image. The higher a curve is shown on the chart, the better the lens is performing in the area the chart is measuring. As a curve moves from left to right, it displays the lens' results from center towards the corners.
