RF15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM

Ultra-Wide Zoom

Item Code: 5775C002AA


RF ultra wide-angle zoom lens for EOS R series cameras

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 15mm coverage, with a full-frame camera, is a direct line to making the ordinary visually extraordinary, and on an APS-C size image sensor camera you get an focal length equivalent to approx. 24-48mm coverage for a very useful wide to standard-angle range.

Excellent image quality

Highlights include two UD (Ultra-low Dispersion) glass elements, one aspheric element, and Canon SSC (Super Spectra Coating) to minimize ghosting and flare.

Optical image stabilization - up to 5.0 stops* of shake correction


Optical image stabilization - up to 5.0 stops* of shake correction. Up to 7.0 stops of shake correction when paired with EOS R series cameras featuring In-Body Image Stabilizer (IBIS).

Get in close

With a Minimum focus distance of approx. 11 In./0.28m (5.1 In./0.13m in manual focus at 15mm zoom position.) You can combine the visual power of wide-angle coverage with excellent close-focusing and open up a whole new way of seeing small, nearby subjects. It's yet another way to add drama to your video and still images.

Lead Screw-type STM

Canon's stepping motor (STM) technology is especially effective at producing smooth, quiet autofocus during video recording, even in low light. This lens is a perfect choice for multi-media content creation with quiet autofocus. And, STM focus drive provides responsive, quick - and exceptionally quiet - AF during still-image shooting, as well.

Impressively compact and light

Coming in under one pound (approx. 0.9 lbs./390g.) you can certainly carry this versatile zoom lens almost anywhere, and at only about 3.5 inches long, it is easy to stand or sit in front of this lens while holding it with one hand for selfies, vlogging, and so much more.

MTF Charts

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.
