FINALLY! Canon launches its first 135mm lens in 26 years

After a quarter of a century, the Canon RF 135mm f/1.8L IS USM finally replaces the legendary Canon EF 135mm f/2L USM. The new RF model will natively fit EOS R cameras, and while the focal length remains identical it does have a slightly wider maximum aperture of f/1.8, making it a third of an f-stop brighter.

The Canon RF 135mm f/1.8L IS USM features image stabilization that Canon claims will deliver sharp shots when shooting 5.5 stops slower than usual, or a whopping 8 stops when paired with an R system body with in-body image stabilization, such as the new Canon EOS R6 Mark II (opens in new tab). This should make it a dream to shoot with in low light, and we can’t wait to give it a test run.
