Best Lenses for Canon EOS R

The Canon EOS R opens up new shooting possibilities for photographers and filmmakers. Innovative RF lenses offer super-fast focusing along with outstanding optical quality while compatibility with the legendary EF lens range is provided thanks to a range of adapters that connect Canon EOS R to existing EOS users and their EF and EF-S lenses.

To back up the launch of its EOS R System, Canon unveiled four new lenses and three new adapters for its brand-new RF lens mount. The two zoom and two prime lenses pave the way for the future by taking advantage of the new engineering capabilities afforded by Canon’s next-generation lens mount, the company says, while the three adapters ensure the more than 130 million EOS lenses on the market won’t get left behind.
