  • Seamless multimedia artistry in one design

    The 35mm focal length offers a sweet spot in perspective. A separate Iris Ring brings smooth manual iris control when filming,1 while an 11-blade aperture gives outstanding depth-of-field control, with minimal focus breathing for incredible image quality.

  • A brilliant creative performance, even in low light.

    Keep shooting when light levels drop thanks to an f/1.4 aperture for a bright image. The prime lens design puts the focus on your subject, with the option for front and rear filters for extra creative control.

  • Crystal-clear imaging with rapid precision

    Enjoy superb image quality thanks to aspheric and UD lens elements with Super Spectra and ASC coatings. A fast Nano USM combined with even faster Voice Coil Motor (VCM2) technology delivers fast and precise focusing.

  • Superb reliability with intuitive handling

    Work tough in challenging conditions thanks to an L-series design housing high-quality glass elements. A fluorine coating prevents dirt sticking to the front element while a dedicated Lens Control Ring and customisable Lens Function Button bring you personalised control.

  • Thoughtful, lightweight design

    Be more agile when you’re shooting thanks to better balance and lightweight handling. The RF 35mm F1.4L VCM is lighter than its EF predecessor and being a hybrid, it’s well-suited for fitting into smaller video rigs.
