The RF lens mount was developed by Canon and launched in 2018, alongside the EOS R mirrorless camera system to replace the EF mount. The shorter flange distance of the RF mount means that Canon RF lenses can only be used on Canon’s mirrorless EOS R cameras; they are not backwards compatible with DSLR cameras using the older EF mount.
While Canon initially continued to develop several more EF-mount DSLRs after the launch of the RF mount, they stated publicly at the beginning of 2020 that there would be no more Canon EF lenses. Since then, the Canon RF lens range has expanded rapidly. In this guide, you’ll find detailed specifications of every Canon RF lens.
