Canon made this 4.5-minute video explaining the technology of its new RF lens mount for full-frame mirrorless cameras.
“[W]hat makes these lenses so outstanding?” Canon writes. “This video introduces the innovative features of RF lenses that open up new possibilities in photographic expression.”
Canon says that RF lenses are superior to conventional lenses when it comes to minimizing aberrations caused by refraction, especially at the outer edges of photos.
