The EOS R System and RF Mount takes the heritage of the existing EOS System to new heights. Designed in line with technological advancements and end user feedback when developing the EOS R System, Canon engineers considered the ease of handling and potential to expand the lens portfolio in the future.
The RF lens mount enables a radical new optical design, allowing large lens elements to be placed as near to the sensor as possible, allowing light to hit the sensor straight on. This reduces optical aberrations, increasing the quality of the image.
The mount’s short back focus and wide 54mm mount diameter has made it possible for Canon optical engineers to have a new degree of freedom in order to create a new generation of optics – it provides an ideal balance between reducing the size of the system, high-quality images and high-spec performance.
