Here are the latest Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM lens reviews. The Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 STM is a budget lens for the EOS R system especially an ideal companion for the smaller EOS RP.

CameraLab’s Gordon Laing posted his Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM review and he is rather positive on this lens. From the review:

The Canon RF 24-105 f/4-7.1 STM is the budget kit zoom the EOS R system has been waiting for. Sure, it may lack the glamour of the brighter aperture and more exotic models, but every system needs a low-cost general-purpose zoom to bundle with the entry-level bodies as a starting point.

Thankfully modern lens design coupled with in-camera corrections actually makes it a lot better than you’d think, especially for the size, weight and money. In my tests it delivered respectable sharpness across the frame, throughout the range and even with the aperture wide-open. By employing a variable aperture that dims to f7.1 at the long-end, Canon’s been able to keep size, weight and cost down, making it a very practical and attainable option, while the reasonably close focusing increases its flexibility further.

From ePhotozine Verdict :

The Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM is a fine performer, with a bonus of 24mm ultra-wide coverage, handling superbly, compact, light, focusing down to macro distances, and at half the price of the original offering has to be attractive. In terms of value, as stated above, we could do with weather sealing and a provided lens hood. Other marques provide these things more readily and we could argue that the extra cost at the very least of a lens hood, built into the lens purchase, could be relatively low.

However, despite these points, we have a superb lens that will deliver the goods at a price that, in the context of the Canon EOS R system, has to be good, leaving a package that is Highly Recommended.

From The-Digital-Picture Conclusion :

The Canon RF 24-105mm F4-7.1 IS STM Lens solidly fills the empty slot in the RF lens lineup. Those acquiring an affordable, compact, full-frame mirrorless interchangeable lens EOS R-series camera now have an equally affordable, small, and light general-purpose/standard zoom kit lens.

I sometimes carry a camera and lens with me when trail running to capture those images that just show up. The RF 24-105mm STM lens has been one of the best options I’ve found for that use. This lens provides a generous zoom range and high-performing 5-stop image stabilization in a package that measures only 3.02 x 3.5″ (76.6 x 88.8mm) and weighs only 13.9 oz (395g). The smooth, quiet STM AF system is especially welcomed for video use, and the 0.5x maximum magnification capability extends this lens’s versatility. The image quality produced by this lens is good.
