So small, you forget it’s there



The RF28mm f/2.8 STM is as thin as the name "pancake" indicates. Measuring less than 2.5 centimetres in length when it is retracted, it weighs little more than a bar of soap, which is around 120 grammes.

With the lens's great portability and easy-to-use focal length, one can just focus on drawing inspiration and let creativity go wild--making it excellent for both photography and vlogging.

Versatile Focal Length

Go Full-frame for Wide Shot

Maximise the 28mm when used on a full-frame mirrorless camera.

Go Full-frame to Include More

The 28mm focal length on a full-frame mirrorless camera allows you to show more in your portraits.

Close to Natural Perspective

Get up to 45mm shooting on an APS-C mirrorless camera, giving you a natural perspective akin to the human eye's angle of view.

Get Up Close

The RF28mm f/2.8 STM can get up to 0.17x magnification with a minimum focusing distance of 0.23m. When paired with an APS-C mirrorless camera, you can get some amazing close-up shots at 45mm.

Large Aperture

Beautiful Bokeh



Combining the large f/2.8 aperture with the 7-blade circular aperture design, this lens is capable of delivering beautiful bokeh.

The RF28mm f/2.8 STM performs well in low light thanks to its wide aperture. When paired with a camera that is built with an In-body Image Stabilizer, you can get sharp images taken with a slow shutter speed.

Superior Image Quality

With three large-diameter plastic-molded aspherical lenses and an effective optical layout, the RF28mm f/2.8 STM provides superb sharpness and clarity from the image's centre to its edges in a small package.

Focus Breathing Correction

The camera's angle of view changes slightly during focus racking while recording video, causing an annoying 'pulsing' effect in the footage. The RF28mm f/2.8 STM compensates for the change in field of view as the focus point is changed, resulting in seamless video recording.


Canon's unique gear-type stepping motor (STM) provides a smooth and quiet autofocus operation even during movie recording.

Dual Function Ring

The RF28mm f/2.8 STM comes with Canon's signature knurled control ring that functions as both a focus and exposure dial.
