Realise your creative vision
The EOS R System inherits all the advantages of the EOS system and as well as its own range of lenses, offers full compatibility with existing EF and EF-S optics with adapters plus the range of Speedlite flashes and accessories.
Canon EOS R and Canon EOS RP are the latest members of the renowned EOS family and are fully compatible with a system developed with over three decades of continuous refinement. These EOS R System cameras are innovative and new in design, however are easily adaptable with other EF, EF-S lenses, Speedlite flashes and accessories.
Exceptional optical performance
The RF lenses are specially designed to complement EOS R System cameras and set new standards in resolving power. The secret of their success is the redesigned lens mount, which places the lens at the optimum distance from the sensor. This ingenious design has opened up new opportunities to create a range of EOS RF L-series lenses which offer excellent optical performance, ensuring maximum detail is recorded in the image.
Use your EF or EF-S lenses
As well as RF lenses, you can also use the full range of Canon EF or EF-S lenses on EOS R System cameras with absolutely no loss of optical performance, via a choice of adapters1. These adapters maintain full communication between body and lens but offer greater control, allowing you to keep using your own lenses and explore others in the Canon lens system.
Explore a high range of lighting possibilities
Another benefit of being part of the EOS family is that EOS R System cameras are also compatible with existing Canon accessories including the current full range of Speedlite flashguns and specialist products such as the Macro Ring Lite series. This gives you even more creative options for low-light or creative photography while enjoying the technical benefits of the EOS R System.
