Specifically designed for professional VR production, the Canon RF 5.2mm f2.8 L Dual Fisheye Lens offers a streamlined process that speeds up every stage of the production process. This innovative lens, Canon’s first stereoscopic VR lens, simplifies 180° VR content creation by capturing two high-resolution images on a single Full Frame sensor. Together with Canon’s EOS VR Utility software and EOS VR Plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro, your VR production will be ready to immerse and amaze in no time.

Expanded Canon RF 5.2mm f2.8 L Dual Fisheye Lens Key Features:

Streamlined Virtual Reality

This lens is designed specifically for (3D) 180° VR capture. Where other VR production would require two separate cameras and a lengthy post-production process, matching the footage from both together; this compact, single mount design simplifies that process. With a stereoscopic 190° field of view, the two offset circular fisheye images captured are perfectly synchronised and recorded side-by-side onto a single Full Frame sensor image, streamlining the entire process.

Furthermore, another time-consuming and complex task in producing VR content is converting dual circular fisheye images into side-by-side equirectangular 180° VR format. However, thanks to Canon’s EOS VR Utility application and EOS VR Plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro, the conversion process is streamlined. The EOS VR Utility2/plug-in2 converts the files with the need for additional stitching.

Lens Performance

The lens construction is something to behold. With an intricate optical pathway, the perfectly aligned, dual forward-facing fisheye lenses are able to capture exceptional detail and sharpness. Each lens features two UD lens elements that help to correct various aberrations, as well as Canon’s own SWC lens coatings that reduce ghosting and flare, even in backlit shooting conditions. The lens also features a rear-mounted gelatin filter holder for pre-cut ND gels which are used to control light levels when in use on 180° VR video productions.

With the bright, fast and wide f2.8 aperture, this lens also offers impressive low-light performance with accurately synchronised exposure and precise control via a dual Electro Magnetic Diaphragm (EMD). This performance is heightened when used with the likes of Canon’s EOS R5 mirrorless camera body.

Exceptional Quality

As an L-series lens, the Canon RF 5.2mm f2.8 L Dual Fisheye is built to an exceptional standard. Designed for professional use, this lens is dust and splash resistant as well as featuring fluorine coatings that repel both water and dirt from the front lens element. Naturally, this lens seamlessly flows with Canon R series mirrorless cameras, exhibiting the same sleek, stylish and professional finish.

What’s in the box?

  • 1 x Canon RF 5.2mm f2.8 L Dual Fisheye Lens
  • 1 x Lens Cap 5.2
  • 1 x Soft Lens Case LS1014
  • 1 x Lens Dust Cap RF


Do I still have to stitch together the footage in post-production?

Thanks to the dual lenses and Canon’s EOS VR Utility application, the files are automatically converted and stitched together. Additionally, this software allows you to easily process and export videos/images into different resolutions and codecs (up to 8K in file size). This optimises the final production for suitable VR headsets.

Can this be used as a normal lens?

While you can use this lens on your Canon R mount camera, the resulting images would not resemble standard images and therefore would not highlight the scene you’re capturing. This lens is specifically designed for VR production.

During the six-month deferral period, it is possible to pay off the loan, either by way of a lump sum or in smaller amounts. If the loan is partially repaid within six months, the remaining interest will be adjusted to reflect the new balance. If the loan is fully repaid within the six-month deferral period, then no interest is payable, however, a £29 early settlement fee is payable in respect of repayments within these six months.

Following the six-month deferral period, Novuna Personal Finance will initiate a monthly direct debit payment for the remaining duration of the loan. Interest will be charged at a rate of 18.9% APR on outstanding balances (backdated to the first date of the loan). Novuna Personal Finance will send a reminder letter approximately one month before the six-month deferral period is due to elapse.
