Canon will release an RF mount ‘vlogging’ camera in 2022 [CR3]

Canon will release an RF mount ‘vlogging’ camera in 2022 [CR3]

By Canon Rumors | June 30, 2022 | Canon EOS Rumors

Yesterday, Nikon announced the Nikon Z30 Z-mount camera targeting vloggers and people that want a small camera body.

Canon will be releasing a similar camera sometime this year. It could be the rumored EOS R100, but we have long said that Canon would release an RF-mount APS-C camera with a similar form factor as the EOS M6 Mark II, which is a logical next step for Canon.

It’s possible that we’ll see this camera announced alongside the upcoming Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro & Canon RF 15-30mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, both of which will likely have compact designs.

More to come…

The Canon EOS R1 may not come until the 2nd half of 2023 [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | June 27, 2022 | Canon EOS Rumors

We have been told not to expect the Canon EOS R1 “anytime soon”, as a retailer was told not to expect it until the second half of 2023.

With Canon and other manufacturers still suffering from inventory shortages, this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. We also believe Canon wants to round out the lens lineup further before the EOS R1.

The Canon EOS R1 will probably be the camera body that moves EOS-1DX series professionals to mirrorless full-time.  Some will have already moved to the Canon EOS R3, but since that camera body has been difficult to acquire,  a lot of news agencies haven’t purchased Canon mirrorless cameras yet.

It probably makes better financial sense to address the EOS RP and EOS R replacements first, as well as rounding out the L and non-L lens lineup.

The Canon RF 135mm f/1.8L USM is coming in Q4 of 2022 [CR3]

By Canon Rumors | June 24, 2022 | Canon Lens Rumors

We have confirmed yesterdays report about two new full-frame RF mount lenses in the RF 24mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro and the RF 15-30mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM.

Our assumption that they would be announced in the next few weeks may have been incorrect. These lenses may not be announced until October or November of this year.

A third lens will also be announced by November, and that will be the RF 135mm f/1.8L USM (we’re not sure about IS). A Canon RF 135mm f/1.4L USM has been on our roadmap for quite some time, and we have seen patents for such an optical formula. However, it looks like we’re getting an f/1.8 version of the very popular focal length.

There has been no word on the much rumored RF 35mm f/1.2L USM. We will actively try to get some new information.

Canon is going to continue and announce new RF glass during 2022, as they work to fill-out the lens lineup and catch up with the backlog of planned releases hampered by supply chain issues.

One of the rumored lenses to be announced has been on our roadmap for quite some time, and Canon should sell a ton of them.

Patent: Very small large aperture zoom lens optical formulas

Patent: Very small large aperture zoom lens optical formulas

By Canon Rumors | June 21, 2022 | Canon Patents

Canon has published a pretty interesting optical design patent for large aperture zoom lenses. The two designs in this patent are pretty interesting.

Canon’s goal in this patent

To provide a zoom lens having a short total length and a small size but having high optical performance, and an image pickup apparatus having the same.

As you can see, these lens designs use the “reverse” zoom design like the original EF 24-70mm f/2.8L USM. This probably helps in reducing the length and size of the lens. As you can see, the image height changes when zooming in and out.

Overall length is quite impressive at 105.42mm (about 4″) at the wide end. Keep in mind that those measurements are from the image sensor to the front element of the lens design.

Example 1

  • Focal length: 28.84mm – 67.90mm
  • F-number: 2.91
  • Half angle of view: 32.68° – 17.67°
  • Image height: 18.50mm – 21.64mm
  • Overall length: 138.40mm – 105.42mm
  • Back focus: 10.97mm – 21.12mm

Example 2

  • Focal length: 28.84mm – 60.00mm
  • F value: 2.91
  • Half angle of view: 32.68° – 19.83°
  • Image height: 18.50mm – 21.64mm
  • Overall length: 132.38mm – 106.85mm
  • Back focus: 13.47mm – 23.82mm

Are new dream lenses coming for the RF mount? [CR1]

Are new dream lenses coming for the RF mount? [CR1]

By Canon Rumors | June 15, 2022 | Canon Lens Rumors

We all have dream lenses that we want Canon to make, most of which never will be. There is now a crazy rumor from Canon Watch about two such lenses that haven’t appeared on our RF mount roadmap.

The first rumored lens would be an RF-S 33mm f/1L USM, which is basically a 50mm lens for APS-C sensors. While the idea would be pretty desireable, Canon never made “L” EF-S lenses, and we’re not sure if that’s going to change with the RF-S mount.

The second lens is an RF 70-300mm f/2-4L IS USM. I don’t even know what to say about this rumor. I don’t think there would be a market for such a lens. We think that once you reach the pricepoint that this lens would sell for, variable aperture wouldn’t be well received. Who knows though, Canon can always do new and interesting things.

We don’t have a lot of faith in this rumor, but stranger things have happened.

Besides the Canon RF 1mm-1000mm f/1L IS USM Macro Tilt-Shift Pancake, what is your dream lens that will likely never happen?
