Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM to be one of the next lenses announced

Canon will be adding another wide-angle zoom to the RF lineup sometime over the next month or two. Expect to see a Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM  as a little brother to the Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM.

The Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM uses the product code 4857C005.

Our Canon RF lens roadmap has had the RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM on it for quite some time.

I don’t know the price at this time, but if I had to give a prediction, I’d say $1199-$1299 USD.

oh man, I really hoped it was 14mm at the wide end.

edit: well, glad it was just a typo. Can't wait to see how much lighter the 14-35mm will be when compared to the 15-35mm

Disappointing that they're not matching Nikon with 14-30 here, especially because in my view, if I'm out to 35 with a lens like this, I have the wrong lens on my camera. Makes my decision to stay with my 15-35 less challenging though... 1. Already have 2. 15mm 3. f/2.8. The size/weight benefit will not be enough for me to give up #'s 2 and 3.

Ha, I just wrote out a whole comment to refresh and see 14-35.

This sounds like an excellent lens that will make my life more difficult, since now I could swap my EF lens to get even wider. It's really a question between the 15-35 or the 14-35, of whether I want the wider aperture or wider lens.

Had it been another 16-35, I would have had no real incentive to swap my EF version which has always worked great for me.

YES! Been longing for this lens since I tried the RF 15-35 (2 copies, a rented one and a friends actually) and found that neither could match the sharpness of my existing EF 16-35 F/4 L IS, even at f/4. I am ready to replace that lens with an RF counterpart though and this one would be perfect if it is up to the task optically.

The EF 16-35mm f4 IS was one of my favorite travel lenses.
For travel I bring the TS-E 17 and the 11-24/4L for wide lenses.

But I use the 16-35/4L IS around the house and for local outings, in fact it’s mounted on my EOS R (via adapter) right now. I would not have replaced it with an RF 15-35/4, but am tempted by the 14-35.

The weight would be good to know.
It should be more lightweight than the 15-35 2.8, but it has one mm more and IS. I hope for 600g... Then I will consider as a good travel lens. If not, I stay with the 17 TSE. (yes I know its more than 1kg with adapter)


Itchy shutter finger...

Really excited about lens… my 16-35mm f4 is on my camera most of the when walking around the city. I use it for most of my landscape shots… and RF version with 14mm on the wide end within a reasonable price range ($1200ish) would be awesome!

Though the $2200 15-35 2.8 is highly regarded… it isn’t worth the $1000 difference for my purposes.

This could be a winner lens for me. I made extensive use of my EF 16-35 f4L when I visited Badlands a couple of weeks ago. Swapping lenses (and adapters) quite a bit there.

It'll be interesting to see how 14 mm compares to 16. Wider, of course, but it will be interesting to see how much wider.

Please, please release this lense asap and make it available at a reasonable waiting period I've been waiting for this lense ever since I got my R (March 2019). I used the 16-35mm F4 which I loved! Now it's going to be even wider (yay ). I'd love to see it's weight reduced, but I think the RF 15-35mm F2.8 is actually heavier than the EF Version, so I don't have high hopes.
