Canon Lens Rumors

Canon to announce at least 6 new RF lenses next week

Update: Canon will announce at least 6 new RF lenses, we’ve added the RF 85mm f/1.2L USM DS to the list.

Canon is going to be announcing at least 5 RF lenses next week, and we’ve also been told as many as 8 will be announced.

Five lenses have already leaked and they include the following:

That’ll give us the promised “holy trinity”, as well as the already rumored RF 85mm f/1.2L and a new superzoom that will likely be available in a kit.

The Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS ended up being wider than 16mm to begin the “holy trinity”, but not as wide as previously mentioned.

Here I am, thinking all I want is the 24-70 2.8 IS. But now it seems I want a few more.

But do I want to sell my EF gear to fund it? Argh!

I wish Canon did trade-in offers like Sony & Nikon are doing with their cameras.

I want that RF 85mm f/1.2L, but I really hope Canon implement IBIS because that heavy glass will need it.

Looks like Canon's lens team is given a free reign. While nikon still hasn't released their 50mm .95 lens here we have Canon launching some practical lenses which pros and normal users can use.
I am really hoping to see a 100mm Macro for EOS-R mount.

Wow! IS confirmed on the 24-70 and that 70-200 looks really compact for a f/2.8 zoom!

Next lenses we waited for a long time on EF.... to sad Canon is doing this with us. They score with better bodys for EF as R, but not with long awaited lenses (50 1.2, 24-70 2.8 IS, ~16-35 2.8 IS). Maybe we will also see a new 135 2.0 with IS?! Would freak me totaly.

So lets hope they will bring a decent upgraded 5IV on R!! (min. of 10fps!)

Want that wide. That will leave 3 EF lenses in my R system... 85mm f/1.4 IS, 70-200mm f/2.8 (can't do this one until teleconverters are released), and the Sigma 28mm f/1.4. Exciting!

That 24-240 f/4-6.3 IS USM is the lens I was waiting for. It looks like it's going to be a top seller for the EOS R and EOS RP cameras. I'm a little surprised Canon didn't launch the EOS R with this lens, but x10 optical zoom full-frame glass is no easy feat to make, so maybe it got hit with production/testing delays.

That stood out to me as well. The 70-200L glass on EF forewent a telescoping barrel. I'm not sure how they can make a 2.8 telephoto zoom that short without a telescoping barrel, even on a mirrorless system.

Looks like the 24-240 is missing the customizable ring?

Could be that the "focus" ring is in reality a customisable ring which could be configured as a MF ring? The texture is consistent with that of the other customisable rings.

This is great. Now it's just to wait till they release a proper mirrorless camera that makes justice of all that glass.

That's true. And one of the drawings in the 70-200 patent application had a moving front element, so a telescoping barrel could be a possibility.

It has a red ring, so I guess it’s not DO. Also noticed the 15-35 will use screw in front filters.
