The long-rumored Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM and Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM will likely be announced sometime in the next couple of weeks. These lenses have been delayed a couple of times already this year I have been told.
As noted by Nokishita today, the lens hoods for each lens have been added to Canon's product catalog. Lens hood ET-83G (WIII) and Lens hood ES-65B will be for the RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM and RF 50mm f/1.8 STM.
Both of these lenses will be small, especially the RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM which I have been told is basically the “size of a Coke can”.
More to come…
You beat me to it. It would go nicely with the RF35/1.8 & RF85/2, and make it more versatile.
$199 would be perfect :love:
But I don't think that 349 will be enough for the MRSP of the RF 50 STM.
Looking at the 85 STM price I'd add at least another 200.
And if the 70-200 is an "L" maybe we need to look further towards 1,800.
Just my 2 cents.
But you're right that this is an interesting combo (y)
And I would buy at least 2 of them when going into R system.
To me it always was to the 50/1.8 and its predecessors, also called "plastic fantastic".
IMO the RF50/1.8 STM will be the equivalent to the EF 50/1.4, as the RF85/2 is for the EF 85/1.8 USM.
Edit: Af far as it looks now this will be more the "nifty 50" EF 50/1.8 STM equivalent.
Leaves space for a RF50/1.x IS STM macro.
