Canon Lens Rumors

Two more lenses from our long-standing RF lens roadmap are up next from Canon. There has been further confirmation from Nokishita that Canon will announce an RF 16mm f/2.8 and an RF 100-400mm telephoto zoom lens. Neither lens will be an L lens and should be quite affordable.

I’m not sure at this time if the 16mm f/2.8 will be a pancake lens, as I continue to receive that question a lot.

More to come…

An RF full frame 16mm f/2.8 pancake would be a fabulous lens if they can make a wide lens like that so compact, no doubt they can, or it wouldn't have been mentioned by CR

Too late, I already ordered the Laowa 15mm F2 last week.
I hope, the 24 RF will show up soon enough. Otherwise, I will go with Sigma.
I am looking forward tot he 24mm for doing half-macro work as well!

Give me the IQ of the G2 150-600 or better in the non L 100-400 and I'm in. This should be a slam dunk.

I highly doubt that a 16mm f/2.8 FF lens with the flange distance of 20 mm can be a pancake.

Weeks? I am waiting for months for my 100-500... )-;
That’s unfortunate. I ordered mine on 8/15 and it was delivered 8/25. Lucky timing on Amazon (they show In Stock Soon when Canon notifies them to expect a shipment). Next time you see a stock notice pop up here or on CPW, check Amazon and Best Buy. For the last 100-500 bolus in mid-August, B&H didn’t get enough to fill their preorders, but Best Buy had them in stock for a few days.
