The eternally rumoured Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM (or f/1.4) has been rumoured for what seems forever. We've seen this before with certain lenses, most notably the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM II. They existed and took forever to actually get announced and hit the market.
We have been told that Canon actually plans to launch 3 wide angle L prime lenses from the RF mount in the first half of 2023. One of the lenses will be the RF 35mm f/1.2L (or f/1.4) and an RF 24mm f/1.4L USM. The third lens is unknown at this time, though we have heard rumors of Canon finally releasing an L 28mm prime lens. Craig wants that to be true more than any rumor ever.
This makes some sense. A lot of photographers wouldn't buy more than 1 of these lenses. Releasing such lenses together gives customers the choice that fits their shooting without settling for something close, but not exactly what is wanted.
More to come…
