If the 70-200 f4 is in the picture (and why wouldn't it be?) it seems that it's a black lens unlike it's EF counterpart. Also it has to be pretty compact otherwise it would stick out more.
I have to count the lenses.. maybe it's the one beside the 70-200 2.8L? but it looks fat for an F4.

I think this is right .. seems to be no 50mm or70-200 F4.

The lens with the ? I think it would be the 85mm Macro.

I think the RF 50mm f/1.8 STM and the RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM are the two lenses missing from this picture, and they will be released a bit later on.

Man, it's good to have some concrete dates but I was hoping it would ship sooner. Maybe it means that they want to minimize shortages. Does it still open for pre-orders on announcement?

Good to have a date so everything will be out in the open. As I'm going to have to wait for the R5 if it as priced as expected. :(, I'd love to know if the 1.4 & 2 x extenders are compatible with the RF24-104 F4l and RF 70-200MF2.8? There have been some differing opinions. Some say yes they are, some say no they are not as the design of the lenses dont allow enough room between the sensor and the lens, also are they designed just for RF lenses or for EF / RF?

The only lens, that will be compatible (for now) is the RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM
(and possibly the two f/11 DO lenses, but they are non-L lenses, so they might not be)

As an aside to the huge announcements, can anyone offer any information on the drop in filter mounts? I can only find mounts that are for the EF-EOS R but none specifically to use with RF lenses?

Interesting, I cant find any information on this and canon won't comment. Not sure of the rationale for the bigger lenses to be compatible with the extenders? Why extend an already big lens and reduce the aperture even more? I might be looking at this the wrong way as I've never used extenders but wouldn't it make more sense for extenders to work with medium ranges like the 70-200?

So confusing :sneaky:

The 70–200mm is designed to exploit the short flange distance of the RF mount. Unfortunately that makes it physically incompatible with extenders.

Do I understand correctly that R5 shows only one built-in microphone hole, while R6, R and Ra show two?
