Canon has released its financial report for Q3 of 2021. All things considered, Canon will be pretty close to achieving projected sales numbers, with only a small drop to their sales projections due to the global chip shortage.
It also looks like we’ll see two more RF lenses announced in 2021 according to Canon’s presentation materials. There are currently 24 RF mount lenses including the RF 5.2mm f/2.8L Dual Lens Fisheye.
Imaging-Cameras
The camera market remained solid thanks to the strength of personal consumption, particularly in Europe and the United States, and the launch of new full-frame mirrorless cameras by each company stimulated the need for high-quality image expression. However, due to the global shortage of parts, the size of this year’s market is now projected to be 5.9 million units, 100 thousand units fewer than in our previous projection. Similarly, we expect our own unit sales to be 2.95 million units, 50 thousand units fewer than in our previous projection.

I'd prefer a 20-200mm(or so) f4L(or else f5.6L) lens with large max. magnification at 200mm, so that I'd have a top-quality single lens for comfortable travel and close-up use. But I have a feeling that it won't happen any time soon (or ever) - sigh!

I would love to see that compact 28-70mm F 2.8 NON L-lense of the patent posted a short time ago, but I guess if that one is coming it´s going to be next year. There is not a single affordable (less than 1500 $/€) fast standard zoom for the RF-mount so far.

Adapted EF lenses are still perfect for R mount and are very reasonably priced especially in the second hand market. I have 5 EF lenses that I am not planning to replace with RF - where a replacement exists. The control ring is great for some but I am still not using it yet

Given that the RF 400/600mm lenses have been released, I would seem logical to me that the 500/800mm (maybe 300mm) would be released next before the winter olympics starting 4-Feb-2022.
