Not my desire, but my guess:
  • Canon RF 18-45mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
  • Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro
I suspect (pure speculation) that the Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro won't be too far away, it's a popular focal length, currently missing from the available primes.

As I’ve written many times: not much Astro love going on, wide angle fast prime ala 20 1.4L, 24 1.4L or the fabled 14-21 f2 zoom which I would buy in a heartbeat

No mention of new bodies.
Yeah it's been pretty quiet on the R, RP replacements and possible R7. It'd be nice to know more, especially in the wake of Sony

Edit to add: if the 18-45 does indeed come out this year, as Neuro suggests, then that may shed some light on Canon's plans for crop R-mount cameras, if any.

Meh. Canon should release a 50mm f/0.7

It certainly would serve as a halo product. Zeiss made such a lens for satellites and Kubrick got some to shoot the movie Barry Lyndon with. There's a Zeiss Biotar 100m f/0.73 that looks like this:

No mention of new bodies. Could mean rumors are wrong or Canon not wanting to tip their hand. Big whites are overdue and would be appropriate for the R3. Or they may be focusing on additional consumer lenses given how successful they’ve been.
Canon registered two new cameras we just do not know what they are

Canon already has a 45 MP camera that shoots 20 FPS
Yes but it's not for sports and is not well suited for big whites or ergonomics vertical to horizontal. Would prefer two CFExpress for workflow with two 512 and or 1TB cards. The R5 blooms in direct sun, Canon needs to address this for a sports camera for those of who shoot outdoors and and into stadium lighting.

Seems there will be two more lenses announced this year. Unless they are including the two converters in the total of 26. Only a month and a half left in the year.
