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.
I believe in the EF lineup, teleconverters were considered (and counted) as lenses. On the canon USA website, when you filter by RF lenses the extenders are on the list.

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
Just curious, why do you think an 18-45mm f/4-5.6 is likely? That would be an unusual range for FF. Are you thinking there's going to be an APS-C RF body soon? I don't remember what opinion you've expressed on that before.

I think it's likely because it appears on the leaked image/screenshot of Canon's RF lens roadmap. Personally, I don't think we'll see an APS-C EOS R for several reasons. An inexpensive 18-45mm FF lens would be a good budget UWA zoom option for the RF system, and by starting at 18mm perhaps have a significant number of people buy both the 16/2.8 and the 18-45.
