    Canon will be adding another wide-angle zoom to the RF lineup sometime over the next month or two. Expect to see a Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM  as a little brother to the Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM.
    The Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM uses the product code 4857C005.
    Our Canon RF lens roadmap has had the RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM on it for quite some time.
    I don’t know the price at this time, but if I had to give a prediction, I’d say $1199-$1299 USD.

    Disappointing that they're not matching Nikon with 14-30 here, especially because in my view, if I'm out to 35 with a lens like this, I have the wrong lens on my camera. Makes my decision to stay with my 15-35 less challenging though... 1. Already have 2. 15mm 3. f/2.8. The size/weight benefit will not be enough for me to give up #'s 2 and 3.

    Ha, I just wrote out a whole comment to refresh and see 14-35.

    This sounds like an excellent lens that will make my life more difficult, since now I could swap my EF lens to get even wider. It's really a question between the 15-35 or the 14-35, of whether I want the wider aperture or wider lens.

    Had it been another 16-35, I would have had no real incentive to swap my EF version which has always worked great for me.

    YES! Been longing for this lens since I tried the RF 15-35 (2 copies, a rented one and a friends actually) and found that neither could match the sharpness of my existing EF 16-35 F/4 L IS, even at f/4. I am ready to replace that lens with an RF counterpart though and this one would be perfect if it is up to the task optically.

    The EF 16-35mm f4 IS was one of my favorite travel lenses.
    For travel I bring the TS-E 17 and the 11-24/4L for wide lenses.

    But I use the 16-35/4L IS around the house and for local outings, in fact it’s mounted on my EOS R (via adapter) right now. I would not have replaced it with an RF 15-35/4, but am tempted by the 14-35.

    Really excited about lens… my 16-35mm f4 is on my camera most of the when walking around the city. I use it for most of my landscape shots… and RF version with 14mm on the wide end within a reasonable price range ($1200ish) would be awesome!

    Though the $2200 15-35 2.8 is highly regarded… it isn’t worth the $1000 difference for my purposes.

    Please, please release this lense asap and make it available at a reasonable waiting period I've been waiting for this lense ever since I got my R (March 2019). I used the 16-35mm F4 which I loved! Now it's going to be even wider (yay ). I'd love to see it's weight reduced, but I think the RF 15-35mm F2.8 is actually heavier than the EF Version, so I don't have high hopes.
