Canon RF100-300mm F2.8 L IS USM Coming Soon for $9499?

Sep 19, 2020
Canon's new RF100-300mm f/2.8 L IS USM is coming soon on 5channel. The price is expensive at $ 9499, but it seems to be a high-performance large-aperture telephoto zoom lens.

RF100-300mm F2.8 L IS USM: $9499 Lens Hood ET-124: $650

Lens Cap E-112: $25
And that.
It seems that a large aperture telephoto zoom lens that was not on the rumored lens list at Canon Rumors will appear. Since it is an anonymous bulletin board, it is not possible to confirm the authenticity of this information, but considering the flow so far, it is possible that the information comes from a highly reliable source.

It is very expensive at $ 9499, but I am curious what kind of lens it is finished. Many models of lenses that cost more than 100 million yen in RF mount were based on the optical system of EF lenses, but the 100-300mm f/2.8, which has no prototype for EF lenses, seems to be a completely new design. Similar lenses from Nikon and Sigma are posted for reference.
Both are zoom lenses for single-lens reflex cameras, and if Canon's new lenses really come out, they will be the world's first mirrorless lenses. It is attractive that it can be used as a 140-420mm F4 by attaching a teleconversion lens.
