Two more lenses from our long-standing RF lens roadmap are up next from Canon. There has been further confirmation from Nokishita that Canon will announce an RF 16mm f/2.8 and an RF 100-400mm telephoto zoom lens. Neither lens will be an L lens and should be quite affordable.
I’m not sure at this time if the 16mm f/2.8 will be a pancake lens, as I continue to receive that question a lot.
More to come…

An RF full frame 16mm f/2.8 pancake would be a fabulous lens if they can make a wide lens like that so compact, no doubt they can, or it wouldn't have been mentioned by CR

Too late, I already ordered the Laowa 15mm F2 last week.
I hope, the 24 RF will show up soon enough. Otherwise, I will go with Sigma.

Any price speculation on the 16 f/2.8? Is $500 or less just crazy talk?

My guess is that it will be around €600, which matches your $500 guess, hopefully without starting yet another sales tax/VAT/warranty argument :)

Give me the IQ of the G2 150-600 or better in the non L 100-400 and I'm in. This should be a slam dunk.

It would be nice if Canon began shipping some of these RF lenses. Most of them are on back order and I've been waiting for weeks to receive my RF 100 f2.8 Macro

The non L 100-400 seems to replace EF-s 55-250mm for RP and the new cheap FF model.

Oh hell, we can't even get whipped cream cheese. The world is short of most everything, camera gear is waaaaaay down on the list.

I highly doubt that a 16mm f/2.8 FF lens with the flange distance of 20 mm can be a pancake.

That’s unfortunate. I ordered mine on 8/15 and it was delivered 8/25. Lucky timing on Amazon (they show In Stock Soon when Canon notifies them to expect a shipment). Next time you see a stock notice pop up here or on CPW, check Amazon and Best Buy. For the last 100-500 bolus in mid-August, B&H didn’t get enough to fill their preorders, but Best Buy had them in stock for a few days.
