An earlier report had it as an f/2-4. I would really like a 15-45, even if it is f/2.8-4. I really hope that Canon has gotten over the obsession with 60.9mm overall lens diameter. I have both the Sigma 16 f/1.4 and 30 f1.4 lenses. Both are over 60.9mm in diameter, with the 16 being well over. Both work well on my M5 with a 270EX flash but would probably block the internal flash of an M6-2 or M200, especially if their lens hoods are installed.

Are you happy with your Sigma lenses, I was thinking of getting one or both.

Each? Certainly not for all three and probably not individually.

Sorry, but I'm not buying this rumor. Not f/2 lenses. F/2.8 might be possible but I'll believe it when I see it.

As for the 7D replacement. Wide angle and even standard focal lengths aren't what sells the 7D. A 100-500 f/8 is more attractive, but the RF mount doesn't work on EF-M.

I do believe there is a chance that's the price of all 3.

The 22 f/2 is $249.

So that gives you $750 for the other 2 combined. I can see a 15 f/2 being similarly priced to the 32 f/1.4 and the 52 f/2 priced somewhere between the 22 and 32 and coming in close to that $750 combined.

The 22 was an exceptional deal being introduced as a kit lens with a simple design. The 32 goes for $480 and there is no reason to believe that the rumored 16, 52 or 62 would cost any less. It's good to be optimistic though...

Absolutely
I like the prospects of an f/2 prime trinity that you can have for under $1000 USD.

15mm f/2
22mm f/2
52mm f/2
Absolutely agree! Great for a lightweight video/gimbal setup. Although I'd probably use the Sigma 56 for portraiture. I do love my f/2 Fujicrons. Great alongside a flash for events and so light on the body.

As we are going to have 12 - 20fps FF cameras ,would aps-c on Rf system be a worth option?
For telephotography and for macro-photography probably yes. They might benefit from greater magnification (longer reach for telephoto and greater magnification for macro). But even then, a higher pixel density FF will provide the same (albeit at a higher price point).
For general photography: certainly no.

I can think of one good reason why the 52 would cost less than the 32 - it's rumored to be f/2 not f/1.4.

If the R5 is as rumored and has 1.3X and 1.6X crops, I plan to use it as a replacement for my 7D. It would also give me a FF camera with twice the pixel count of my 5D3, not that I would use it FF very often. I'm one of those who thinks that, most of the time, 20-24MP are "enough". I may not order the R5 until after the R6 specs are fully revealed.

X1.3, x1.6 crop mode in R5. i would love to learn about this feature. i am presently shopping for a low mileage Canon 400/2.8 lens. This piece of information is important to me. Thank you.

The crops were my guess, not "information", based on the fact that the 5Ds has both crop modes.
++++ If the R5 is as rumored and has 1.3X and 1.6X crops, I plan to use it as a replacement for my 7D.

A.M: so.. it has not been rumoured but is a your understanding. Ok.

I have never heard of x1.3, x1.6 crops in 5DS either. Pardon my ignorance. Please enlighten me. Thank you.
