Here is the rumor that that article was based on, from June 2019. I hope these RF 300 and 500 lenses will come soon, as they were originally slated to launch last year. It looks like the 400/600mm lens releases were not planned as of 2019, or at least not planned to come out before the 300/500mm lenses.Found this article about a rumoured 1.4x & 2x switchable built-in T.C https://www.digitalcameraworld.com/...x-and-2x-could-be-built-into-an-rf-300mm-lens
Perhaps could make new RF Great Whites with this:
RF 300mm D.O f/2.8 with 420mm f/4 and 600mm f/5.6
RF 400mm D.O f/4 with 560mm f/5.6 and 800mm f/8
RF 500mm D.O f/4 with 700mm f/5.6 and 1000mm f/8
RF 600mm D.O f/5.6 with 840mm f/8 and 1200mm f/11
RF 600mm D.O f/4 with 840mm f/5.6 and 1200mm f/8
I'd be keen on either the 300mm or 400mm ones as they'd be light enough for me to carry and hand hold
I would love to purchase the RF500 as a companion to the R3, especially if it is as lightweight as the rumors have led us to believe. Built-in teleconverter(s) on the 300 and/or 500mm lenses would be incredible.
"We’ve previously reported that Canon will be introducing an RF 500mm f/4L IS USM as their first super telephoto lens for the RF mount.
Now we’re hearing that an RF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM will also be launching sometime in 2020, and the source has claimed that this lens will come with a “new and unique” feature for super telephoto lenses, unfortunately, no details about this were given.
I think we’re going to see a lot more professional lens announcements in 2020 for the RF mount."
