Very happy with the 24mm STM. It will pair perfectly with the 16mm in handheld video shooting. Let's see how much it will cost.

It should be more on the budget side as an STM non-L lens.
I just wish it had higher magnification for macro work, but otherwise it looks great.

I would have preferred to see the long -rumored 300mm and 500mm lenses, but it does not seem those are coming any time soon.

Anyone who has the audacity to complain about either of these lenses can get lost. Like. Really lost.

These are two more excellent budget options that will sell like hotcakes, no doubt at all. Slow zoom or not, depending on the price the 15-30 could be an incredible wide angle option on the low end. I remember when the 10-18 first got announced and there was massive hype for it, now there's a full frame version. The only reason I won't get one is I already have the 16-35mm and the RF 16mm!

I'll pre-order the 24mm immediately. It will be really nice having cheap and fast RF 16mm, 24mm, 34mm, and 50mm primes to choose from for when I don't need to bring my big L series zooms.

The 300/2.8, for sure. I wonder if we’ll see a true pancake like the EF 40/2.8? I generally stick to L lenses, but a pocketable ‘normal’ would be very useful.

A lot will depend on the price. How will it compare with the Tamron 15-30 f/2.8 IS, which only costs 900 dollars?1

Yaaaay! and Yaaaay!
But I wish there’s a programmable button on the camera to turn the lens into MF and the control ring into manual-focus ring while holding the button.
Else it’s uncomfortable especially when I use the control ring for aperture

the 15-30 is exactly the same length, diameter and weight of the 24-105 stm…Canon is being smart and probably making some manufacturing savings just like in the case of the RF 16 and 50

0.5 magnification on both of these - wonder who the 15-30 offended to be overlooked for a “macro” designation?

These both look pretty interesting. 15-30 looks very similar to the RF 24-105 and you'd imagine similar optical trade offs might have been made. Suspect it will be a very decent option for hiking, etc for those who can live with less than stellar corner performance.

Have never owned a 24mm prime personally but can see also see the appeal assuming IQ is up to that of say the RF 35mm.

Getting more and more difficult to complain about the RF mount options for the budget-focused consumers out there.

The 24 is virtually identical casing to the 35 f/1.8 as well. Only difference is 62.8mm vs 63.1mm long, which could be a bit of plastic on the end. Same filter size.

Wish Canon would make lenses built like the older 24 2.8, 35 2.8 and 85mm 1.8. Internal focus and not these extending designs.

The issue with those macro lenses without a focus limiter is that if they miss focus then it takes a long time to focus through the whole range

I prefer smaller lenses over internal focus. But I'm quite surprised that the 15-30 is heavier than Sony's G-master :(
It's probably because of the short focus distance (I admit I prefer that)

The 15-30 sounds like it will make a nice compact, inexpensive ultra-wide zoom, albeit a little slow on the aperture. But often, ultra-wides are shot stopped down anyway, so that makes it a pretty good alternative to its more expensive "L" brethren.

I think the 24/1.8 will be a big hit, both on full frame and on the new APS-C bodies like the R7 and R10. Should be fairly inexpensive, and if the 35/1.8 is any indication, pretty good quality as well.

Indeed, one would expect with a pro sports body (R3) Canon would be rapidly filling out the telephoto lineup. A modern 300 or 500/4.5 would pair nicely with the lightweight R3.

hahah This made me LOL. I'm still not a fan of any macro designation that's not 1.0x magnification.

I think there's still that gaping hole between the budget-focused and super "professional" L-grade lenses. Not everyone needs f/1.2, but f/1.4 and some quality build features, a lens hood and a decent pouch are appreciated. If only third party companies like Sigma could fill in that space for RF-mount w/o an adapter. :(
