We said we wouldn’t mention the RF 35mm L again, until we had more solid information and what we deem to be solid confirmation. We are comfortable enough with what we have seen to say the wait looks to be coming to an end. We have been told that Canon will announce the RF 35mm

Not enough differentiation with the RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro. Think about all of the "pairs". They really should go with f/1.2 to keep with their own pattern:
50mm f/1.8 STM - 50mm f/1.2L USM
85mm f/2 IS STM Macro - 85mm f/1.2L USM
600mm f/11 IS STM - 600mm f/4L IS USM
800mm f/11 IS STM - 800mm f/5.6L IS USM

=> 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro - 35mm f/1.2L USM

Ah I see, I don’t own a camera body from that list so I didn’t know. That said, I feel like having that enabled on a new lens is table stakes at this point and not headline worthy.
I agree, but you can’t really say something new about L lenses: good IQ, build quality and AF. And weight is only mentioned if its predecessor was too heavy :)

I suspect that the focus breathing correction takes no extra effort to implement, it’s a side effect from having the lens correction profile stored in the lens.

I thought that 2024 will be expensive year for me. Was going to buy R5 Mark II 62 mp and RF 35mm f 1.2 L but it seems that they offer R5 Mark II (45mp) and 35mm f 1.4 lens.

No deal. No big enough upgrade from R5 and 35mm f 1.8. Sorry.
Quality wise, I expect a huge mechanical and optical upgrade from the f 1,8.
And the R5 II could have a bit more to offer than just the same 45 MP...

Why is that we have to accept F6.3 and F7.1 RF lenses (compared to F5.6) because of better high ISO performance of modern sensors but 35mm 1.4 is not enough and we want F1.2? This is not a portrait lens, i rather have something more portable.
