There have been a few rumors that Canon will do a “holy trinity” of RF mount f/2L zoom lenses, as you know, we already have the RF 28-70mm f/2L USM, which is an amazing piece of glass.
An unknown source now claims that an RF 14-28mm f/2L USM is on the way sometime in 2020, this goes with a previous rumor of an RF 70-135mm f/2L USM coming as well.
That would be quite the trifecta of zoom lenses from Canon.
More to come…

I demand a 70-200 f/2L with dual card slots.

Dual card slots on the camera is not safe enough. Customers demand dual dual redundancy and backup. With the new RF mount boasting extra data bandwidth, it can send the files straight to the lens card slots. Brilliant idea.

Now that's a great idea but would they be immune to the virus?

My goodness! Who could have imagined an f/2 zoom trinity 3 years ago? Gonna take me years and years to complete the set. Godspeed, men. Godspeed.

A trinity line with IS and another trinity line of F2..

I feel bad for Nikon and Sony shooters.. Neither is even an option for them.

If this trinity does come to fruition, it won't be these first two that tempt me - but a possible 70-135 f2 portrait zoom would be very tantalizing.

Yes, but think of the vignetting. Oh, the horror! :eek:
For what I personally do with my gear I have yet to find a single lens where vignette is a problem. It is either corrected very well in camera or it is an effect I desire in the photo. But yes, some will find it to be terrible for their use.

Well, there goes all the Nikon shooters who dissed the 11-24 f/4 saying they far prefer the 14-24mm f/2.8

I know there are folks that love themselves some bokeh. I'm not one of them. Ansel Adams and the rest of the f64 school have got to be rolling in their graves. Minimum $9,000 for this "trinity" that doesn't go past 135mm doesn't tempt me. I'd much rather have a big white if I could afford that kind of money.

I love my single big white, for it's purpose but the 11-24 gives me no regrets.

I have the 11-24 f/4 L lens....and it is great fun.

This new RF lens sounds interesting, but I'm wondering why they aren't going as wide at the older EF lens?

Would it just be too big or something to do 11-24 at f/2?
