Canon is going to continue and announce new RF glass during 2022, as they work to fill-out the lens lineup and catch up with the backlog of planned releases hampered by supply chain issues.
One of the rumored lenses to be announced has been on our roadmap for quite some time, and Canon should sell a ton of them.
Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro
Accessories



EW-65B
E-52II
LP1016



The second rumored lens is new to us, and it looks like it will be an affordable full-frame ultra-wide angle lens.
Canon RF 15-30mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
Accessories

EW-73E
E-67II

I would expect an announcement some time in the next week or three.

That creates a dilemma. 15-30mm f/3.5-5.6 or 16 f/2.8mm? If it’s under $400, has to be the zoom, no? Especially if landscape is the primary use.
Indeed a good question... I guess I woul go for the 15-30, but only if its also very small. For biking and hiking this lense could be great.
I dont care THAT much about the aperture in ultra wide angle lenses. The depth of field is very big, even with an 2,8 lense. And at f4 I often have enough light. So I think for me the bigger variety would trump the bigger aperture =)

The 24-105/4-7.1 is $400. I’d guess the 15-30mm will be $600. It could be higher. Still a bargain compared to the L-series UWA zooms.
