Any word on if/when we can expect an RF 14-35 f/4 L?

I recall discussion here a while backyards, but not much since. Just wondering if anybody with more knowledge than I had heard or seen anything.

Nokishita said it's the next lens announcement. They posted it an hour ago.

Looks like they took the increased wiggle room in design between the f/2.8 and f/4 aperture to concentrate on making it wider by 1mm. I'm betting it isn't that much smaller than the f/2.8 as a result. That lens didn't need to be much smaller as it was.

Personally, the f/2.8 is my 2nd-most-used RF lens after the 100-500. Not sure an extra mm would do much for me. If I need to get super wide, I'll use a prime with a much faster aperture. The Sigma 14mm f/1.8 is still great as adapted.

Seems there will be something other than 1mm and 1 stop to distinguish it from the 15-35. Like a substantial reduction in cost, weight, or size. Otherwise it will be rather redundant.

I assume pricing will be the big motivator. For example, the 70-200 f/2.8 is $2,699 vs $1,599 for the f/4.
