    Nokishita has released a list of lenses to expect from Canon in 2020. Some we knew about, but a couple are new.
    Canon lenses coming in 2020

    Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 IS STM
    Canon RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS STM
    Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM
    Canon RF 100-500mm f/4.5-7.1L IS USM
    Canon RF 600mm f/11 DO IS STM
    Canon RF 800mm f/11 DO IS STM
    Canon RF 1.4x
    Canon RF 2.0x

    I can add to this information that both the RF 600mm f/11 IS STM and RF 800mm f/11 IS STM will be DO lenses as well.

    Seems like they are rounding out the budget oriented options for RF. And what a way to do it. Do making a comeback... as an entry level telephoto option. It sure makes sense to push the boundary in that direction. But f/11 is hard to swallow. The size will be intriguing.

    Also: A non L 50 mm lens! Can they make certain someone happy or will it be another tease? :ROFLMAO:

    On another note, if entry level telephoto means living with f/11, 20 MP on the R6 certainly begins to make sense. At 26 or 30 MP you're already scratching at or shooting beyond the diffraction limit. The stuff Canon is putting out here appears very much uncharacteristic for them to me. But it is exciting to know these pricings.

    With some announcements rumored to come this month, ahead of the body announcements in July, can we expect to hear more about these lenses soon?

    F11? It seems really........wierd. is it perhaps a comment on the performance of the new sensors? I mean. Even if the AF can work at f11 you would basically NEVER have enough light to shoot at f11 at that focal length. At least not for wildlife. Unless the new sensors are a major step above what we are used to.

    I don't know. There are people who use lenses like the 100-300mm 4.0-5.6 or 100-400mm 4.0-6.3 Panasonic lenses. These primes are equivalent on the long end in terms of field of view and noise.

    Obviously there will be compromises, but there is a market for compact-is telephoto equipment and the STM might indicate rather competitive pricing. And being primes could also allow for decent optical performance as long as one is aware of the sharpness compromise when used on anything but an R6.
