Most anticipated of this list for me would be the 14-35 f4 IS.

Biggest question in my mind is price and color of the 100-400 with the 7.1 at the long end, I think it's reasonable to debate whether or not that'll be a "L" lens. Either way though I'd hope to see a modest price tag.

Can someone explain to the
  • Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro
What would this lens be best used for and what types of shot will this lens be effective for? Portraits up close? Landscape? Macro of flowers and bugs? Please help. want to learn about lenses and uses and how this in future could be paired with r5 camera.Thanks

Dissapointed that they don't plan an 85mm 1.4. 85mm f2 doesn't seem as sharp and 1.2 is too expensive, loud and large :/
I don't know where you have that information from, but the 85 F/2 is very sharp wide open (in fact, about as sharp as the 85 EF 1.4 at f/2; I did a test since I have both of these lenses).

There's always room for an RF 1.4 version of course but I can imagine that for now they spend their resources and address other focal lengths.

Still holding out hope for a 24-70F4 L IS!

Me too. I prefer landscape and outdoors photography. An f2.8 is too expensive, and I don’t need the weight. Had I been in the mirrorless market right now, I would be getting a Z6 II as that with the Nikkor S f4 is just $100 more than just the R6 body. Of course many other considerations.

The 1200mm f8 is interesting, I wonder what, if anything, it will offer over the 600 f4 and tc? I’d expect it to be a very hard sell given its price which I would estimate to be close to breaking the $20,000 barrier.

The EF 24-70f4L IS is still pretty compact and affordable even with the adapter. So there is always that to fall back on if they wait a while to put out an RF version. Although the 24-104 F4 L RF lens is pretty small and well reviewed. So we have options, which is good.

I'll say it again, we need some wide astro love! R5 is sooo good for low light... Canon teased with 14-21 F1.4 and 14-28 F2...
I don't like the Sigma 14mm F1.8, for bad coma and too narrow use case... Canon to the rescue!!!
