Update: Here are the first specifications and images of the upcoming Canon EOS R and RF mount lenses.
We finally have the full list of gear that Canon will announce on September 5, 2018.
Canon announcements for September 5, 2018
- Canon EOS R body
- Canon EOS R w/24-105mm f/4L IS USM kit
- Canon BG-E22
- Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM
- Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM
- Canon RF 28-70mm f/2L USM
- Canon RF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM
- Canon EF-M 32mm f/1.4 STM
- Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM
- Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM
- The lens may have a different name, no confirmation yet.
- M (or Mount) adapter R?
- Since only “M.ADAP R” “M.ADAP R ND” “M.ADAP R PL” is written in the simple order form, the official name is unknown
- PD – E1 is also included in the accessory list
We've been told by various people that preorders won't be available immediately with the announcements.
The lack of an EF mount adapter strongly suggests the new camera will be able to natively mount EF lenses.
The lack of an IS designation on standard lenses suggests IBIS.
L USM lenses are consistent with a serious, high end offering.
No CR3 tag, so presumably this remains a rumor. If this rumor turns out to be true, there will be plenty of crow to be served on these forms.
This camera must be really amazing if they think people will pay >1k $ for lenses for it. 28-70 F2 and 50 F1.2 are definitely not going to be typical prosumer lenses when it comes to price range.
Yes, these seem to be adapters to mount R lenses on other mounts. Everything points to EF lenses mounting directly on the new camera.
35 M IS is interesting. Is this a macro with additional lens IS to complement IBIS?
What's this a macro lens? why the only RF lens with IS ?
Ha bks54 you beat me to it :D
Blimy that's put the cat among the pigeons!! and explains why no new 50 for too long
Please let this camera have rear controls like the 7/5 series!
Canon has generated more excitement by keeping silent than Nikon did with their cheesy zzzzz teasers.
Or it will come later so the price of early adoption will have to include at least one lens?
The EF Macro lenses (100L and 24-70L and maybe others) have hybrid IS (at least I think that's what the called it), where it compensates for side-to-side movements as well as angular movements. I think the point being that a tiny side-to-side movement makes a big difference when you're viewing a tiny object at a huge scale, but only makes a tiny difference when viewing a normal object at a normal scale.
I guess perhaps it has angular in-body stabilisation, and the macro lenses add the side-to-side?
Total guess though!
