Canon Lens Rumors

Is the ultimate astro lens coming? Another RF 14-21mm f/1.4L USM mention [CR2]

I have been told to expect a “world’s first” wide-angle zoom lens from Canon in the next few months, the official announcement date and shipping date are unknown at this time.

The source claims that a Canon RF 14-21mm f/1.4L USM is currently being tested by select photographers. We’ve seen a patent for such a lens in the past and I have heard mentions of this lens a few times over the last year or so.

There are a couple of other crazy lens designs I’ve heard about that I hope to let you all know about soon.

More to come…

First!

I'd buy it... if it doesn't cost what I think it's going to cost.

Holy shit... how heavy will this be?!
2-3kg?! And a price of 3-5k€!?
You don’t need 1,4f for Astro... better less coma etc.
hopefully with filter rear mount! (or body clip in filters)

Yes please! As I shoot a lot of northern lights, a fast shutter is critical to get the fine details in the aurora.

Shit, that's really expensive. But you are probably right...
My first though twas $2500USD. But it could be a lot more. I think the EF Sigma 14mm ART lens is $1700 still. It'll look like a steal with the filter adapter and a set of drop in filters for less than the cost of the zoom.

I want this! Really want it!
Today I'm using 20mm/1.4 and 14mm/1.8 and one lens that can do both.. aswell as faster at 14mm would be awesome for astro and Northern lights-shooting! :D

I really want this lens. I am guessing that it will be at least $3,500usd since the RF 15-35 f2.8L is about $2,200usd now.
I love how Canon is really busy innovating and bringing us great products! Unreal.

Sign me up, no doubt. I’d imagine this will be more than the 28-70, I’d guess $3499.

How about f/1.4 and low coma characteristics?

Who doesn’t need f/1.4 for Astro? You? Personally, I found f/2.8 to be too slow. I’ll decide what I need/want all on my own. Thanks.
