Canon continues to work on new zoom lens ideas for the RF mount according to this JPO patent, I can only see one lens below that makes sense for a consumer product, and that's the Canon RF 24-70mm f/4 optical design.

Now hidden in here is an optical formula for what looks to be an APS-C RF mount optical design. The Canon RF 15-70mm f/4-7.1 has an image height that differs significantly from the other 4 optical designs, suggesting it's for a smaller sensor. Please correct me if I'm wrong on that assumption.
