More Canon RF Lenses to be Announced Next


After Canon announced Canon EOS R (B&HAdorama) and four new RF lenses: RF 35mm F1.8 Macro IS STMRF 50mm F1.2L USMRF 28-70mm F2L USM and RF 24-105mm F4L IS USM lens, more RF lenses are coming next. According to the latest rumors from CanonRumors, they think there are at least five new RF lenses to be announced.

Canon RF 14-24mm f/2.8L USM lens

The system will need a native ultrawide option and we think something like an RF 14-24mm f/2.8L USM is highly probable

Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM lens

The classic standard zoom in a smaller size and with IS. They think this is highly likely to be one of the next lenses announced and do think it’s possible to see a wider focal range.

Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

They’ll have to complete the classic trio of zoom lenses and an RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM is also extremely likely in 2019

Canon RF 70-135mm f/2L USM

They do not think the RF 28-70mm f/2L USM is the last f/2 zoom we’re going to see from Canon. A longer f/2 portrait zoom is on our wishlist.

Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 IS STM

They think a less expensive native 50mm option should be on the table, though it may come much later down the road.

They think the system is going to be populated by lots of “L” glass early on. This system is going to take a few years to mature and they don’t think any of the current lenses will be “high volume” out of the gate. It may be easier to get these types of lenses developed and manufactured early to have them for when mirrorless truly takes off in North America and around the world.
