Here we have a wonderful example of copycat rumor. Read on. A new rumor by…
New year, new Canon rumor. A new RF mount lens might be on the horizon. Canon might be set to announce the Canon RF-S 11-22mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens in the first quarter 2023, a rumor suggests.
Say the source of the rumor:
Canon will likely release at least three RF-S lenses in 2023, a couple of them will likely be based on their EF-M counterparts.
One of the lenses we’re told that will launch in the first half of 2023 is an RF-S 11-22mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM. The EF-M version was a favourite of EOS M shooters since it was launched. It really is a very good lens, especially at its price point.
We think the rumor might be reliable. Time will tell. I own the EF-M 11-22mm and can confirm it is a little gem of a lens. If the RF mount version follows its footsteps, then it might have the following specs:
- 18-35mm (35mm Equivalent)
- Aperture Range: f/4.5-32
- Two Aspherical Elements, One UD Element
- Dynamic Image Stabilization
- Spectra Coatings
- Built-In Stepping Motor
