Canon might be set to release a mark II version of the RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens. Might be.

A new rumor surfaced from the interweb of wishes and desires. It says Canon might soon release a new version of the RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens for the EOS R camera system.

Says the source of the rumor:

[…] have been told that a lot of Canon sports shooters have stuck with their EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM II or III for its internal zoom, even if they’re not in love with using an adapter. We have learned since yesterday that a lot of sports shooters find the current RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM quite unbalanced and lacks a “consistency in feel”. A few mentioned that the locations of the rings were difficult to get used to, and felt “cramped”.

So, that would be the reason for Canon to release a new version of the RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS. Why not.

Your thoughts?
