A new rumor, about the Canon RF 300mm f/2.8L IS lens. Is it coming? The EF version is discontinued.

A rather confident rumor suggests that Canon might be close to announce the Canon RF 300mm f/2.8L IS lens. Says the source of the rumor:

[…] Canon has prototypes out in the wild and that the lens is a ground-up redesign of the focal length.

[…] weight has been reduced by almost 40% and  the length by as much as 30% over it’s EF predecessor, though they didn’t have the exact dimensions and weight to give us.

The lens is rumored to get announced at the beginning of 2023.

Stay tuned.

Upcoming Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L Lens Said To Be Postponed, Again

I do not like this kind of rumors. Rumors born out of the fact that it is very likely that Canon will release a given lens (or gear). It’s the case with the Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L lens for the EOS R system.

There is no doubt this lens will come to EOS R system, sooner or later. So why not start a rumor? Says the source of the rumor:

[it had been] reported that it would be announced in 2021, and then in 2022, and now we are told that the lens has been pushed back to 2023. We’re not exactly sure why the lens has been pushed back, but I think that we can assume as to why, and we’re tired of typing the reasons!

I guess the reasons are the usual supply chain issues, mother of all issues. So, after having been rumors for 2021 (with a certain confidence), now the Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L is a 2023 affair. See here all Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L rumors listed since their beginning. There is also a patent referring to the lens.

Stay tuned.

It seems that two new Canon RF mount lenses might get announced very soon. Vendors appear to have them already added to listings.

According to the rumor, Canon might announce two new RF mount lenses very soon, the Canon RF 15-30mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM and Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 MACRO IS STM. Images of both lenses allegedly in vendor listings appeared on Imgur. Here they are:

Both images above could be faked, but we believe they are real and that both lenses will get announced soon.

The complete list of upcoming Canon gear is this one:

  • Canon EOS R100
  • RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM
    / EW-73E
    / E-67II
  • RF 24mm F1.8 MACRO IS STM
    / EW-65B
    / E-52II
    / LP1016
  • EW-73E
  • RF 135mm F1.8 L USM (expected 2022 Q4

Is Canon Set To Announce RF 15-30mm IS STM and RF 24mm f/1.8

Rf Mount Eos R6 Mark Ii Rf 300mm Rf 35mm Canon Eos R100 Rf 24mm F/1.8 Rf-s Canon Eos R7 Eos R100 Canon High Resolution Eos R R10 Eos C5 Canon Eos R1 Eos R5c Canon Rf 16mm Rf 35mm F/1.2L EF Lenses Tilt-shift Lenses Rumor

A new rumor with uncertain reliability surfaced from the deep corners of the interweb. Two new lenses are rumored: RF 15-30mm IS STM and RF 24mm f/1.8.

The rumor originated on 5channel, an anonymous bulletin board. The full list of rumored gear:

  • RF15-30mm IS STM (f number unknown)
    • EW-73E
    • E-67II
  • RF24mm F1.8
    • EW-65B
    • E-52II
    • LP1016
  • EW-73E

The lenses seem to be for full frame imaging sensors and might be budget lenses, given that they are driven by STM. Hard to say if this comes from an insider or is just bs spread on an anonymous forum. It has to be said that there are two Canon patents that seem to refer to these lenses. The patent applications refer to a RF 24mm f/1.8 and an RF 16-30mm f/4-5.6.

Any idea?
