Here Is An Updated Canon RF Lens Roadmap For The Next 2 Years

RF Lens Roadmap

A lot of lenses coming for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera system. Here is an updated Canon RF lens roadmap.

Canon Rumors summed up all the latest and older rumors about RF mount lenses in a neat list. Here is the RF Lens roadmap:

Canon RF Tilt-Shift Lenses (first to have AF):

  • Canon TS-R 14mm f/4L
  • Canon TS-R 24mm f/3.5L

Canon RF Zoom Lenses:

  • Canon RF 10-24mm f/4L USM
  • Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM
  • Canon RF 18-45mm f/4-5.6 IS STM
  • Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM (announced 11/4, 2020)
  • Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-7.1 IS USM

Canon RF Prime Lenses:

Canon RF Macro Lenses:

  • Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro
  • Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

Canon RF Super Telephoto Lenses:

  • Canon RF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM
  • Canon RF 500mm f/4L IS USM
  • Canon RF 600mm f/4L IS USM

  • Canon RF 1200mm f/8L IS USM

The list is obviously not complete and might well change over time. Not all of these lenses can be expected to be released in 2021. And there is a global pandemic going on, affecting supply chains and manufacturing.

Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM Lens Diagram Leaks, Shows A Newly Designed Lens

Canon Rf 50mm F/1.8 STM Review

An image of the upcoming Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM already leaked, now we also have the lens diagram.

The leaked lens diagram shows a lens based on a new design, and not simply adapted from the EF 50mm f/1.8 STM. The RF 50mm f/1.8 is a nice and small pancake lens and I am pretty sure it will sell like hot cake (if it has the same reasonable price as the EF 50mm f/1.8).

We expect the Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM to be announced within a few days.
