A new Canon rumor surfaced from the interweb of wet photography desires. Two 35mm f/1.2L lenses? Why not! One of them might be a “DS” version, like Canon did with the RF 85mm f/1.2L.

Without further ado, here is the rumor:

  • If the Canon RF 35mm F1.2L USM is released, it will likely become the best-selling L single focus lens. This lens has been rumored and anticipated since the RF mount’s inception five years ago.
  • A sales representative who sells Canon lenses to certain retailers in certain countries mentions the RF35mm F1.2 L USM and says that two models of this lens will be announced by the end of 2023. .
  • There are two models of the RF85mm F1.2L USM. You can get the “DS” version for a few hundred dollars more than the regular model. This function provides the effect of “improving” the blur.
  • Rumors about the release of such a lens have been going on for a long time, but this is the first direct information I’ve heard from someone I work with in the industry.

Canon Set To Release A New Version Of The RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS?

Canon RF 70-200mm F/2.8L IS Review

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?

The Canon EF 200-400mm F4L IS USM ×1.4 Might Get Discontinued Soon

EF 200-400mm

The Canon EF 200-400mm F4L IS USM ×1.4 might be on its way to be discontinued, Asians sources suggest.

The Canon EF 200-400mm F4L IS USM ×1.4 might get replaced by the RF 100-500mm f/4 IS, some sources claim. The RF 100-500mm might get announced in Q4 2023, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

The EF 200-400mm F4L IS USM ×1.4 is not that old for this class of lenses, it was released in 2013.

Canon Set To Release Up To 10 New RF/RF-S Lenses Within March 2024?

Another new Canon lens rumor by the usual suspects. Canon is now said to release 8-10 new RF/RF-S lenses before March 2024.

Absolutely no information about what lenses to expect. Says the source:

We expect at least 2 lenses to be announced later this month and possibly a second lens announcement later in 2023. We haven’t yet confirmed which lenses will be announced and when. Sources made it seem like there are a lot just waiting to be announced. We won’t pretend to fully understand the how’s, why’s and when’s of product announcements.

February 2024 is also the annual CP+ show in Yokohama, Japan, and Canon loves to show off new goodies on their home turf, a show we also expect Canon to show off a couple of new higher-end cameras.

We have been told to expect between 8-10 new RF/RF-S lenses between now and March of 2024.

It is clear to anyone who watches the industry that Canon will release a lot of new RF/RF-S lenses. They also said it in various interviews. So, not a real rumor, despite being sold as such.

Stay tuned.

Canon Might Announce The RF 200-500mm f/4L IS In Q4 2023, And For $15,999, Rumor

RF 200-500mm

Canon might be set to release the long rumored (!) RF 200-500mm f/4L IS lens sometimes during Q4 2023, i.e. soon.

The RF 200-500mm f/4L IS will come with hefty price tag, though. The rumored price is $15.999 – not everyone’s budget. Says the source of the rumor:

[RF 200-500mm f/4L IS] the will be the RF replacement for the highly-regarded EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM 1.4x. There will not be a built-in teleconverter in the RF version, which will help reduce weight, size and complexity, sadly its omission won’t reduce the price.

Do not waste time on rumors, use your time to go out and take pictures.

Canon Might Announce A New f/2 Zoom Lens For The RF Mount (in 2024)

Canon might have a new f/2 lens on their release radar. That’s what a new rumor suggests.

Says the source of the rumor:

We have been told that Canon is planning a second RF mount f/2 zoom to “compliment” the remarkable RF 28-70mm f/2L USM, which is one of the best zoom lenses ever made.

The source didn’t know the focal length of the rumored lens, but did say to expect it some time in the first half of 2024.

Not much to rant about. Rumors that suggests release dates so far away in most cases are educated speculation, or wishful thinking. Nice for the rumor and fun community but to be taken with truckloads of salt.

Forget silly rumors, go out and take pictures.
