Canon RF 1200mm f/8L IS Lens Specifications Leaked

Rf 800mm Rf 1200mm

We expect Canon to announce the RF 1200mm f/8L IS on February 24, 2022, along with other gear. The specifications have already leaked.

Here are the specifications as summed up by digicame-info:

  • It maintains almost the same weight as the RF600mm F4 IS USM.
  • Using two large-diameter fluorite, one super ED lens, and one ED lens, excellent resolution and contrast are achieved from the open. The UD lens is placed in the rear group to suppress the increase in chromatic aberration during close-up photography.
  • Extremely lightweight and highly portable. The front group of the optical system is the same as RF600mm F4L.
  • The shortest shooting distance is 4.3m.
  • Image stabilization for 4 steps of effect. Three IS modes. Mode 1 that always corrects when looking through the viewfinder, mode 2 that supports panning, and mode 3 that corrects only when the shutter is released.
  • Adopts SSC (Super Spectra Coating) and ASC (Air Sphere Coating) to minimize ghosts and flares.
  • It supports 1.4x teleconverters and 2x teleconverters, and can extend the focal length to 1680mm F11 and 2400mm F16.
  • The focus ring can be customized, and 3 types of speed can be selected during MF.
  • With two focus presets, you can quickly recall two focus positions.
  • The aperture blades have nine circular apertures to achieve beautiful bokeh.
  • Dust-proof and drip-proof design, fluorine coating on the front lens.

A PDF with the full description of the RF 1200mm f/8L IS also leaked. Here it is:

The Rumored RF 5.2mm Lens Seems To Be A Dual Fisheye VR Lens

A few days ago we got a rumor suggesting Canon might be set to release a RF 5.2mm f/2.8 lens. Today we know a bit more.

As Nokishita added to their original rumor, the RF 5.2mm f/2.8 lens might indeed be a dual fisheye lens for VR (virtual reality) applications:

The product category of canon’s RF 5.2mm f/2.8 L Dual Fisheye seems to be a VR lens.

There is more. Months ago a Canon patent application was spotted that seems to be related to the rumored RF 5.2mm lens. The patent application P2021-51282A (Japan) discusses optical formulas for a stereo lens for a full frame mirrorless camera. From the patent literature:

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a small lens device that can obtain a natural stereoscopic effect by setting an appropriate length of a base line.

SOLUTION: A lens device (200) includes: a first optical system (201R); a second optical system (201L) arranged in parallel to the first optical system; and a lens mount unit (202) attachable to a camera body, the first and second optical systems each having a first optical axis (OA1), a second optical axis (OA2), and a third optical axis (OA3) in order from an object side to an image side. A distance (L1) between the first and second optical systems is larger than a dimeter (φD) of the lens mount unit, and a distance (L2) between the third axes of the first and second optical systems is smaller than the dimeter (φD) of the lens mount unit.

A RF 5.2mm f/2.8 lens for the EOS R full frame mirrorless system. Interesting times ahead.

Is Canon Set To Release a RF 5.2mm f/2.8 Lens?

Not sure if this is a typo or if it is real. Canon might release a RF 5.2mm f/2.8 lens for the EOS R system, a usually very reliable rumor source suggests.

Nokishita tweeted that Canon might be set to release a RF 5.2mm f/2.8 lens. A fish-eye lens, I guess. Nokishita says:

Canon’s next RF lens will be 5.2mm f/2.8L. Check Canon’s latest accessory list for unreleased lens caps 5.2.

As far as I know, such a lens has never been rumored. What do you think? Real, or something got lost in translation?

Rf 16mm F/2.8 STM Review

Courtesy of Nokishita, Here it is:

RF16mm F2.8 STM

Compact, versatile, speedy and affordable, the new RF16mm F2.8 STM lens is a terrific complement to any
EOS R series digital camera. Offering an ultra-wide angle of view and a bright f/2.8 aperture, it’s an
excellent choice whether taking interior photos in tight spaces, seeking out the perfect landscape, or as the
perfect webcam lens when used in combination with an EOS camera and EOS Webcam Utility on a video
call. With a 16mm F2.8 lens, you can experiment with enhancing perspectives, capturing starscapes, or with
the close focusing distance of 13cm, get up close to your subject while still keeping the background more
visible. Video users will find this ultra-wide lens a natural for vlogging, especially with its supremely light
weight.
With its remarkable combination of optical excellence and refined performance, all in a small package that’s
easy to bring most anywhere, the RF16mm F2.8 STM is a stellar companion to any EOS R series digital
camera.

RF100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM

Perfect for wildlife, sports, travel and more, the RF100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM is a compact, lightweight
telephoto lens for EOS R Series cameras, offering a versatile zoom range that brings subjects closer with
ease. The RF100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM is similar in size to the EF 70-300mm F4.5-5.6 IS II USM lens, but
not only reaches to 400mm, but also has fast Nano USM focusing and up to 6 stops of Coordinated IS when
used in combination with an EOS R series camera featuring In-body Image Stabilization like the EOS R5
and EOS R6, or 5.5 stops with an EOS R/RP camera. Using a single Ultra Low Dispersion lens element
towards the front of the lens group corrects chromatic aberration throughout the entire zoom range, making
your images look crisp and colorful with minimal color blur. The RF100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM lens can also
accept both the RF1.4x and RF2x tele extenders giving you the effective maximum focal length of 560mm
and 800mm respectively. With a control ring that allows for quick setting changes, including shutter speed
and aperture, the RF100-400mm F5.6-8 IS USM lens puts quality, convenience and control in your hands.

DM-E1D

The Stereo Microphone DM-E1D is a compact microphone accessory for compatible EOS cameras that
include the multi-function shoe. The Stereo Microphone DM-E1D easily mounts to the multifunction
hotshoe creating a digital connection to the camera. This means that no internal battery or cable connecting
the mic to the camera’s mic port are required, helping you utilize the mic longer and also no impediment in
using the vari-angle screen to its full range. It features a number of directional controls to suit the
environment and your shooting needs. Shotgun mode keeps audio focused on a subject directly in front of the
camera, such as when interviewing someone for a documentary. Stereo (90°/120°) mode captures audio over
a wide area for more ambient sound, ideal for nature scenes or entire orchestras. Adjusting the mic controls
is as simple as pressing the menu button on the back of the microphone and using the touchscreen LCD on
the back of the EOS camera to change settings. Whether you’re looking to capture an interview, record a
concert or simply capture the sights and sounds of nature, the Stereo Microphone DM-E1D pairs
wonderfully with a compatible EOS digital camera to help you achieve impressive audio.

AD-E1

For a seamless transition from your current hot shoe accessories to the multi-function shoe, the
Multi-Function Shoe Adapter AD-E1 is the answer. The Multi-Function Shoe Adapter AD-E1 provides a
reliable connection for dust and drip proof Speedlite accessories that you may already own such as the
Speedlite EL-1, Speedlite 600EX II-RT, Speedlite 600EX-RT, Speedlite 580EX II, ST-E3-RT or OC-E3 flash
cord. The shoe adapter will also hold current accessories such as shotgun mics and on-camera LED panels
securely to the camera body with dual locking pins on the multi-function shoe side.

ST-E10

For wireless Speedlite setups requiring one or more off-camera flashes, the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E10
delivers a transmitter compatible with EOS cameras that include the multi-function shoe. Since this
transmitter maintains a digital connection to the camera through the shoe, it does not require batteries,
making the design approximately 30% smaller and approximately 50% lighter (than the ST-E3-RT II).
Controlling and changing the 5 independent groups across 15 Speedlites is as easy as pressing the menu
button located on the transmitter and adjusting the settings from the vari-angle touchscreen on the back of
the camera, or with the flash setting screen when using the Canon Camera Connect app on your smartphone.
With full flash control at your fingertips, the Speedlite Transmitter ST-E10 is an indispensable tool for
advanced, professional flash photography.
