The Nifty-Fifty (RF 50mm f/1.8 STM) for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system might be announced within days along with another RF lens.
Canon will also release the ET-83G (WIII) and ES-65B lens hoods.
Not the first time the Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L lens is rumored. Now, it seems Canon might release two versions of it.
Both versions of the RF 35mm f/1.2L might get released in the first half of 2021. A patent describing the optical formulas for the RF 35m f/1.2L has been spotted in the past and it is quite likely it refers to the upcoming lens.

We knew Canon was working on a Nifty-Fifty for the EOS R camera system. Now the Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 showed up at a certification authority.
Two lenses with SKUs 4514C005 and 4515C005 have been registered, and it seems 4515C005 refers to the upcoming Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM. The lens already got rumored, and a pertinent patent was spotted.
The Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM was rumored to get announced in 2020 but it looks as if it will come in 2021 unless Canon does another announcement session this year, which seems unlikely. And the other registered lens…?[via Nokishita]
We got a tip about a bunch of Canon RF mount lenses that Canon might announce in 2021.
Our source suggested that Canon is set to release three RF mount lenses within 2021:
- RF 70-135mm f/2L (previously rumored)
- RF 250mm f/2L
- RF 500mm f/2.8L
All in all the three lenses are at least plausible. We hope to learn more soon.
There are other RF mount lenses rumored to come in 2021:
- RF 18-45mm IS STM
- RF 24mm Macro IS
- RF 100-400mm IS USM
We can expect some more gear announcement by Canon within 2020.
It seems two different timeframes are to expect for announcements, one in August/September and another one towards November and December. However, to us it seems weird that Canon might announce gear in December, and August is almost over (but still rumored for announcements).
The gear Canon might announce:
- Two Cinema cameras with RF mount
- A new XC series camera
- A new XF series camera
- RF lenses
- One but possibly two new EOS M cameras (see here too) – One might be the EOS M50 Mark II the other the EOS M7
As we said, the timeframe for all these announcements seems to be a bit tight but everything is still possible.
