A new Canon rumor concerning RF-mount lenses. Three of them, all primes.

Latest murmuring has it that Canon might release three wide angle “L” lenses for the RF-mount. Says the source of the rumor (emphasis mine):

[…] Canon actually plans to launch 3 wide angle L prime lenses from the RF mount in the first half of 2023. One of the lenses will be the RF 35mm f/1.2L (or f/1.4) and an RF 24mm f/1.4L USM. The third lens is unknown at this time, though [it might be] an L 28mm prime lens

The RF 35mm f/1.2L is rumored since a long time. No surprise since it is a lens Canon will release for sure, sooner or later. All three lenses will for sure be announced sooner or later. Maybe it will happen in the first half of 2023.

Stay tuned.

AstrHori 12mm F2.8 Fisheye Lens For RF Mount Coming (leaked images)?

AstrHori 12mm

Another third party lens rumor today. And as almost 100% of the rumors that get sold to you, it comes from Weibo. They’re just not telling you, usually, all those serious rumor sites that always forget to mention where they got a rumor ;-)

An AstrHori 12mm F2.8 Fisheye lens for the Canon RF mount might be announced soon, according to a rumor surfaced on Weibo. These are the specifications:

  • 11 elements in 8 groups
  • 5 blades
  • 180 degree angle of view
  • 0.2m~∞
  • 100×90mm 757.5g
  • Compatible with E / L / RF / Z mount

Here are some pictures of the AstrHori 12mm F2.8 Fisheye lens.

YONGNUO Might Release Lenses For Canon Cameras, Rumor Has It


Interesting Canon rumor coming from Asia. YONGNUO might be set to soon release a lens for the Canon RF mount.

An image shared by CameraBeta shows EXIF information suggesting a YN35mm F1.4 UWM was used on a Canon EOS R6 body (see image above). Interesting.

While this would be one of the very few third party lens for the RF mount. However, if it is an autofocus lens (it seems) then the question is how Yongnuo has solved the patent infringement issues Canon already raised with Viltrox.

Let me know what your thoughts are.

And Yet Another Canon Rumor: Camera Between R7 And R10 Coming?

Here is another wave in the recent flood of Canon rumors. Canon might be set to announced an EOS R model that sits between the EOS R7 and EOS R10.

Quoting the source (emphasis mine):

[…] latest bit of information […] is a new camera body coming that will fit between the Canon EOS R7 and Canon EOS R10 in the lineup from a price standpoint. We don’t think that this is going to be a similar product placement as we had seen with DSLRs and the EOS 77D. We think that the EOS R8/EOS R9 (guessing on the name) will have a different form factor and could possibly see the omission of a built-in viewfinder, but those are just guesses at this point.

“EOS R8” is very unlikely in our opinion. Time will tell. All Canon rumors are listed here.

These Two Canon EOS Cinema Cameras Might Get Announced In 2023

Cinema EOS C200

New week, new rumor. Canon might announce two new EOS Cinema cameras in 2023, the Canon Cinema EOS C200 Mark II and Canon Cinema EOS C700 Mark II.

According to the source, the Canon Cinema EOS C200 Mark II might come ahead of NAB 2023, and a new C700 series camera before IBC 2023 in September. These are the rumored specifications:

Canon Cinema EOS C200 Mark II

  • Same Super 35 4K DGO sensor as the C70 / C300 Mark III
  • RF mount
  • 4K up to 120 frames
  • Cinema RAW Light, XF-AVC and MP4 recording options
  • 2x SD UHS-II V90 media slots
  • A modular box design, somewhat similar of the Panasonic BS1H camera
  • HDMI Type A and 12G-SDI outputs
  • The multi-function hot shoe is included for an external XLR module

Canon Cinema EOS C700 Mark II

  • User swappable sensors with two offerings at launch: a Super 35 5K Global Shutter sensor and a Full Frame 8K DGO Rolling Shutter sensor
  • Both sensor blocks are equipped with a direct RF mount, which can be topped by an EF or LPL mount without the need to remove the RF mount (the whole mount can be assembled on top of the RF mount and mounted to the camera, like Sony did with the VENICE 2)
  • Introduction of two new gamma curves: Canon Log 4, designed for HDR productions; and Wide DR Cine, designed for cinematic colors straight out of camera
  • 2x CFExpress Type B cards and 1x SD card media slots
  • This will be the most CODEC heavy from Canon: XF-AVC, ProRes and Cinema RAW Light can be recorded internally; BRAW and ProRes RAW externally with the Blackmagic VideoAssist and Atomos Ninja+; Cinema RAW with the Codex CDX-36150; and a new module/recorder developed in partnership with RED Digital Cinema to record REDCODE to a proprietary media
  • 4x SDI outputs for different monitoring workflows
  • Camera design is somewhat closer to the C300 Mark III/C500 Mark II design, although a little bit bigger to acomodate the extra I/O terminals
  • This camera prototype is already out on the field being tested
