Copycat Rumors Happen, Exactly Like S*** Does

Here we have a wonderful example of copycat rumor. Read on.

A new rumor by Camera Insider claims Canon will release four prime lenses for the RF mount in 2024, these:

  • RF14mm F1.4L USM
  • RF24mm F1.4 L IS USM
  • RF28mm F1.4 L IS USM
  • RF35mm F1.4 L IS USM

The funny thing, this rumor is almost exactly the photocopy of another rumor posted almost one year ago by Canon Rumors (which, btw, never became true).

It’s very easy to understand what’s going on here. The listed lenses have a high likelihood to be released, sooner or later, for the mere fact that they are present in each and every lens lineup. It’s certain that Canon will release them. So why not suggesting they will get announced in 2023, then 2024, and if still not here, let’s suggest 2025. Easy peasy, isn’t it?

They call it educated speculation. I do not ¯\_ (ツ)_/¯

Take this as example for how the rumor industry works, what it is based upon.
