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.
