A list of upcoming RF lenses leaked over the web. And it looks very interesting for the EOS R system.

Canon Rumors posted what with some likelihood could be Canon’s upcoming RF lenses roadmap. A lot of lenses that seem to confirm Canon dedication to the EOS R system.

We will most probably see this two lenses first:

  • Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM – small size (like a Coke can), external zoom,
  • Canon RF 50mm f/1.8 STM – said to be optically better than the EF version and with a better build quality

Then, within 2021, these lense might get announced

  • Canon TS-R 14mm f/4L (a groundbreaking” autofocus tilt-shift lens)
  • Canon TS-R 24mm f/3.5L (another groundbreaking” autofocus tilt-shift lenses)
  • Canon RF 10-24mm f/4L USM
  • Canon RF 14-35mm f/4L IS USM
  • Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro
  • Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM
  • Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM
  • Canon RF 135mm f/1.4L USM
  • Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-7.1 IS USM
  • Canon RF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM
  • Canon RF 500mm f/4L IS USM
  • Canon RF 600mm f/4L IS USM
  • Canon RF 800mm f/5.6L IS USM
  • Canon RF 1200mm f/8L IS USM.

As you can see there is a lot of lenses coming to the EOS R full frame mirrorless system.

Canon Working On An RF 8-15mm f/4 Fish-eye Zoom Lens, Patent Suggests


A new Canon patent application suggests the company might have an interesting lens for the EOS R ecosystem up their sleeve.

Hi Lows Note spotted Canon patent application 2020-166234A (Japan), where optical formulas for an RF 8-15mm f/4 fish-eye lens are discussed. The lens seems to be pretty much the mirrorless counterpart to the EF 8-15mm f/4 fish-eye.

  • Zoom ratio: 1.85
  • Focal length: 8.10 12.51 15.01 mm
  • F number: 4.10 4.10 4.10
  • Half angle of view: 90.14 90.45 90.39
  • Image height: 11.50 18.00 21.60 mm
  • Lens length: 123.74 111.21 109.67 mm
  • Back focus: 11.78 20.27 24.66 mm

We think it’s very likely this lens will hit the market, sooner or later. Btw, it’s not the first patent for a fish-eye lens for EOS R.

More Canon patent applications are listed here. Some particularly interesting patent applications we think might get into production are these:

Canon EOS R6 Review (solid, dependable, full-frame MILC, ePhotozine)

Canon Eos R6 Review

  • 4K UHD 60/30/25/24fps
  • FullHD High-speed 120/100fps
  • HDR FullHD Video

The folks at ePhotozine posted their full Canon EOS R6 review. From their conclusion:

The Canon EOS R6 gives you a solid, dependable, full-frame mirrorless camera with all the familiar controls, and handling that feels good in the hand. You could easily pick up this camera, after using a Canon DSLR, and simply get on with using it. At the same time, you’re likely to be impressed by the rapid and reliable focus system, the improved continuous shooting speeds, and excellent image quality on offer. Noise performance is particularly impressive, with the camera retaining detail in images, even as the ISO speed increases.

The Canon EOS R6 feels like a complete and well-rounded camera. It feels extremely mature in every way we can think of. There’s no jagged edges or operational issues that spring to mind, and the camera delivers the goods when it comes to image quality, with Canon’s reliable colour reproduction. Combine that with an excellent AF system, with support for both humans and animals, and you have a camera that’s going to deliver great results time after time. In addition, you’ll be able to shoot at slower shutter speeds thanks to the in-body image stabilisation system, although you might not need to, as you can easily increase the ISO speed and still get great results.
