Canon Might Announce The RF 200-500mm f/4L IS In Q4 2023, And For $15,999, Rumor

RF 200-500mm

Canon might be set to release the long rumored (!) RF 200-500mm f/4L IS lens sometimes during Q4 2023, i.e. soon.

The RF 200-500mm f/4L IS will come with hefty price tag, though. The rumored price is $15.999 – not everyone’s budget. Says the source of the rumor:

[RF 200-500mm f/4L IS] the will be the RF replacement for the highly-regarded EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM 1.4x. There will not be a built-in teleconverter in the RF version, which will help reduce weight, size and complexity, sadly its omission won’t reduce the price.

Do not waste time on rumors, use your time to go out and take pictures.

Canon Might Announce More RF Mount Super-telephoto Lenses In 2021

RF 600mm F/4L Super-telephoto

The Canon RF 400mm and RF 600mm, both announced last week, might not be the only super-telephoto lenses for the RF mount to get released in 2021.

According to a new rumor, at least two more super-telephoto lenses are in development. A Canon RF 400mm f/4 DO IS USM lens might get announced and it could be the smallest and lightest of its kind, with a redesigned optical formula for the RF mount system. A Canon RF 200-500mm f/4L IS USM might also get announced. No more information on this one but it might not have a built-in teleconverter (as the EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM 1.4x does).

Stay tuned, and stay safe.
