It seems that two new Canon RF mount lenses might get announced very soon. Vendors appear to have them already added to listings.

According to the rumor, Canon might announce two new RF mount lenses very soon, the Canon RF 15-30mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM and Canon RF 24mm f/1.8 MACRO IS STM. Images of both lenses allegedly in vendor listings appeared on Imgur. Here they are:

Both images above could be faked, but we believe they are real and that both lenses will get announced soon.

The complete list of upcoming Canon gear is this one:

  • Canon EOS R100
  • RF 15-30mm F4.5-6.3 IS STM
    / EW-73E

Is Canon Set To Announce RF 15-30mm IS STM and RF 24mm f/1.8

Canon Eos R5 Mark Ii Canon EOS R6 Mark Ii Rf Mount Eos R6 Mark Ii Rf 300mm Rf 35mm Canon Eos R100 Rf 24mm F/1.8 Rf-s Canon Eos R7 Eos R100 Canon High Resolution Eos R R10 Eos C5 Canon Eos R1 Eos R5c Canon Rf 16mm Rf 35mm F/1.2L EF Lenses Tilt-shift Lenses Rumor

A new rumor with uncertain reliability surfaced from the deep corners of the interweb. Two new lenses are rumored: RF 15-30mm IS STM and RF 24mm f/1.8.

The rumor originated on 5channel, an anonymous bulletin board. The full list of rumored gear:

  • RF15-30mm IS STM (f number unknown)
    • EW-73E
    • E-67II
  • RF24mm F1.8
    • EW-65B
    • E-52II
    • LP1016
  • EW-73E

The lenses seem to be for full frame imaging sensors and might be budget lenses, given that they are driven by STM. Hard to say if this comes from an insider or is just bs spread on an anonymous forum. It has to be said that there are two Canon patents that seem to refer to these lenses. The patent applications refer to a RF 24mm f/1.8 and an RF 16-30mm f/4-5.6.

Any idea?
