Canon Might Announce a 35mm f/1.2L Lens For The EOS R System

Canon RF 50mm F/1.2 EOS R System

Is Canon set to release another f/1.2 lens for the EOS R system in the near future?

After the RF 50mm f/1.2L and the RF 85mm f/1.2L Canon night announce a 35mm f/1.2L lens. This sounds plausible to us (despite the fact there are too many low reliable RF mount rumors around). First, 35mm is a very classic focal length on full frame (Canon already released the relatively inexpensive RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro). Next, another f/1.2L lens makes sense for a system like the EOS R, designed to mount high performing optics. Indeed, we are pretty sure the rumored RF 35mm f/1.2L will not be the last f/1.2 lens for the EOS R. Maybe a 24mm f/1.2L is next?

The Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L lens is said to be released somewhen in 2020. Canon still has to release a bunch of lenses they already announced. If this lens is going to be released for sure it will not be a lens for people on a budget.

We expect Canon to make an announcement on August 28th. The Canon EOS 90D will be announced, possibly along with the EOS M6 Mark II and some lenses for the EOS M system. The rumored high resolution EOS R body will most likely be announced later. This camera will replace the EOS 5Ds/5Ds R.

All Canon rumors are listed here.

Stay tuned…

  • Aperture Range: f/1.8 to f/22
  • Super Spectra Coating
  • STM Stepping AF Motor
  • 1:2 Max. Magnification, 6.7″ Min. Focus

The Phoblographer reviewed of the Canon RF 35mm f/1.8 IS STM Macro lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system. They gave the lens a rating of 4/5.

About the autofocus they say:

During […] tests with the Canon 35mm f1.8 USM IS RF on the Canon EOS RP, [the reviewer] was quite surprised at just how well the two worked together. While on a tour of the Penumbra facilities in NYC, [the reviewer] decided to approach the visit in a documentary fashion. For photojournalistic reasons and purposes, the Canon RF 35mm f1.8 USM IS did a great job. The focusing was always accurate, fast enough for documentary work, and reliable. In fact, it never missed its mark. 

The Phoblographer’s conclusion:

The Canon RF 35mm f1.8 USM IS is a lens that photographers will pick up if they’re looking for a good 35mm lens for the Canon system that has image stabilization. In addition to that the image quality is also very sharp for what it is. Then consider the bokeh and the fact that you can not only get this from a 35mm lens, but the f1.8 aperture lets you really blow your backgrounds out. I can’t really complain about the Canon RF 35mm f1.8 USM IS except, you know, I wish it was built better.

Canon RF 35mm f1.8 IS STM Macro Lens Review (highly versatile lens, DPReview)

  • Rounded 9-Blade Diaphragm

DPReview posted their full review of the Canon RF 35mm f1.8 IS STM Macro lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system. They gave it a score of 86%.

From their conclusion:

This will no doubt be an obvious walk-around lens for many EOS R-series users, at least for the time being while the RF lens range is still growing. With a classically popular focal length, a respectably wide maximum aperture, image stabilization and close-focusing capabilities, it clearly has broad ambitions and many useful applications.

[…]

The [Canon RF 35mm f1.8 IS STM Macro] has been put together well and handles nicely, and you soon start to appreciate the presence of the Control Ring as you use it to make small tweaks while shooting. The focusing system isn’t the most discreet but it is fast, and it works very well during video shooting

The [Canon RF 35mm f1.8 IS STM Macro] is certainly capable of delivering nicely sharp images too, and while vignetting, curvilinear distortion and lateral chromatic aberration are all visible to some extent, the worst of these can be banished quite easily through the camera-based corrections. LoCA is present at wider apertures and can be visible in out-of-focus areas, but it’s most prominent in out-of-focus high contrast regions, where you may see purple and green fringing. That, and the ‘catseye’ bokeh that can result when shooting at wider apertures might be a concern for those who intend to use the lens frequently in this way. Heavily defocused areas and more natural backgrounds, however, are generally rendered very pleasingly.
