Canon Might Announce RF Mount Cinema Prime Lenses Soon

Canon Rf 16mm Rf 35mm F/1.2L EF Lenses Tilt-shift Lenses

Last month we hear about some pretty dope Canon Cinema that are rumored to get announced in 2021. Here are the RF mount Cinema prime lenses that might come along.

In April 2021 we had this rumor about upcoming Canon Cinema cameras: EOS C700DR (4K), EOS C500S (8K) and EOS C300S (8K). A set of RF mount prime lenses are now also rumored to come soon, likely along with the Cinema gear above. Canon Rumors reports the following lenses:

  • RF 14mm T/1.5
  • RF 18mm T/1.5
  • RF 24mm T/1.3
  • RF 35mm T/1.3
  • RF 50mm T/1.3
  • RF 85mm T/1.3
  • RF 100mm T/1.5
  • RF 135mm T/1.5
  • and some compact zooms and telephotos for the RF mount

Unknown so far if Canon will make a development announcement or the real thing. All these lenses are rumored for 2021. When is another take but NAB 2021 in Fall seems a good candidate.

Latest Canon Rumors: XF505 Video Camera And New Cinema Lenses, First For RF Mount

Canon Rumors

Here are the some new Canon rumors for the video and Cinema side of things.

The Canon rumors suggest Canon will announce some new video gear for NAB 2021. Among this gear is the Canon XF505, a run-and-gun camcorder likely similar to yet more feature packed than the Canon XF405. A few rumored specifications made it to the world:

Canon XF505 Specifications:

  • Same 1″ sensor as the XF705
  • 12G-SDI output and SD cards
  • An integrated zoom lens with 15x zoom
  • BP-A batteries

Next, Canon is likely to release also a bunch of new Cinema lenses, and among them the first for the RF mount. The rumor suggests Canon is set to replace the current Compact CINE-ZOOMs with new models that cover the Super35 and the full-frame imaging sensors. This is achieved by changing the rear group of optical elements. PL and EF mount will be available as usual. The first Cinema lens for the RF mount might be a prime lens. No more to get here for the time being.

All Canon rumors are listed here.

Stay safe, stay tuned.

Other Canon video cameras that are on a possible release list are the Cinema EOS C90 and Cinema EOS C200 Mark II.

There are many factors that could delay these announcements, the global pandemic and related supply chain shortages or other production issues in first place.

Stay tuned, and safe.
