More details about the four upcoming RF lenses for Canon EOS R

Canon Eos R

Nokishita posted some more details about the four upcoming lenses for the Canon EOS R. Launching their new EOS R system with such an amazing lens offering from the beginning is for sure a winning move by Canon.

The revolutionary Canon RF 28-70mm F/2L alone makes a difference. Nikon and Sony, you’re both done. This is Canon determined to dominate the mirrorless market.

The Canon EOS R might have a killer feature: a touchbar selection feature with EVF display

Canon EOS R
What is this thing right of the EVF?

Have you noticed the small control “thing” just right of the EVF of the Canon EOS R in the image above?

We think the small “thing” immediately on the right of the EVF (Electronic View Finder) might be a touchbar selection option as we know it from Apple’s recent MacBook Pro. A touch sensitive selection button with back and forward list options. I guess what you’re about to select will be displayed in the EVF. This feature alone might make a huge difference, and differentiate the Canon EOS R from competitors.

What do you think, is this “small control thing” on the right of the Canon EOS R EVF what we think it is?

All leaked images and specs of the Canon EOS R, the new and very interesting RF lenses, and the other gear Canon is going to announce are displayed here. Announcement of the Canon EOS R and four new RF lenses is expected for September 5, 2018. Stay tuned.

This is the list of gear Canon is going to announce in September (Canon EOS R, R lenses, and more)

Nokishita posted what is likely the definitive list of new gear Canon is going to announce ahead of Photokina 2018, starting by next week.

  • Canon EOS R (the full frame mirrorless camera)
  • Canon EOS R with 24-105mm lens kit
  • Canon RF 35mm F/1.8 M IS
  • Canon RF 50mm F/1.2L USM
  • Canon RF 28-70mm F/2L USM
  • Canon RF 24-105mm F/4L USM
  • Canon EF-M 32mm F/1.4 STM
  • Canon EF 400 mm F/2.8L III
  • Canon EF 600 mm F/4L III
  • R adapter (please note: there may be three adapters. M.ADAP R, M.ADAP R ND, M.ADAP R PL. At the time being we are not sure what the different codes/names mean)
  • PD – E1 is also included in the accessory list

As you can see, a pretty decent gear list, and a cool lens line-up. Good to know that Canon will start with some interesting lenses for their new system. The new Canon EOS R system is getting three L lenses from the beginning. Good move Canon!

Is the Canon RF 28-70mm F/2L a world’s first? And how big will this lens be? It has to be a massive piece of glass having f/2 for a FF sensor. I think it’s a very smart move by Canon to announce the Canon EOS R along with a 50mm f/1.2L, and with two classic zoom lenses for FF cameras, the afore mentioned RF 28-70mm F/2L and the RF 24-105mm F/4L. Not sure what the “M” in RF 35mm F/1.8 M IS means but a fast 35mm lens rounds up very well the initial R mount lens line-up.

The Canon EOS R was rumored to have IBIS (In Camera Image Stabilisation). I wonder if this still makes sense given that one lens appears to have image stabilisation (IS). However, IBIS is still an option I’d not exclude.

The Canon EOS R might obfuscate Nikon’s Z6 and Z7, alone for the initial lens offering. Add to this that most likely the Canon EOS R will shoot 4K video with Dual Pixel AF and you may see a real winner here.

I am also very happy that eventually Canon is releasing a fast prime for the EOS M system, the 32mm f/1.4. This was one needed and will be part of my EOS M kit asap.

Announcements will start on September 5, 2018. Exciting times ahead.

Stay tuned!
