DC.Watch posted a picture (above) of a slide taken from a Canon meeting which gives us some hints about what is coming. In 2019 Canon will most likely announce three more fast lenses with f/2.8: a wide angle lens, a prime lens, and a telephoto lens. Shipping is expected in October 2018.
Starting today,, September 12, you can pre-order the Canon EOS R and the new RF mount lenses:
Nokishita updated the list of unreleased Canon gear leaked through a certification authority. Besides some new bits about gear we already knew, there are also five lenses we can now be sure will be released in the next months (4 of them leaked previously).

As you can see no specifications so far for the new lenses. However, we are sure among the list is the next Canon prime lens for the EOS M system, a 32-35mm lens with either f/1.8 or f/1.4. Let’s hope it’s the latter. The other lenses in the list may be “L” lenses and a new kit lens.
Samyang (aka Rokinon, Walimex) announced the company’s new Samyang AF 85mm f/1.4 EF lens. Sample pictures shot with the lens are here. The Samyang AF 85mm f/1.4 EF has a very compact size and is light, compared to Canon’s EF 85mm f/1.4L IS and Sigma’s 85mm f/1.4 ART lenses.
Compact and lightweight AF 85mm lens for superior portability
Change The Standard
Samyang AF 85mm F1.4 EF is designed with a bright aperture of F1.4. The new 85mm is formed of 9 elements in 7 groups, with 1 Hybrid aspherical lens. It also has Ultra Multi Coating, a feature used to reduce ghosting and lens flare. This lens provides smooth out-focusing and beautiful bokeh effect with excellent center resolution. The AF 85mm F1.4 EF lens is equipped with a variety of Samyang’s most advanced lens technologies, making it ideal for a variety of shooting situations – portraits, outdoor, pets and more. It is also lightweight and compact, weighs only 485g without lens caps and hood, maximizing portability and usability.

As of June 2018, Samyang Optics has confirmed through internal testing that the following camera models work with the AF 85mm F1.4 EF lens. However, some camera functions may not be fully operational.
For mirrorless cameras, all camera functions are made fully operational only if the official “EF=EOS M” Canon mount adapter is installed.
Nokishita uncovered four yet-to-release Canon lenses.
These lens have SKUs
At least some of the lenses show up as manufactured in Canon’s Utsunomiya Factory, where all “L” lenses are made. Hence there may be one or more “L” lenses coming any time within the next 3 to 9 months.
Among the bunch we are sure is the 50mm equivalent (32 or 35mm on APS-C) lens for Canon EOS M system we leaked back in 2016 (its development). It’s one of many of our rumors that get regularly hijacked, and then surface somewhere else on the web. We were always told that it would be a 35mm lens, but others talk about 32mm. This lens may have f/1.4 or f/1.8. let’s hope it’s the former. We were also told this lens will be announced ahead of Photokina 2018, which makes even more sense since we now have reasons to think that most likely Canon will announce the EOS M5 Mark II in September 2018. Canon’s full frame mirrorless may take a bit longer.
So what may the other lenses be? Since a few days a replacement for the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II is rumored on some spots on the web. For the time being we can neither confirm nor deny this. The EF 24-70mm f/2.8 II was announced in 2012, so it may be a bit early for a replacement.
So far no hints about the remaining two lenses. hey might be “L” lenses. There are some sugestions that Canon may announced professional lenses for Photokina 2018 but so far it’s only buzz.
