As usual after a major Canon announcement, rumor mills go wild with speculations.
Latest has it that Canon might announce two more RF lenses beyond the six lenses we already know they will announce. And then not. The rumor isn’t entirely clear about when Canon might announce these two lenses, citing some plans Canon might have had in the recent past and then abandoned, and considering 2020 too as the year for a possible announcement.
Neither is it clear what focal lengths Canon might up their sleeve, though the RF 100-400mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM and RF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS appear to be candidates. Both are supported by patent applications filed by Canon.
It’s pretty clear that Canon takes their EOR R system very seriously, and that the company will invest a lot in the development of the eco system (i.e. lenses). A lot of new RF lenses are set to hit the market in the next years, that’s for sure. For the same reason a lot of weak, RF lenses related rumors will hit the Internet in the next months.
