We knew Canon was working on a Nifty-Fifty for the EOS R camera system. Now…
We expect Canon to announce three new Canon RF lenses for the Canon EOS R system, RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS, RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS, and RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS.
These lenses will most likely be announced along with the Canon EOS 90D and the EOS M6 Mark II. All are expected to be announced on August 28th, 2019. Specifications (90d | M6 Mark II) and promotional videos (90D | M6 Mark II) for both cameras have already leaked.
The suggested prices for the three new RF lenses appear to have leaked in Thailand, and so starting from the price in Thai Baht we can get an idea about where the US$ prices will be.
- RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS 82,600 THB – $2,499
- RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS 82,600 THB – $2,499
- RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS 93,500 THB – $2,799
The same source suggests the RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS and RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS lenses will start shipping in October 2019, the RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens will be available in December 2019.
Stay tuned for more to come….
