Canon is expected to release at least three new RF-S lenses in 2023. One of the lenses that is rumored to be launching in the first half of 2023 is an RF-S 11-22mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM. The EF-M version of this lens was a favorite of EOS M shooters since it was launched. It is a very good lens, especially for its price point.
Currently, there is no wide-angle lens in the RF-S lineup yet, so the introduction of the RF-S 11-22mm F4.5-5.6 IS STM will be greatly welcomed by APS-C users. It seems likely that the optical system will be carried over from the EF-M lens as it is, but the EF-M 11-22mm F4.5-5.6 is a very popular lens, so the RF-S version is likely to have a satisfactory finish. is.
Also, it is said that another EF-M based RF-S lens will be released, but this is a pancake EF-M 22mm F2 or a telephoto zoom EF-M 55-200mm F4.5-6.3 lens. The remaining one seems to be an RF-S original, but I’m curious as to what kind of lens this will be.
Canon recently announced the new RF-S 18–45mm F4.5–6.3 IS STM and RF-S 18–150mm F3.5–6.3 IS STM that are designed to be paired with the new EOS R7 and R10 cameras. In addition to these products, Canon is rumored to announce several new RF-S APS-C mirrorless lenses in 2023.
At the moment, CP+ is also scheduled to be held locally, so what kind of new products will Canon announce for CP+? We’re looking forward to it.
