Here is a fresh Canon rumor. Canon is on the verge to announce four L-grade prime lenses for the RF mount within the next 12 months. As a reminder RF L-series lenses represent the very best in optical technology with faster performance and a whole new level of quality.
These are the rumored lenses:
Canon RF 12mm f/1.8L USM
Canon RF 24mm f/1.4L USM
Canon RF 28mm f/1.4L USM
Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM
Since we have already confirmed that RF 135mm f/1.8L USM lens will be announced soon, first of these Canon lenses could be the RF 24mm f/1.4L USM lens. Stay tuned for more info.
Canon is rumored to release two more super-telephoto prime lenses in early 2023. One of these lenses will be RF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM lens and according to recent rumors, this telephoto prime lens has been tested in the wild.
Canon has discontinued the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens for a long time, so many Canon photographer are waiting for this lens.
The Canon RF 300mm f/2.8L and RF 500mm f/4L are said to be much lighter and shorter than their EF mount counterparts. In addition, Canon may actually release the RF mount version of the 300 f/2.8 as a zoom.
The fast prime lens got another mention in the rumor mill. According to latest rumors, the long awaited Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM lens now delayed again. As a result you may not see this lens until in 2023. Latest rumors said this lens will be announced along with two other RF L prime optics in 2023.
Since we have already confirmed that RF 135mm f/1.8L USM lens will be announced in the Q4 of 2022, so the other Canon lenses could be the RF 24mm f/1.4L USM lens and another wide angle L prime lens. Stay tuned for more info.
