Canon recently has filed a new lens patent in Japan. This patent is for 400mm f/4 DO lens, 600mm f/4 DO lens, and 800mm f/5.6 lens. The patent didn’t mention whether this lens is EF mount or RF mount, but hi-lows-note said these lenses could be RF mount, and upcoming EOS R could have IBIS.
Imaging-Resource has interviewed with high-level Canon engineering execs during the EOS RP (B&H Photo/Adorama/Amazon) launch. From the interview, Canon said that EOS R will also have Eye-AF feature via firmware update soon; The image sensor in EOS RP is same as in EOS 6D Mark II; the Pro/high-end EOS R body is coming, but will take time when everything right in the body.
Along with Canon EOS RP (B&H Photo/Adorama/Amazon), Canon today announced the development of six new RF lenses: RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens, Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens, Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens, Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM DS Lens, Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM Lens, Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS USM Lens. Currently, there is no price, specs info about these six RF lenses. Release date for these six RF lenses will be available in later 2019.
