We are thrilled to confirm that the highly anticipated Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM lens is set to make its debut in the first half of 2024. While there have been some false positives in the past, we have received reliable information, making us confident that this lens is indeed on its way.
Initially, there were conflicting reports regarding whether it would be an f/1.2 or f/1.4 lens. However, we can now confirm that it will indeed feature an impressive f/1.2 aperture. While the speed difference may not have a substantial impact on real-world shooting, it adds to the lens’s allure and provides an excellent selling point for Canon’s marketing team.
Canon’s current lineup already includes two F1.2 series lenses, the 85mm and 50mm, which have been highly regarded by photographers. By introducing the RF 35mm f/1.2L USM, Canon aims to complete its lineup of high-quality prime lenses with popular standard focal lengths. We eagerly await its potential launch around CP+2024 (February 22nd to 25th), a premier photography event, or during the picturesque cherry blossom and fresh greenery season.
While there are no specifications available for the RF 35mm f/1.2L USM lens at this time, we are enthusiastic about finally putting rumors to rest. Moreover, we can’t help but wonder if Canon has plans to expand its F1.2 series further. Will they introduce wide-angle or medium-telephoto lenses beyond 2024? Interview articles from CP+ may shed light on Canon’s future lens development.
Although no additional information was provided about the potential arrival of fast L RF 24mm or RF 28mm lenses, it’s worth noting that there is much more to come from Canon. As we eagerly await the arrival of the Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM lens, photography enthusiasts can look forward to exploring new creative possibilities with this highly anticipated addition to Canon’s RF lens lineup.
