Canon RF 35mm f/1.4 L USM Lens Announcement in April 2024

The eagerly anticipated unveiling of the Canon RF 35mm f/1.4L USM Lens is rumored to coincide with the announcement of the Canon EOS R5 Mark II and Canon EOS R1 in April 2024. While initial speculations hinted at an f/1.2 aperture, recent reports confirm it will indeed be an f/1.4, a distinction of little practical consequence.

One intriguing aspect of the RF 35mm f/1.4L USM is its purported inclusion of “video features,” although specifics remain elusive. This departure from the norm for prime lenses suggests potentially innovative capabilities, although it’s unclear how it aligns with Canon’s existing PowerZoom lineup.

Despite persistent rumors, the RF 35mm f/1.4L has yet to materialize, heightening anticipation for its possible debut. If speculation holds true, enthusiasts can anticipate a significant unveiling event next month, showcasing the trifecta of the EOS R5 Mark II, EOS R1, and RF 35mm f/1.4L.

While the exact nature of the lens’s video functionality remains unknown, possibilities such as smooth aperture control or customizable control ring features are enticing prospects for videographers and photographers alike.
