Canon RF 85mm f/2 IS STM Lens is on the Way
The latest rumor suggests that Canon is working on a new RF 85mm f/2 IS STM lens, which is expected to be announced in 2020. In addition, the source claims that Canon is set to release a bunch of non-L RF prime lenses with f/2-f/2.8 in the next 12 months. And this line of prime lenses will range from 18mm to 85mm.
We know Canon currently has two 85mm RF lenses for Canon EOS R and EOS RP mirrorless cameras: RF 85mm f/1.2L USM Lens ($2,699) and RF 85mm f/1.2L USM DS “Defocus Smoothing” lens ($2,999). And this new non-L RF 85mm f/2 IS STM lens is expected to be a more affordable 85mm lens.
Canon will have the new product announcements on Monday, April 20, 2020, at 1:00 PM EDT/10:00 AM PT. And we will see the highly anticipated Canon EOS R5, Canon EOS R6, Canon Cinema EOS C300 Mark II Camcorder and a new Cinema lens on that day.
The Canon EOS R5 mirrorless camera is now listed at B&H and Adorama.
Canon EOS R body: $1,799 at Amazon, B&H, Adorama.
