Canon is rumored to announce seven new RF mirrorless lenses for Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless camera in 2019:
- RF 16-35mm f/2.8L (or similar)
- RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS (or similar)

In addition to these new RF lenses, Canon is also developing two new fast f/1.2 L prime lenses: RF 24mm f/1.2L USM lens and RF 85mm f/1.2L USM lens. All these three new RF lenses are expected to be released in late 2019 or early 2020.
