Canon RF 85mm f/2 IS STM Lens Coming in 2020

Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM Lens

Canon is allegedly working on a new affordable RF 85mm f/2 IS STM lens, which is rumored to be announced in 2020. In addition, Canon is planning to a whole line of f/2-f/2.8 non-L prime lenses with IS in the next 12 months. And these prime lenses will range from 18mm to 85mm.

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).

This is the first time we’ve heard such a RF 85mm f/2 IS STM lens coming. So just take it with a grain of salt until we can confirm the information above.

Reminder: Canon will have the new product announcements on Monday, April 20, 2020, at 1:00 PM EDT/10:00 AM PT. Hope we can see the highly anticipated Canon EOS R5Canon EOS R6Canon 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 AmazonB&HAdorama.
