Canon RF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens

We are excited to confirm that the long-awaited Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM lens is officially slated for release in the first half of 2024. After navigating through various rumors, we can confidently say that this lens is indeed on its way.

Initially, there were conflicting reports regarding the aperture of the lens, with speculation surrounding both f/1.2 and f/1.4 options. However, we can now confirm that the Canon RF 35mm lens will boast an impressive f/1.2 aperture. While the practical difference in shooting scenarios may be minimal, this faster aperture will undoubtedly add to the lens’s appeal and serve as a strong selling point.

In Canon’s existing lineup, the RF 35mm f/1.2L USM will join the ranks of two other stellar F1.2 series lenses, the 85mm and 50mm. With the addition of this highly anticipated lens, Canon aims to complete its collection of prime lenses with popular standard focal lengths. Photography enthusiasts are eagerly anticipating its potential launch during CP+2024 (February 22nd to 25th), a prestigious photography event, or perhaps coinciding with the picturesque cherry blossom and fresh greenery season.

While specific specifications for the RF 35mm f/1.2L USM lens are not yet available, we are excited to finally dispel the rumors surrounding its arrival. Additionally, there is strong speculation about Canon’s future lens development. Could they expand the F1.2 series to include wide-angle or medium-telephoto lenses in 2024? Valuable insights may surface through interview articles from CP+.

While no information was provided about the potential introduction of fast L RF 24mm or RF 28mm lenses, it is important to highlight that Canon has much more in store for photography enthusiasts. As anticipation builds for the Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM lens, photographers can look forward to unlocking new creative possibilities with this highly anticipated addition to Canon’s RF lens lineup.
