The owners of the cameras from the Canon EOS R system have just received the information concerning the premiere of the lenses of this system in 2019. In the upcoming months, we may expect six RF lenses: two portrait 85mm f/1.2 lenses (one is equipped with the Defocus Smoothing function), the reportage 15-35mm, 24-70mm and 70-200mm lenses with fixed f/2.8 light and the “travel zoom” with the universal range of 24-240mm f/4 - 6.3.
1). Canon RF 85mm f/1.2
Canon is moving forward and after the recent premiere of a very interesting professional full frame EOS RP camera, it has announced 6 RF lenses for this system which should debut this year.
2). Canon RF 15-30mm f/2.8L IS USM
The range of the announced lenses is opened by 2 bright portrait lenses targeted at advanced and professional photographers. RF 85mm f/1.2L USM is to be characterized by the highest image quality. RF 85mm f/1.2 L USM DS has been equipped with the Defocus Smoothing function, which should guarantee malleable background blurring with the bokeh effect. In the case of the second lens, we can expect the use of the apodizing filter which will make it possible to obtain smooth contours in the unfocused areas. This will, in return, give “the three-dimensionality effect” to the photographs.
3). Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM
The next 3 lenses are the reportage ones. RF 15 - 35mm f/2.8L IS UMS has been created having in mind architecture, interior and landscape photographs. It is also a proposal worth considering during the photography of special events. The RF 24-70 mm f/2.8L IS USM zoom will be a diverse one, perfect for reportage photography. The producer assures that the lens will be a perfect choice for filmmaking. The last lens from the “reportage trinity” is a stabilized RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM tele-lens which will perfectly fulfil its role in sports, documentary and nature photography as well as in taking portraits.
4). Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM
RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS USM, thanks to a wide range of focal lengths, is to become a true “work horse” among the announced lenses. Its recipients will be both professionals and advanced amateurs. The device is also an optimal travel companion, both when it comes to the diversity of uses (photo/video) and its small size.
5). Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS USM
We will have to wait for the dates of premieres, prices and detailed specifications of the lenses.
