Once they got serious about mirrorless cameras and lenses, Canon wasted little time expanding the RF mount's offerings, but one standard lens that is still missing is a fast, premium 35mm prime. No doubt, that lens is coming eventually, and it looks like we can expect it later this year.
Canon Rumors is reporting that a premium Canon 35mm lens for the RF mount is likely coming in the third quarter of this year. Such lenses have always been popular, and it is a virtual guarantee that one will appear eventually, so it is no surprise to hear this news. There is currently the RF 35mm f/1.8 IS Macro STM, but many photographers are likely waiting for a 35mm f/1.2L or f/1.4L. The two EF 35mm f/1.4L lenses were highly popular, and I was a big fan of the second version in my review. No doubt, given the RF mount's jump in quality over even the most impressive EF lenses, a top-shelf RF 35mm lens would likely be highly impressive and would probably be highly popular across a wide range of genres, including portraiture, wedding photography, and more. Hopefully, we will see more news about this lens in the next few months.
