Canon has been aggressively filling out their RF mirrorless lens lineup, but there are still a fair number of missing options. It looks like the company will be turning their attention to wide angle options next, with four L Series professional primes likely to be released in the next year.
Canon Rumors is reporting that in addition to other forthcoming lenses, Canon is planning the release of four professional wide angle prime lenses: the RF 12mm f/1.8L USM, RF 24mm f/1.4L USM, RF 28mm f/1.4L USM, and 35mm f/1.2L USM. Both the 24mm and 35mm lenses are no surprise, as these are standard prime focal lengths and are represented in most professional lens lineups. 28mm is a smidgen more unusual, as the company never manufactured an L option at that focal length for the EF mount. Meanwhile, 12mm would be the most unusual. A combination of such a wide focal length and maximum aperture in a full frame lens would be quite unique and would surely generate some interest, particularly among landscape and astrophotographers. I have been a huge fan of my Sigma 14mm f/1.8 Art for years and would be quite curious to see such an aperture in an even wider lens. We'll see what the next 12 months bring!
