Post Canon Expanding Mirrorless R line

Canon is set to announce (apparently) these new lenses for their R series mirrorless camera line (RF mount)....

Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L USM
Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM
Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM
Canon RF 24-240mm f/4-6.3 IS USM
Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM

They are also supposedly set to announce on Feb 14th a new body (RP model), smaller and lighter with the RF mount, primarily as an entry level body to the R series. It will have less pixels on the sensor, but still be full frame, when compared to the existing R camera. Here are some supposed images....

Default Re: Canon Expanding Mirrorless R line

Full frame mirrorless bodies that are below and above the $1299 Canon EOS RP.

$798 - Sony a7
$998 - Sony a7 II

$1,299 - Canon EOS RP

$1,798 - Sony a7R II
$1,997 - Nikon Z6

Canon also announced the development of 6 new RF lenses.


With the missing Canon RF 85mm f/1.2L DS USM


With more lenses like these signals Canon’s intent to devote all R&D money solely for RF mount Camera bodies, camera lenses and camera accessories.

If no new EF DSLR camera bodies and lenses are announced within the next 17 months then do not expect any EF mount hardware release beyond that time period.

Well that isn't all of the FF mirrorless bodies above or below, but probably all within a dollar range. I wouldn't put the a7 in the list and you forgot the a7iii.

Canon I think is going to put more and more in to the non-EF line since it is pretty full anyway. Same with Nikon and this new line.

The new Canon RF lenses are a good announcement and step in the right direction, so that is good, but I'm not sure I could live without IBIS... IS in lens is okay, but it isn't as good as some IBIS, and it costs more in every lens. it is a good time to look and see who moves what...
