Canon has made significant strides toward completing the expansion of its RF mirrorless lens portfolio, but there are still a significant number of gaps in the selection. It appears that the firm will soon be focusing its attention on wide-angle alternatives, and it is anticipated that four professional prime lenses from the L Series will be made available within the next year.
According to Canon Rumors, in addition to other lenses that will be released in the near future, Canon is preparing the introduction of four professional wide-angle prime lenses. These lenses will be 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. It should come as no surprise that both the 24mm and the 35mm lenses were chosen, given they are the basic primary focal lengths and can be found in the lens lineups of virtually any professional camera. Because the business never produced an L alternative at that focal length for the EF mount, the 28mm lens is a little bit more peculiar than the others.
In the meanwhile, 12 millimeters would be the most peculiar. It would be rather unusual to find a full-frame lens that combines such a large maximum aperture with such a wide focal length, which would almost certainly pique the curiosity of photographers who specialize in landscape and astronomy photography in particular. For years, my Sigma 14mm f/1.8 Art lens has been one of my favorites, and I have to admit that I would find it quite interesting to see such an aperture in an even wider lens. Let’s wait and see what the following year has in store for us!
