Canon EOS R - Seven new lenses in 2019?

Canon EOS R lenses 2019

Currently, Canon offers four lenses for their new EOS R mirrorless system. Our image shows the RF 35mm F1.8 Macro, the RF 50mm F1.2, the RF 24-70mm F4 kit zoom and the RF 28-70mm F2 (from left to right).

More lenses are planned for 2019 but until now details were scarce. According to the rumor mill, no less than seven lenses might be introduced this year:

  • Wide angle zoom RF 16-35mm f/2.8L
  • Standard zoom RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS
  • Tele zoom RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS
  • Portrait lens RF 105mm f/1.4L
  • Portrait lens RF 85mm f/1.8 IS STM
  • RF macro with unknown focal length and aperture
  • RF kit zoom without “L” designation, likely a 28-70mm or 28-80mm with F3.5-5.6

First three lenses are no surprise and would qualify as mandatory equipment for most photographers. The fixed focal lengths 85 and 105mm are typical for portrait lenses; the 105mm F1.4 will obviously draw comparisons with Sigma’s fabulous Bokeh Master. Finally, we expect a longer macro lens in the 90-100mm range and a more basic (and hence cheaper) kit zoom. This last lens would be a good match for the rumored 20 megapixel entry level EOS R which may hit shelves in summer and which will compete directly with the Nikon Z6 and the Sony A7 III.

It’s currently unknown if all those lenses are newly designed from scratch for the EOS R system or if some of them are DSLR lenses with an integrated adapter as we have seen from Sigma with some lenses for Sony FE (the 35mm F1.4 is a prime example). In any case, we’ll probably know by late February at Japan’s CP+ 2019, the next opportunity for Canon to make the announcements.
