Canon RF 35mm f/1.2 USM
เลนส์ Prime ไวแสง ระดับพรีเมี่ยม สำหรับ Mirrorless Fullframe RF-Mount
“I want my RF 35mm f/1.2L USM (or f/1.4L) now!”
That quote is a running theme in the world of Canon, and I get it! We (consumers) love native and new lenses for the most part. There are likely a lot of people that are adapting the EF 35mm f/1.4L USM II or using the RF 35mm f/1.8 STM while they wait, they just don’t want to wait anymore.
The RF 35mm f/1.2L USM has been on our roadmap since we launched the roadmap, and there have been may reports of “it’s coming soon!”. While we didn’t intentionally provide wrong information, there are likely many factors above our pay grade as to why the lens is taking so long to come to market.
- We have been told that the optical glass used for L lenses is still in short supply, but it is improving. A 35L would be a high-yield production. It makes sense that Canon would need a good supply of elements for manufacturing to keep costs down and to meet what will surely be a huge demand.
- It has been suggested that Canon will announce a “trio” of fast L-prime lenses at the same time. Though we have not been able to confirm this. Canon would then need a good supply of glass for a 24L, 28L and 35L. We hope this announcement strategy is true.
- It’s possible that Canon simply wanted to improve on their own design if issues were found.
- Canon has their own business strategy that they won’t be too transparent about. Getting the “big white” RF lenses to market for the eventual EOS R1 makes a lot of sense. There are lots of agency shooters on the EOS-1D X Mark III and EF mount lenses.
