Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM Lens to be Announced in the first half of 2024

The much-anticipated Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM lens is now officially slated for release in the first half of 2024, bringing an end to the speculation that has surrounded its launch. Previous uncertainties regarding whether it would boast an f/1.2 or f/1.4 aperture have been put to rest; the lens will indeed feature an impressive f/1.2 aperture. While the practical impact of this speed difference on real-world shooting might be marginal, it undoubtedly adds a compelling angle for the marketing endeavors.

This latest addition to Canon’s repertoire aligns with their existing F1.2 series, which already includes the 85mm and 50mm lenses. The introduction of the 35mm lens completes a trio of popular standard focal lengths. The timing of its release, rumored for the first half of 2024, has sparked speculation about a possible unveiling around CP+2024 (February 22nd to 25th), coinciding with the bloom of cherry blossoms and fresh greenery.

Despite the lack of detailed specifications, the photography community eagerly awaits confirmation and hopes for a comprehensive lens lineup. Questions arise regarding the potential expansion of the F1.2 series, with speculation about the inclusion of wide-angle and medium-telephoto lenses post-2024. This lens release has also prompted curiosity about whether Canon has plans for fast L RF 24mm or RF 28mm lenses, as no additional information has been provided thus far.

As enthusiasts eagerly anticipate the unveiling of the Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM lens, the photography world remains on the lookout for further developments and insights, including possible interviews and articles from CP+ that may shed light on Canon’s future lens roadmap. The story continues, promising more updates and revelations in the near future.
