A Long-awaited Canon Lens Is On Its Way

Canon’s RF lens library has been steadily growing, with a wide range of standard lenses and more extreme options to meet the needs of a wide range of photographers. Still, professionals are still looking for a few lenses, and luckily, a new one with big improvements is probably coming soon.

Canon Rumors says that the RF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM will be available soon. Already, prototypes of the lens are being tried out. It’s especially interesting that the new version is about a third lighter and shorter than its EF predecessor. This is good news for photographers who need to carry around big super-telephoto prime lenses to take pictures of sports or wildlife.

It is the company’s second-longest lens, and its aperture is f/2.8. It’s a very popular lens among bird photographers, who need a long reach and a wide maximum aperture to keep their shutter speeds fast. If the lens came in an RF version, it would be a surefire hit.

There is no clear date for when the lens will be ready, but it looks like Canon is aiming for the first half of 2023. I think that Canon is putting a lot of effort into their super-telephoto prime lenses right now because the EOS R1 is also coming out next year. Next year, we’ll see what happens.
