Canon To Announce A Slew Of RF Lenses For The EOS-R Camera In 2019

My readers know me as The Wildlife Ho-tographer, and my three decades of utilizing Canon equipment. As you know, I am not a buyer of the current EOS-R camera but will reconsider my decision when they announce their pro model this year.

Also expected in 2019 is a bunch of RF lens announcement. The following are rumored :

  • RF 16-35mm f/2.8L 
  • RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS
  • RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS
  • RF 105mm f/1.4L
  • RF 85mm f/1.8 IS STM
  • RF Macro lens
  • RF non-L kit lens

My advice to Canon is, do not place too much emphasis on the EOS-R and RF lenses, at the expense of the traditional high end EOS cameras and EF lenses, like the successors to the EOS-1D X Mark II and EOS-7D Mark II. There will be ample space for both camera and lens system to coexist for many years to come. As a global leader in photographic equipment, you can handle more than one system at a time.

The Rugby World Cup in 2019, follow by the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 are the perfect events to highlight Canon's dominance in sports and wildlife photography. How many pro photographers do you think will be taking a EOS-R camera to these events?
