What to expect from Canon in 2019

Though Canon has said themselves that no new EF lenses would be coming in 2019, we do expect at least one EF-M lens and a few new RF lenses. Canon mentioned at the EOS R announcement that they’re working a series of f/2.8 zoom lenses, which is likely the “holy trinity”.

According to Canon Rumors, we expect to see an RF 70-200mm f2.8L IS USM announced sometime in 2019 as part of the “holy trinity” of f/2.8 zoom lenses for Canon’s EOS R system.

Here’s the first patent for such an optical formula uncovered by Canon News.
