Canon RF 200-500mm f/4L IS USM Lens to be Announced in Q4 of 2023

According to late rumors by CR, the super telephoto zoom lens RF 200-500mm f/4L IS USM lens will be officially announced in the Q4 of 2023 or at the beginning of 2024 along with EOS R1.

Canon has a long history of upgrading its lenses in pairs, and the lack of an RF version of the 500mm has many photographers wondering when it’s coming. However, with the recent launch of the RF 100-300mm f/2.8L IS USM, Canon appears to have taken a fresh approach to its super telephoto lenses.

Canon RF 100-300mm f/2.8 L IS USM Lens: $9,499 at B&H Photo Video/Adorama/Amazon.

Canon has been rumored for months about a new super telephoto zoom, and the most consistent information we’ve received suggests that the new lens will be the RF 200-500mm f/4L IS USM.

The Canon RF 200-500mm f/4L IS USM lens will not come with a built-in teleconverter as rumored before. The reason for not having built-in teleconverter is that Canon want to make this lens much lighter.

Of course, with all these impressive features comes a hefty price tag. It would be fair to say that the RF 200-500mm f/4L IS USM will be another five-digit lens from Canon.

Canon EOS R5 and the EOS R6 are selling really well. At this stage it should come as no surprise that after the launch of the EOS R3, Canon will focus on the lower end of the RF mount lineup.
