Complete List of Canon RF Lenses

This is the complete list of Canon RF Lenses. RF lenses offer higher quality, speed, and operation thanks to outstanding optical technology and design. Canon RF lenses are fast with even higher levels of optical clarity come as standard with the EOS R full frame mirrorless system.

The RF lens mount was developed by Canon and launched in 2018 to replace the EF mount. The Canon RF mount has the same 54mm diameter, but boasts a flange focal distance (the space between the lens and the sensor) of 20mm (24mm shorter than that of the EF/EF-S mount, thanks to the lack of mirror) and 12 electrical contacts (4 more than EF/EF-S, providing faster communication).

RF-mount lenses are not compatible with EF, EF-S or EF-M mount camera bodies. This means they are not backwards compatible with DSLR lenses that use the older EF mount. While Canon initially continued to develop several more EF mount DSLRs after the launch of the RF mount, they stated publicly at the beginning of 2020 that there would be no more EF lenses. Remember that the non-L lenses are not weather sealed. You can see the Complete List of Canon RF Lenses which is regulary updated.

Canon EOS R5 to Get Full HD 120fps, and C-Log 3 in Next Firmware ?

Canon EOS R5 is rumoured to release a firmware update with C-Log3 and Full HD 120fps, in addition to lower bit rate options in RAW as well as IPB in all frame rates and codecs.  So the question; Is Canon about to add 120fps in 1080p and lower bit rate options in 8K to the EOS R5?

The Canon EOS R5  (AmazonB&HAdorama) supports high-resolution DCI 8K 30 fps raw video recording internally along with 4K recording up to 120 fps in 4:2:2 10-bit with Canon Log, as well as up to 20 fps burst shooting with an electronic shutter and up to 12 fps with a mechanical shutter.

Of course, 1080p / 120 was a feature that should have already added at the time of the EOS R5’s announcement. Think about it, the more budget friendly Canon EOS R6 supports Full HD / 120fps. It’s amazing that the EOS R5 is capable of 4K/120fps, but can’t it do 120fps at 1080p? As of now, EOS R5 specs officially only list 1080p / 60 support as maximum frame rates in Full HD.
