Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM Lens to be Announced in 2022

Good news folks, Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM Lens rumored to be Announced in Q3 of 2022. The new bright prime lens will be the next f/1.2 model after the RF 50mm f/1.2L and RF 85mm f/1.2L USM lenses.

It is still unclear whether it will be F1.2 or F1.4, but considering the lineup so far, it seems that the possibility of F1.2 is high. We know that the company filed Canon patents for both models. These Canon lenses were the RF 35mm f/1.2L, 35mm f/1.4L, 28mm f/1.2L and 24mm f/1.2L. Looks like either the f/1.2 or f/1.4 will go in mass production this Summer.

It’s suggested that the lens is already in the “hands of testers and marketing folks and recently appeared in an internal dealer roadmap”.
