Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM Confirmed for 2024 [CR3]

We have finally confirmed that the Canon RF 35mm f/1.2L USM is indeed coming in the first half of 2024. There have been some false positives over the years, but we’re as sure about this as we are about anything.

There were conflicting reports as to whether or not it would be an f/1.2 or f/1.4 lens, but we now know it’ll be f/1.2. The speed difference won’t make much difference in real-world shooting, but it will help the marketing department.

There are no known specifications for the lens, but we’re looking forward to laying this one to rest.

Here are a couple of optical designs for the RF 35mm f/1.2L USM that have appeared in patents over the last year.
