It would make sense that we would see a ton of Canon f1.2 prime lenses. They already have two variants of the 85mm, and then there’s the 50mm option. We recently wrote about the dream of a 35mm f1.2. Sigma has done this already. But a lot of other brands haven’t even hinted that something like this could come. However, a few Canon patents are really exciting us right now.

I’m Dreaming of the Canon RF 35mm f1.2 L Lens to Be Real

We’re streaming daily on Apple PodcastsGoogle PodcastsStitcherPocket Casts, and Spotify! You can also listen to it right here on the Phoblographer.

When I was still starting this website, I used the Canon 5D Mk II and the 24-105mm f4 L IS USM. But for many years, my bread and butter setup was the Canon 35mm f1.4 L and the Canon 5D Mk II. This was the case until Sigma made an arguably better lens. And for every camera system I own, I’ve always reached for their 35mm lens–Leica L mount being the exception. Canon has been mostly redoing their L lenses from the EF mount but in RF mount. So realistically, we should expect to see a Canon 35mm f1.4 L with something special. I mean, look at that 100mm Macro lens they did! It looks so amazing!

You’ll Be Tempted By This Awesome Canon EOS R Kit

For more stories like this, please subscribe to The Phoblographer.

The Canon EOS R is a camera I still use pretty often. Thumbing the D-Pad to choose an autofocus point isn’t all that awful. It’s lightweight, weather-sealed, and can focus just as well as the Canon EOS R5 in most situations. Where the Canon EOS R falls a bit behind is with autofocus situational profiles and animal eye AF detection. But if you’re shooting portraits, that won’t be a problem. The Canon EOS R has the same sensor as the Canon 5D Mk IV, which is still in use with lots of photojournalists. And with the 35mm f1.8 STM bundled, you’ll gain image stabilization but won’t have full weather sealing. Just remember that when you change lenses to turn the camera off. Check out the bundle over at Amazon.

These Deals Might Convince You to Buy a New Canon Camera

The Canon EOS R can come with the 35mm f1.8 IS STM for only $2,298.

Despite the Canon EOS R5 being such a great camera, there’s something to be said for the original Canon EOS R. It’s small, lightweight, and incredibly durable. But what’s even better is it can come bundled with a 35mm f1.8 IS USM for a good price. This is probably one of the best lenses for the camera. It boasts image stabilization but not weather sealing. Regardless, the lens is fantastic and that sensor is still very good. So we found a few deals from Canon you’ll want to pay attention to right now.
