If you’re looking into buying a new Canon lens, I have some bad news. For the second time in five months, Canon has increased the prices of its EF and RF-mount lenses. Most of them have seen a $100 or $200 price increase, but it goes up to $1,000.
Here is the list of lenses that got more expensive:
- Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM ($499) – an $80 increase
- Canon RF 800mm F11 DO IS STM ($999) – a $100 increase
- Canon RF 600mm F11 IS STM ($799) – a $100 increase
- Canon RF 100-500mm F4-7.1L IS USM ($2899) – a $100 increase
- Canon RF 24-105mm F4 L IS USM ($1299) – a $200 increase
- Canon RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM ($1799) – a $200 increase
- Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM ($1299) – a $200 increase
- Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM ($1299) – a $200 increase
- Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II ($1999) – a $200 increase
- Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM ($1499) – a $200 increase
- Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM 1.4x ($11,999) – a $1,000 increase
As I mentioned, this is the second time in a pretty short period of time that Canon has increased the prices of its lenses. It first happened in September 2021, when the company allegedly did it due to the pandemic. It’s possible that the pandemic-induced chip shortage is the reason now too. I looked for the official announcement, but it was nowhere to be found. So, it looks like Canon once again did it “behind the scenes.”
