Earlier this year, Canon announced the development of six new RF mount lenses. While some of them are already available for orders, Canon has left us waiting longer for RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM, RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM. But, according to some sources, there’s not much more to wait. The “holy trinity” of lenses could be coming as soon as this week, and we already know the prices. Well, at least the rumored ones.

When it comes to the prices of the three new lenses, Canon Rumors has recently obtained them. They were expressed in Thai Bahts, so the USD pricing was derived after a conversion:

  • Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM: 82,600 THB – $2,499 USD
  • Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM: 82,600 THB – $2,499 USD
  • Canon RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM: 93,500 THB – $2,799 USD

As for the availability of the new lenses, i was initially reported that they would be announced and ready for orders in late July, but it didn’t happen. According to Mirrorless Rumors, Canon will announce the three new lenses on 28 August. Still, they may not be immediately ready for orders. Canon Rumors writes that The RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM and RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM will begin shipping in October, and you’ll have to wait till December for the RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM.

According to Mirrorless Rumors, the Canon EOS M6 Mark II will be announced on the same day as the new lenses. However, there’s no word on availability and shipping yet. In case you’re anxious to see its specs, they leaked a few days ago and you can check them out here. And I guess we’ll have to wait for Wednesday for more details on the exact prices and availability. Considering that the promo video and the photos have leaked, I believe that we will indeed see the announcement very soon.

    If the 70-200 is THAT compact then they have a killer lens !

      I was just thinking same…. Or then others are as huge as the 70-200! But those should be small, comparing to mount size!

      If so, that is truly the holy Trinity!

    Not cheap, but likely better image quality than the EF mount models. A camera is just a light-tight box with film or a sensor inside. The lens has a much bigger effect on image quality.

    I hate my EF 24-70/2.8L version 1. In fact, almost all zooms suck compared to primes. I use Sigma 24/1.4 Art, RF 50/1.2L and EF 85/1.4L IS instead of any 24-70/2.8 zoom. I miss the flexibility very rarely, but probably not enough to buy this new RF 24-70/2.8L, even with IS added.

    As long as camera controls and menu are logical, the viewfinder is clear and frames accurately, and it gives raw files with reasonably low noise at high ISO, I don’t care if it’s a fancy cardboard box. Well, I might from a durability standpoint, but you get the idea.

    Most impressive. But I don’t see them winning with this lineup. Canon hasn’t quite enticed Canon DSLR pros with what they’ve come out with yet. Photo agencies aren’t supporting the mirrorless market yet. I’m a working photographer and I want it but am I ready to just place 100% faith in this system after already have invested tens of thousands of hard earned dollars in glass to forsake my current ones just yet? I’m worried about the longevity of the bodies because after only a year of shooting about 6 jobs a week taking around 2000 photos per job I’ve already broke the shutter on my Sony a73 and now I’m considering switching back to Canon DSLR. If I were to make that switch off have to wait at least 3 generations of Canon ffm to consider dropping almost 3k/lens to replace each one of my workhorse L glass. I’m excited for Canon but I’m not excited for my pockets

    Yawn.
    Can’t believe I was ever such a Canon fanboy. I feel bad selling my old Canon stuff now.
    It’s not that it’s bad gear. They are just so stodgy and conservative.
    Still do not understand why they went to mirrorless but kept an almost identical form factor?
    The Fuji I upgraded to is much better adapted to street photography (for my uses at least).
    And the majority of Fuji’s lenses are just phenomenal. they don’t have clunkers and rockstars. They are all really good glass, with quite a few being perfect.

      Stodgy & conservative? Canon’s RF glass is unrivaled and they will continue to release lenses that their competition can only dream of delivering.
