There was no hint of the rumoured Canon camera announcement today. Not even a teaser or new info. But what we did get was the Canon RF 13-35mm f/4L IS USM lens. Announced today, the new lens is designed for Canon’s full-frame RF mount mirrorless system and presents a slightly lower budget alternative to the Canon 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM.
Coming in at $1,699, it’s not exactly budget-friendly, but if you’re willing to lose a stop, it’s significantly less expensive than the $2,299 the 15-35mm f/2.8 demands. That $600 price difference will be a big deal to those who want an ultra-wide walkaround lens and don’t need that extra stop of low light performance. It’s also smaller, lighter and takes 77mm screw-on filters.
