Canon is expanding the RF series lens lineup and will introduce more glass for the full-frame mirrorless system.

From  CR :

One of the sources claims that an RF 135mm lens was shown in a roadmap presentation, but no speed or other specifications were shown, though “f/1.4 or f/1.8” was verbally mentioned. However, it was listed as coming in “late 2020+”.
