Are we going to meet the Canon RF 70-135mm f/2L USM Lens in 2021? Here are the latest updates on the Canon RF 70-135mm f/2L USM Lens rumors. We already know that Canon is currently testing a 70-135mm f/2L lens. This lens would be the first of it’s kind and was scheduled for late 2020. However looks like it has been delayed due to coronavirus and this impacted the release of the lens.
Canon’s introduction of the RF 28-70mm f/2L in 2019 set the groundwork for a totally new generation of fast zoom lenses. Canon RF 70-135mm f/2L USM Lens rumor is exciting as the f/2 aperture that is offered in this focal range will be very attractive for EOS R users.
Since upcoming Canon EOS R5 and Canon EOS R6 both have in-body image stabilization, it will be easier to guess that the upcoming RF 70-135mm f/2L USM lens will not have IS. In this way it will save the weight. It sounds like a dream lens for portrait photographers.
If this Canon RF 70-135mm f/2L USM Lens rumor is true, it fits with past rumors that Canon plans to create a “holy trinity” of f/2 lenses that will complete the lineup with a RF 16-28mm f/2. By the way the “holy trinity” RF mount lenses” by the end of 2021 are RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens, RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS and RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS.
