One of the most requested super telephoto lenses for the RF system is a Canon RF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM. The Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM has been discontinued for quite some time.

We have been told that Canon has prototypes out in the wild and that the lens is a ground-up redesign of the focal length.

The source claims that weight has been reduced by almost 40% and  the length by as much as 30% over it’s EF predecessor, though they didn’t have the exact dimensions and weight to give us.

Weight savings in lenses is something Canon has been pouring a ton of R&D into, and this revelation shouldn’t shock us.

We can reportedly expect to see the Canon RF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM some time in the first half of 2023.

Keep a close eye on the sidelines of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar in November.

More to come…
