Canon may be releasing ‘Holy Trinity’ lenses for RF mount

According to Canon Rumors, Canon is set to launch its ‘Holy Trinity’ of L-series lenses for its full-frame mirrorless RF mount cameras in the near future.

Canon’s ‘Holy Trinity’ reportedly consists of the 15-35mm, 24-70mm and 70-200mm f/2.8. If these reports are true, it will for sure be a big step for Canon. The Canon EOS R has been missing the trio of professional native lenses. We should be seeing these three lenses come out sometime in July.

Is it just a rumor?

The report comes from Canon Rumors. It site did some deep digging into an official announcement of optics. The site reports: “all three ‘should’ be officially announced and available at the same time, and likely before the end of July 2019.”

Canon Rumors has some credibility as a source or predictions. Recently, they predicted the announcement of Canon’s RF 85mm f/1.2L USM this week. That lens was announced today.

‘Holy Trinity’ for pros

It’s likely these three lenses will be popular among professional Canon users. They cover a lot of different ground. According to the report: the RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM works for wide-angle shooting, so think landscapes and environment shots. The RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM is a standard zoom and the RF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM is a telephoto lens for wildlife and sports shooting.

Reportedly, they will all have a f/2.8 aperture and are a part of Canon’s red-ringed L-series.

Canon has six lenses planned for its full-frame mirrorless camera by the end of 2019. These three RF lenses would already fulfill half of those promised lenses. We just have to wait and see if the Canon Rumors report is accurate.
