Introduction

Alongside the EOS RP, Canon has announced the next six lenses it plans to introduce for its RF mount. Don't be fooled by the timing: although they are being announced with the RP most of these lenses are not being targeted at entry-level or even mass-market customers.

Canon has already said it's working on a full frame mirrorless camera aimed at professionals, and most of today's development announcements make clear it intends to have appropriate lenses ready to suit it. All six lenses will be formally launched by the end of 2019, the company says.

Details are pretty scant right now (technically Canon is only announcing its intention to develop these lenses), but mockups of all six were on show at the pre-launch RP event.
