Judging by a lot of the comments in this forum, there will be a fair few "please Canon, give us something like this".

Whilst I applaud Sony for starting to rollout some decent lenses, I do hope Canon sacrifices some of the size & weight saving for less of a reliance on heavy corrections when releasing their RF L 35mm.

f1.2 or f1.4, I'm not overly bothered at this focal length, but please just make it no bigger than the RF 50mm L.

Anyway, over to you Canon, to see what you've got...

Dear Canon PLEASE give us FINALLY modern fast 28mm prime. There are 4 35s already ( and I don’t care about 35mm FL) and NO 28 faster then 2.8. Id be perfectly happy with 500$ 28 1.8 similar to the 35 macro... but If there was epic 28 1.4 comparable to 50 and 85 1.2 Id start saving for sure too

35 is a very strong focal length. It is excellent for multi-row panoramas. And it is probably the most versatile prime focal length. 28 is fine but because it is wider it gives up a little resolution in panoramas, and it is ok but not as nice for portraits. 50 of course gives you a tighter portrait and still retains flexibility, but is a little too tight for group shots or panoramas.

Conventional wisdom is that 50mm is the ideal focal length for (vertical) panoramas.

There are a bazillion reasons why 50 isn't as good as 35 unless you just want that look but some people say the true FL of the eye is closer to 35 anyway so if that is why you're using 50 IMO you're wasting your time.

Just my opinion man!
