Canon’s RF 15-35mm f/2.8 and 24-70mm f/2.8 Will Cost $2,300: Report

Photography Gear

In addition to the thoroughly leaked Canon 90D and Canon EOS M6 Mark II, the latest rumors indicate that Canon will also officially launch two of the previously-announced “holy trinity” lenses for RF-Mount this week: The RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS and the 24-70mm f/2.8L IS.

The latest report comes from Canon Rumors, who received reliable specs and pricing information about the upcoming lenses. According to CR’s sources, the Canon RF 15-35mm f/2.8L IS and Canon RF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS will both be announced tomorrow, August 28th; they’ll both start shipping in Late September; and they will both cost approximately $2,300.

If that pricing is accurate, Canon’s full-frame mirrorless RF 24-70mm f/2.8 will come in at the same price as the Nikon Z-Mount 24-70 announced earlier this year, and $100 more than Panasonic’s L-Mount 24-70 that was announced earlier today.

CR also received word that the upcoming RF 70-200mm f/2.8—the final lens in the so-called “trinity”—will be officially announced at a later date, before starting to ship in December at a slightly more expensive price tag than the other two.

Sounds like every manufacturer is preparing to have a big week. Panasonic just debuted a new camera and two lenses, Canon is going to release two cameras and two lenses, and there’s still time for Sony to swoop in and finish out the week with a couple cameras of their own.
