This is a complete list of every Canon RF Lens, updated regularly.
I broke this list up into pages, so I could put a little more information on each section about each brand. Let me know it’s not working for you.
Canon has very quickly filled out their RF lineup and already have a complete zoom package with lenses ranging from 15mm to 240mm.
Sigma announces they would be making actual mirrorless lenses rather than DSLR lenses tuned for mirrorless. We can also expect more real mirrorless lenses from other third-party manufacturers instead of just DSLR lenses with extension tubes. I can imagine it will be tricky designing lenses for Sony, Panasonic, Canon and Nikon now that they all have dramatically different mount sizes. They’ll probably just design them around the smallest mount (Sony) then adapt from there.
What does it mean to make a mirrorless lens?
It means you can design a lens that has a rear element that is incredibly close to the sensor. This allows for more flexibility when it comes to design. But this isn’t anything new or special. Fujifilm has already been designing lenses like this for their APS-C system for years. It does allow them to implement new and interesting optical formulas without making the lenses larger, like all internal focus lenses that are weather-sealed seen in the XF 35mm f2.
Canon has also improved some lens coatings and optics over the years, so when these lenses are all updated, you can expect to see the best technology Canon has to offer.
Canon RF Lens List
Canon has a new design philosophy with theses RF lenses, which is to keep the lenses lighter and more customizable. A lot of people say they feel plasticky, but from my experience, they feel very good, very high quality. Canon is just using a thinner plastic outer shell than what they traditionally have used in the past. I think people are forgetting that Canon lenses have had a plastic outer shell for a very long time now.
Regarding the electronic manual focusing, it’s the best I’ve used so far. You can get very accurate with it and it feels very natural, better than any other brand in my opinion.
You have some MF focus ring sensitivity options so you can set the focus ring to change with rotation speed or you can link it to rotation degree. If you link it to a rotation degree it works almost exactly the same as a manual lens. You can also adjust the direction of the rotation of the manual focus ring.
Canon RF Prime Lens List
Canon began the RF mount with a focus on very high-quality ultra-fast f1.2 lenses. These are without a doubt the best f1.2 lenses ever made.
Following the f1.2 lenses, Canon has shifted some of its focus to non-L f1.8 lenses. Currently, they have a 35mm f1.8 IS lens that has some really good performance for the price and Canon is expected to release a 50mm and 85mm later this year.

Canon RF Zoom Lens List
Canon now has a full range of f2.8 zoom lenses that expand from 15mm all the way up to 200mm, as well as some variable aperture lenses and a great 28-70mm f2 lens. Unfortunately, there still aren’t a lot of lightweight f4 lenses other than the 24mm-105mm.
