Canons new nifty fifty – the RF 50mm f / 1.8 STM Price Leaked

Just a day after our initial post – we’ve got an image of Canons new RF 50mm f 1.8 STM lens.

It’s no secret that Canon has been heavily investing in its full frame mirrorless lineup – the EOS R5 and R6 and a slew of RF lenses are a testament to that. Their range has been so successful that they are about to dethrone Sony from the fullframe spot.

Not wanting to rest on its laurels, Canon is currently working on releasing its first EOS R camera with an APS-C sensor, and they are preparing to release two new RF lenses – that is if we can believe the latest rumor that are coming from Nokishita.

Translated from Japanese:
“RF 70-200mm F4 L IS USM”, “RF 50mm F1.8 STM”, “Lens Hood ET-83G (WIII)” and “Lens Hood ES-65B” have been added to Canon’s latest product list.

The word on the street is that Canon has added the RF 70-200mm f / 4 L IS USM and the RF 50mm f / 1.8 STM to its product list, which indicates that they might present them in the next coming days.

Rumors have been floating around that Canon might be debuting a the new 50mm f/1.8 lens – so it wouldn’t be a surprise if they would announce it soon.

Canon RF 50mm F1.8 STM Price

With an official announcement / presentation coming ever closer – rumored to be this week in fact – the price of both the Canon RF 70-200MM F/4L IS and the RF 50mm F1.8 STM Lens have been leaked. According to the leak, the RF 70-200mm F4 will be $1.599 pre-tax.

The RF 50mm F1.8 STM Lens will be available for an affordable $199 pre tax. We would have guess that Canon would have priced the lens a tad higher, but it seems like they are really trying to target a new consumer base with this lens.
