Did you ever have the Canon EF 50mm f1.4? Not as fast as the f1.2, but far more affordable and a lens that is missing on the R system. Canon Rumors says that they have received numerous tips that Canon will bring a RF mount version, but like most lens tips, the credibility of the information is in doubt.

    We've received many rumors of new RF lenses, but very few come to market. The most accurate lens rumours was published by Canon Rumors in November, 2020, with very little else coming since that was credible. We've got pages of lenses that have been rumoured since 2019, but no further information like the RF 35mm f1.2.

    The RF 50mm f14 is in the hands of a select few photographers and that an announcement is not imminent. Perhaps Canon is waiting for the new year. No further information was forth coming. 

    We all love a good 50mm, and while lenses like the RF 50mm f1.2 provide superior optics, the market place is lacking affordable glass. The RF 50mm f1.4 would appeal to many, but the question isn't when the RF 50 f1.4 comes out, but when will Canon release more affordable lenses like the RF 50mm f1.4.
