I posted the question of what lens you’d like to see Canon make, the only rule is it had to be somewhat realistic. No “RF 10-1000mm f/1L IS 1.4-2.0x USM” sort of suggestions.
I started with a lens I have wanted for the EF mount, and now I’d like to see it for the RF mount. I love the 28mm focal length and I’d love a nice fast L version for the upcoming EOS R5.
What's a "realistic" lens you would like to see Canon make?
Canon RF 28mm f/1.2L USM.

What about a super-fast wide-angle astrophotography prime?
14mm f/1.2 for astro… Doable, useful, unique, and a good compliment to the Canon Ra

How about a short fast zoom with IS?
RF 20mm-50mm f2 IS

SIGMA did this, but as a zoom, so I guess it’s “realistic”!
