Canon have built a pretty impressive lens lineup around the new RF mount in just a few short years, but as we come up to the 5th birthday of the first Canon EOS R camera in October later this year, we are taking a look at some of the Canon lenses from the DSLR era EF mount that are just calling out for an RF version.

This is not a comprehensive list, Canon made so many wonderful lenses for the EF mount that have not yet made it over to the RF mount that it would take me days to type up. I have judged these lenses on what I think people want, if there really is a need in the market, and on how likely it is Canon would ever actually make the lens.
