The "standard" zoom has just been questioned again, with the announcement of the new Canon RF 24-50mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM.

Launched as a kit lens accompaniment to the new Canon EOS R8, which was also joined by the new Canon EOS R50, the Canon RF 24-50mm f/4.5-6.3 IS STM can be purchased on its own or in a bundle with the R8. It takes the tally of RF lenses to a total of 33 and helps to expand the range.
