Canon is working on three new RF f/2.8 zoom lenses

We've seen some exciting pieces of glass from Canon since the RF mount was first launched – and it seems that Canon are continuing to push optical boundaries with their latest lens patents. These recently uncovered documents show that we could be seeing three potential lenses from the imaging giant, including a Canon RF 35-135mm f/2.8, a Canon RF 40-150mm f/2.8 and a Canon RF 30-110mm f/2.8.

However, while these three lenses certainly look interesting, it's not likely that we'll see all (or any!) of them come to market. There are two main reasons for this, with the first being that Canon is known for pumping out a steady stream of intriguing patents that never see the light of day.
