Canon's two latest RF lenses, the Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 and Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 – are now in stock and shipping, albeit in very limited quantities. 

While many folks will no doubt be waiting for the Black Friday camera deals to see what kind of savings are available on lenses, the Canon RF 16mm f/2.8 STM and Canon RF 100-400mm f/5.6-8 IS USM are both very affordable optics – making them a great pickup in their own right, or for anybody looking to grab some new glass without breaking the bank.
