Some eight months after the launch of Canon's super 35mm RF-mount EOS C70 cinema camera, the company looks set to produce its own native range of Canon RF cinema lenses.

A range of eight Canon RF cinema lenses looks likely to be released, each a fast prime ranging from 14mm T/1.5 to RF 135mm T/1.5 and likely with the same characteristics as the existing Sumire line of Canon prime cinema lenses for PL and EF mounts.
