UPDATE: The first images of the Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM lens have been leaked online, indicating that earlier reports about Canon's first dedicated macro lens for the EOS R system were correct. 

While the images of the Canon RF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM are very low resolution, we can make out that it has the same three switch controls as its DSLR counterpart, the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM: focus limiter, AF / MF and Stabilizer on / off. In addition to the standard issue Canon RF control ring, however, there is one big difference on the new optic: "SA control".
