In Stock: RF 85mm f/2, RF 50mm f/1.8, Control Ring Adapter


Amazon and the Canon Direct Store direct store are showing stock of several hard to find and popular items. Amazon is showing stock of the RF 85mm F2 Macro IS STM and RF 50mm f/1.8 STM, and the Canon Direct Store store is showing stock of the EF-EOS R Control Ring Mount Adapter.

Note there have been many complaints about the Canon Store showing items as “in-stock” when they’re actually not available, so your mileage may vary.



In-Stock at B&H: RF 85mm f/2 Macro IS and RF 50mm f/1.8


B&H Photo Video is now showing stock of both the RF 85mm F2 Macro IS STM ($599.00) and the RF 50mm f/1.8 STM ($199.00). We would expect that this is limited stock and will sell quickly (just like other times retailers have had these highly coveted lenses available). Free shipping.



RF 50mm f/1.8 STM ($199) — Back In-Stock at Canon Direct Store

ES-65B Lens Hood (RF 50mm f/1.8 STM) for $26 (reg. $40)


If you’re looking for the ES-65B Lens Hood to go with the RF 50mm f/1.8 STM, the Canon Direct Store is discounting it to $25.99 (compare with a regular price of $40).

As with all desirable Canon items, this is out-of-stock here and everywhere, but you can backorder at this price.

RF 50mm f/1.8 Available December 3rd, RF 70-200 f/4L December 10th


B&H and Amazon are now showing availability dates on the newly announced lenses. The RF 50mm f/1.8 STM will be released on December 3rd or 4th with the RF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM showing a date of December 10th or 11th.

One neat feature of the RF 50mm f/1.8 STM is the switch that lets you toggle the function of the ring between manual focus and control ring — the nifty-fifty just got a bit niftier!

Given the recent supply issues on new product launches, we recommend a pre-order if you want to obtain one of these two lenses before the holiday season.

Please add these items to your watchlist if you’d like to be notified about future deals and availability.



Announced, Preorder: RF 50mm f/1.8, RF 70-200 f/4L, PIXMA PRO-200


Canon announced two new RF lenses and the PIXMA PRO-200 printer. All are now available for pre-order — if you are interested, pre-ordering is highly recommended, given all the recent supply issues on new product launches. We expect the RF 50mm f/1.8 STM to be especially popular given the price point.
