Canon to focus lens development on Canon RF
In a recent interview with DCW, DigitalCameraWorld, Richard Shepherd, pro product marketing senior manager at Canon Europe stated;
As you know, last year we launched the RF mount and EOS R system. To date we’ve launched ten critically acclaimed lenses, and as it’s a new system we plan to continue this, launching more RF lenses while still fully supporting the EF lens system. And of course, should the market demand it, we are ready to create new EF lenses. But for now, our focus is on RF.
I don't think this is much of a surprise. With the RF mount needing probably at least 20-30 new lenses, there's no doubt that the RF system is the priority right now. I suspect that something similar is going on at Leica and Nikon as well, the newer mounts required huge investments by the companies, and they are going to focus their development on areas that stand to grow the most.
