Latest "crazy" Canon EOS R lens is an ultra-fast zoom: Canon RF 50-80mm f/1.1

Canon has designed an ultra-fast portrait zoom lens for its full-frame mirrorless R system: the Canon RF 50-80mm f/1.1.

Much has been made of the "crazy" lenses that can potentially be produced for Canon's RF mount system, which accommodates optical formulas only possible with its 54mm diameter, 20mm flange back distance and 12-point electrical contacts.

The Canon RF 50-80mm f/1.1, however, takes that crazy to a whole new level. It would be the manufacturer's fastest ever lens for the Canon EOS R – and close to its fastest ever lens period, behind only the legendary Canon EF 50mm f/1.0L USM.
