Canon RF 85mm 1.2L USM Product Images - Update

Nokishita has discoverd product images for the upcoming Canon RF 85mm 1.2L USM.

The actual real product announcement from Canon is expected shortly, sometime this week.  Prior rumors had it coming out on the 9th.  We may see a product announcement before that, depending on the timezone you are in.

Update 5:30PM EST

Further updates have the domestic price at 359,100 Yen and that lens will be available in late June.

Some quick math, Japan has around a 20% taxation rate, so the rate without tax would be around 287,280 Yen or around $2599 USD as a rough price for the Americas.  Don't use that as a final price, there's always some flexibility in between the Japan price and North American price, but it may be close to that.

As the only Auto focus capable 85mm F1.2 in existence, perhaps Canon feels they have some justification for the high price.  As a point of reference, the Canon EF 85mm 1.2L USM was released in 2006 for $2099, adjusted for inflation that would be $2650 in today's dollars.
