We don’t know much else about the camera, given that this is just a development announcement, but Canon also says that 9 RF lenses are scheduled for release during the next year. One of these lenses will be the RF 100-500 F4.5-7.1 L IS USM, Extender RF 1.4x and Extender RF 2x.

Samples of the new camera are expected to be on view at WPPI in Las Vegas at the end of the month.
