Canon Announces New VR Lens: RF5.2mm F2.8 Dual Fisheye

CanonVR LensCanon has introduced an interchangeable lens capable of stereoscopic 3D 180° VR shooting to a single image sensor.  It is called the RF5.2mm F2.8 Dual Fisheye lens and will be available in late December 2021 at $1,999US.  It's compatible with the EOS R5 Mirrorless Digital Camera.  The dual high-performance L-series fisheye lenses combine imagery onto a single image sensor to help simplify 3D workflows by eliminating the need to sync and stitch multiple video files.
