Canon EF 14-24 f/2.8L [CR2]

New Ultrawide Zoom
There has been chatter about the possibilty of this lens since the day after Nikon announced their highly regarded 14-24 lens.

The latest is we’ll see this lens announced within the next 12 months. As always, nailing down lens announcement dates is near impossible with Canon. It was suggested that the EF 14-24 f/2.8L would be announced after the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x begins shipping, suspected late in 2012 or the first half of 2013.

An EF 14-24 f/2.8L would complete a pretty remarkable range of lenses in the Canon lineup along with the EF 24-70 f/2.8L II, EF 70-200 f/2.8L II & the unannounced EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x.

Could it also be filterable (with a very large ring) for a circular polarizer?
