Canon EF 35 f/1.4L II to Finally Arrive? [CR1]

Canon EF 35 f/1.4L II
We received a a hands-on claim about a prototype Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II. We’re told that the lens is in the hands of select photographers and could be announced in the first half of 2014.

It’s said that the lens is slightly wider than the current version but weighs a bit less. The lens has a new type of coating on at least one of the elements. The version that was tested had a 77mm filter thread.

This lens has been long rumoured for replacement and a few patents (here and here) have shown up over the years. However, it’s sounding like we may finally get to see one in 2014.
