EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM & EF 16-35 f/4L IS Around the Corner? [CR2]

EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM & EF 16-35 f/4L IS Around the Corner? [CR2]

More reports [DCI] have popped up today about two new wide angle zoom lenses from Canon. We reported about this yesterday and there has now been some clarification of what the lenses will be.

The first will be an EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM. The EF-S 10-22 f/3.5-4.5 would probably stay current even after the new EF-S 10-18 f/4.5-5.6 IS STM is announced. I imagine the new EF-S lens is smaller, lighter and cheaper. The rumor from yesterday seems to have missed the mark on this lens being a constant aperture of f/4. Though more clarification may be forthcoming.

The second will be an EF 16-35 f/4L IS, which will be the exciting one for a lot of people. For the record, a patent for the EF 16-35 f/4L IS appeared in March of this year.

There has been no more information on a new EF 100-400.

More to come….
