Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Replacement Finally Coming? [CR1]

Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 USM Replacement Finally Coming? [CR1]

We’re told that an EF 50mm f/1.4 nano USM lens is finally in active development. Most of the Canon world has been waiting for a replacement to the 25 year old EF 50mm f/1.4. The rumors of replacement have flown since the beginning of this site. We usually ignore most of the 50mm rumors, but this one has some legitimacy to it.

The new lens will not have IS and will use the nano USM motor we’re told.

If this lens does come in 2017, we’re told the announcement would be late into Q4. So it looks like this will be a lens that will ship in 2018.

More to come…

*Correction*
The post should have said “Nano” instead of “Micro” when describing the USM motor.
