Clarification & Corrections on the Upcoming New Lenses from Canon [CR3]

Further clarification and corrections on our previous reports regarding the new tilt-shift lenses that are coming.

We’re told that we were incorrect on the TS-E 45mm f/2.8L and that it is in fact a TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro, the TS-E 90mm f/2.8L was correct, except that it to, will have macro functionality. We also assumed that all of the lenses are f/2.8L, but we’re told that the TS-E 135mm is actually an f/4L with macro capability.

The macro feature is 1:2 and not 1:1 across all three of the new tilt-shift lenses.

We also received further information in regards to the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS, a lens I’m looking forward to.

The new tilt-shift lenses

  • TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro
  • TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro
  • TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro
  • All these new tilt-shift lenses have 1:2 (0.5x) macro magnification

Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM

  • Positioned between the EF 85mm f/1.2L II and the EF 85mm f/1.8
  • Same styling as the new EF 35mm f/1.4L II
  • Fast AF and a 4 stop effective IS.

All of this is still [CR2] until we get the confirmation that makes us comfortable with upgrading the rating of the rumor. This round of lenses has been extremely hard to get information on, but we do hope we have now got the correct information.

We’re still told everything is coming at the end of August.

Update: 18:09 EST, August 12, 2017: We’ve upgraded this information to [CR3]
