A Big Lens Announcement in September? [CR1]
« on: August 28, 2013, 07:12:48 PM »

Something in an L?

We’re told that there are tentative plans for a lens announcement sometime in late September and it would be a “big deal”.


No mention of what lens, and Canon doesn’t hold press events just for lenses.


We’re trying to find out more, as this came from a first time source. I expect the usual suspects will be talked about.

A "big" lens announcement?
Could it be a "big" lens announcement or perhaps the announcement of a new "big" lens.
I'm just aching with anticipation...

Canon is getting better at teasing us...   ;D

I think it's going to be a super-duper telephoto lens.  I'd like to think it's going to be a high resolution lens.  But not until it's closer to their big MP camera release...

If Canon is going to announce large MP bodies, it's time to start setting them up with lenses.  The 14-24mm f/2.8L would be such a lens.  Maybe a larger aperture 28-300?  A wide angle larger aperture prime like a 14mm f/2, f/1.8, or f/1.4 would fit the bill as well.

The 200-400 f/4 L IS already sold are too good and need to be recalled for crippling.

A 400mm 5.6 with IS would be nice.

Yes, is it a big lens, or a big announcement about a lens?

A big lens announcement would be a 1200F5.6 lens...... But I'll settle for an updated 400F5.6, it would be a lot easier to carry.

Seriously, though- I'm really hoping it's a 14-24 2.8L. I would buy that in a heartbeat.
