Title: Guesses on lenses for Photoplus
Post by: kirispupis on October 24, 2012, 02:39:49 PM
We'll know this for sure within a few days (hours?) but I thought I would take a stab at what lenses they'll announce.

Most likely
35mm 1.4 II - priced somewhere between $1700-$2100
200-400/1.4x - priced at $10k

Possibilities
TS-E 90 II - magnification near .5x, similar updates to other TS lenses, priced at $2100
TS-E 45 II - similar updates to other TS lenses, priced at $2100
400/5.6 II - much sharper.  Has new gen IS.  Priced at $2300.
300/4 II - much sharper, takes extenders better. Has new gen IS.  Priced at $2300

Unlikely
100-400 II - no more push/pull, much sharper and faster.  Priced at $3000.
135/2 II - Priced at $1900.
MP-E 65 II - Significantly better optics, maybe increased magnification.  Priced at $2300.

Not happening
14-24 - Maybe an "in development" announcement, which means 2014

I'm hoping for a 35L 1.4 II - I'm not missing shots by not having it at present so can afford to wait for a while  :)

Ouch! $1900 for a new 135? That would be more than double the current. Even by Canon's latest price standards I think that'd be a bit out of whack.

Maybe price and availability of the Samyang 24mm TSE?  That would be cool.

I bought the 135L in May when it was on rebate, figuring the new one would be 2x the cost....may be years before I find out if I was right!  Honestly love it the way it is.  One of my favorite lenses.

I'm hoping for a new 35 L II aswell... weathersealing is a major drawback with the old, and seeing the color and contrast  of the 24 compared makes me want the 35 as good.

I am hoping for a 135/1.8L with 5-stops of IS and 400/5.6L with 5-stops of IS being announced in Photoplus.

+1

What a lens that would be. And it would be heavy, even without the IS.

Sony has one without IS and it weighs 985g. So one can assume it will weigh about 1kg with IS?

Well all these seemed more like a wish list anyway and nothing more...

It was a bit more than a wish list.  I based it off news here on CR and what Canon has released recently.  The 35/1.4 II has popped up here numerous times and Canon long ago announced the 200-400/1.4x.  The 400/5.6 and 300/4 are AFAIK the oldest lenses in Canon's lineup.  The TS-E 90 and TS-E 45 are due for upgrades similar to the TS-E 24 II.

The MP-E 65 II was wish list - I'll give you that. :)  However Canon has filed a patent for an update, so it is at least something they are thinking about.

I must admit I am disappointed Canon did not release anything for Photoplus.  I really thought they would.  I'm a bit glad though.  I just finished purchasing some equipment and have little budget left.

Released in 1993 and 1999, respectively, they're merely middle-aged in the lineup.  The two non-L TS-E lenses you mention are from 1991.  The 20/2.8 is from 1992, the 100/2 is from 1991, the 35/2 is from 1990, and the 50/2.5 compact macro and 135/2.8 SF are from 1987 (I think those are the oldest lenses in the current lineup).

I just want them to release a 14-24L,  or a 16-35L III , or a 17-40L II.

Don't care which one it is. I just want a sharp UWA-zoom from Canon, and I want it now.  :P

Hopefully we'll get a lens and d-slr announcement (30+mp d-slr?) within the next few weeks as Nikon has announced a 70-200 f/4 VR and plans for a D5200 announcement next week.

I hope you are right!

And I do like your name. Please come and sit on my camera.  :P

Thought 300 f4 IS introduced March 97. Agree with all other dates

Those prices seem kind of steep.....then again I guess that's been a trend with Canon recently, but still high.
