I call this a fake. Some reasons:
1. No space between the "EF" and the "11-24" in the screenshot. This is inconsistent with the other lenses on that page.
2. A typo in "Vollformat", in the screenshot there is just one "l" which is wrong.
3. I am a native german speaker. The text sounds somewhat fishy to me, not in the way Canon would say it.
4. Everybody can edit a web page and make a screenshot of it.
In fairness, the (sort of) smoking gun that would tip the needle from "it's a rumor" to "I think this is happening" would be a live Canon URL that we can look up. That conveniently doesn't exist anymore, does it?
Yeah, there's no URL in the "screenshot". Another hint. And I was unable to get to a page that looks like the one in the "screenshot" when browsing http://www.canon.de/
Why not try again on the Canon CPN site instead, as it said in the post?
