Lenses / Patent: Supertelephoto DO Lenses With Macro Features
« on: December 21, 2012, 08:59:41 PM »
400mm, 600mm and 800mm DO Lenses
Patents have shown up showing new DO optical formulas with 2:1, 1:1 and 1:4 macro functions.

Adding macro functionality to super telephoto lenses would be a pretty cool feature. It’s also good to see DO patents continue to show up, it’d be nice to see new DO lenses.

It’s not coming soon

There are plans to release an EF 24-70 f/2.8L IS sometime in the next 18 months. I have confirmed from two sources that the end of 2013 or early 2014 is the earliest we’d see a production model announced.

There are no plans for a non-IS 24-70 f/4L.

Lenses / Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L Non-IS to Be Discontinued in 2013 [CR2]
« on: December 17, 2012, 05:17:03 PM »
Time’s up
The Canon EF 70-200 f/2.8L non-IS is set to be discontinued officially some time in 2013. As much as I think there is still a market for this lens with sports & wedding photographers with pro bodies with great high ISO performance, there’s no information saying Canon will do a version II of this lens.

In case you were wondering, the EF 70-200 f/4L is remaining current with no plans for a discontinuation.

Canon General / New Photographer Profile - Wayne Simpson
« on: December 17, 2012, 12:37:26 PM »

Introducing Wayne Simpson

After a long hiatus, we are continuing our photographer profiles here at Canon Rumors. They’ve been popular and very well received in the past, don’t ask me why I stopped doing them. These will be coming at a more regular pace from here on in.

It’s always great to meet working photographers and help give them some exposure. We talk lots about a gear, which is a lot of fun. However, it’s good to see what people are doing with the stuff.

Wayne is a working wedding and nature photographer based in Calgary, Alberta presently. He’ll be moving to Ontario, Canada in the coming months, my neck of the woods as a matter of fact. Please check out his profile and some of his work.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III w/24-105 f/4L IS Kit for £2499

Thanks Richard

New Canon 50 f/1.2
A new patent has surfaced that shows a new design for an EF 50 f/1.2 lens. The current 50L has somewhat of a mixed reputation due to some focus shift.

Also shown is potentially a 50 f/2 for a full frame mirrorless camera as it mentions a 22mm back focus distance. Keith at [NL] is reading the patent that way, and that interpretation looks plausible. If anyone is better at reading and interpreting the patent than we are, please let us know.

  • Example 1
    • Focal length f = 51.70mm
    • Fno. 1.25
    • Half angle of view ω = 22.71 °
    • Image height 21.64mm
    • 105.65mm length lens
    • BF 40.00mm
    • Nine 6 groups lens configuration
    • One one aspherical surface
    • Maximum effective diameter 45.16mm
  • Example 4
    • Focal length f = 50.00mm
    • Fno. 2.06
    • Half angle of 23.40mm
    • Image height 21.64mm
    • Length 72.62mm lens
    • BF 28.86mm
    • Eight four group lens configuration
    • No aspherical
    • Maximum effective diameter 33.34mm

Lenses / 2013 - The Year for 400mm Lenses? [CR1]
« on: December 16, 2012, 10:45:51 AM »
400mm Everywhere!
I have received various bits of info over the last few months about Canon’s plans in the 400mm range. There is lots of desire for a new 400 f/5.6L and 100-400, and both may finally be getting an update. It feels like the 100-400 has been in the update cycle forever, but judging by how many of these things Canon sells, I can see why they’ve been in no rush to have it replaced.

Below are lenses that are apparently in prototype form and are on tap to be announced in 2013.

  • EF 400 f/5.6L IS (Highly desired)
  • EF 400 f/4L IS (Not DO)
  • EF 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS (Not push-pull & patents exists)
  • EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x (Long known about)

There seems to be a theme developing with Canon offering more options in the same focal length range. Best guess pricing will also have a pretty wide range, from a $2000 400 f/5.6L IS up to the $11,000 EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x.
