Not only are you getting basically the same DOF/FOV as a FF Sensor, but you are also getting about 1 stop of exposure increase, so you can drop your ISO and get cleaner low-light images on your APS-C mirrorless bodies.

So basically a 50mm 1.8+Speed Boost on a Super 35mm sensor gives you roughly the same DOF/FOV as a 50mm 1.8 on a FF Body. That's is awesome. So, basically each lens you own will become two lenses with this adapter.

Canon has some stiff competition as the Sigma 35mm 1.4 is an incredibly sharp lens for under $1,000. I just don't see the new Canon 35mm 1.4 ll outclassing the Sigma in sharpness by enough to justify a huge premium over the Sigma. I'm guessing the Canon 35mm 1.4 ll will retail for around $1599.

MP count seems overkill on an APS-C sensor. I'm guessing we won't even see a whole stop in ISO improvements over the 7D.

What is the point of a expensive 24-70mm F/4 IS when there is already an excellent 24-105mm F4 IS that can be found used at a great price? Canon is thinking backwards.

I'm sure they will replace the majority of their old lenses with IS replacements.

Prepare to pay around $800 for such a lens.

Sigma 35mm 1.4 at $899

Canon 35mm F2 IS at $849

Canon is getting truly ridiculous with their prices. It's like they aren't interested in getting new customers anymore. Nikon has great bodies and lenses at a fair price without sacrificing too much in IQ.

Seriously, if Canon ever releases a 50mm 1.8 IS it's going to be priced at about $600. That is BS.

I would love to have an updated 50mm 1.8 with IS and 7 aperture blades, but I am not at all willing to spend $800 on 50mm lens.

I want all the video features from the 5D Mark lll, swivel screen and headphone jack. Hopefully a new sensor with a one stop improvement in noise at high ISO compared to the 7D. 

ISO 1600 looks pretty solid!!!   I wonder how it does in video mode.

I really hope something comes out in the APS-C range that offers cleaner high ISO performance than the current rebel line. The T2i starts to break apart at ISO 1600, so it would be really great if Canon has improved the sensor/noise performance.

Same old sensor?   ::)

In that case I would be interested in knowing how much can I get a used T2i for after this is announced...

Hopefully, it's a new 18MP sensor built from the ground up, but knowing Canon I doubt it. Probably just the same sensor with some slight tweaks and Digic V processor.

No headphone jack, no All-I compression, no mention of recording limit.

It also doesn't list manual white balance in kelvin. Why does Canon treat this like a premium feature?

Also, has the processor and sensor been updated?

Doesn't seem like a worthy upgrade if you already own a T3i.

This is even truer of the 200mm f/2.8. If that lens received IS and a $1,500+ price tag, only prime-obsessives would buy it. If ever there were a certain candidate for a lens not being replaced, this is it, IMHO.

Absolutely agree.  It was light enough to hand hold steady anyway.  My favourite lens I've ever owned (I had the later II with the snap on hood, would probably buy a mk1 if I saw one used)

IS is over-rated.  IMHO.

If you are using a fast L prime like a 200mm then you are using it to shoot subjects can only do better with a monopod.

Slow shutter is a con because by that point subject motion is more likely to cause blur.

What happened to breathe in, brace and motordrive.

A lot of folks out there screwing up plenty of decent designs with un-necessary and expensive extra electronics.

IS is very handy, especially when shooting video. Not everyone wants to lug around a huge rig to keep shots stabilized.

One lens that I hope Canon makes in the future.

50mm 1.8 with IS, Metal mount, 7 circular aperture blades and a smooth manual focus ring.  I'd glady pay up to $499 for this lens.
