QuoteBut please remember that if canon keep on releasing lenses at the rate we want, it will be a lens every year
well some lenses are old and need a replacement.
you know how old some of the canon lenses are?
with todays technology there could be a huge jump in IQ.
just look at the 70-200mm f2.8 IS II or the new 300mm f2.8 IS II lenses.
looking at canons past, a new version every 3-5 years would come as a suprise.
im in fact suprised that there is a rumor about a 70-200mm f4 IS II.
the current model was released in november 2006.
the EF 17-40mm is nearly 10 years old.
the EF 50mm f1.4 is 20 years old i think.
the EF 35mm f1.4 is from 1998.
the EF 300mm f4 IS is from 1997
the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L is from 2002.
the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS is from 1998
and these are lenses i sell a lot more often then 500mm or 600mm lenses.
so to be honest... i think we all have waited long enough.... don´t you think?
Indeed! Let us grab the torches and pitch forks! On a serious note, though, before the Earthquake, Canon was in the process of overhauling its line up, starting with the big whites. Hopefully, they will continue, now that things have settled...
