Yeah. What lunatic continues to buy gear they hate?
Yes. I agree about long lenses on mirrorless It doesn't make sense.
The market has clearly devided in segments:
1. DSLR system - Canon & Nikon are still the best choice for photogs
2. Compact high end & mirrorless systems - Sony & Fuji seem to have upper hand
BTW, why hasn't anyone considered some of those 8 lenses might be for cinema?And also EF-S and EF-M...
...I do not see how an EVF will ever even be as good as an OVF, let alone superior to one.
Mirrorless actually combines EVF (considered as a disadvantage by many DSLR users) and all the bulk of a DSLR. Plus light loss and possible degradation of IQ due to reflections on top. That's one of the reasons, why Sony is quitting their SLT line of cameras. Dead end!
There is no shame in copying Fuji when sales are falling. It...would...sell!
Canon used to be the undisputed leader of designing novel AF lenses. This is the company that gave us the TS-E 17/4L, 50/1.0L, 85/1.2L, MP-E 65/2.8, 135/2L, 200/1.8L, and 400/4L DO IS, among other amazing technologies. But all we see these days are uninspiring, conservative, incremental designs. Nothing that pushes the envelope, nothing that makes us feel like we just *have* to try this lens because it will let us get the shot that no other lens can.
I would be surprised to L versions of both the 14-24 and 16-50. Latter seems like an odd focal length for an L lens.
... makes 8 lenses. No big zooms. I wonder if someone just went through and counted up all of the patent and other rumors for Canon this year and created a new rumor?
Everyone thus far has forgotten to include the 16-50/L IS that was meant for this year:
2010: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=16.0 EF 16-50 f/4L H-IS
2013: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=15455.0 14-24 f/2.8L, EF 16-50 f/4L IS
2012: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=7362.0 14-24 after the 200-400.
8 lenses .. well let's see:
