Any chance they'll kit this with the next Rebel?

Also, who'd want a 50mm f14?
Yeah, but I actually find I use my 70-200 for a lot of landscape shots. I don't always have a tripod with me, but 1/10th or 1/15th is enough to blur a water falling. Or it might be the difference between shooting the landscape at f/4 or f/8.
I went with the IS version because it was sharper, but I think I've found some use for the IS here and there.
Any reason you need IS for that 70-200 f/4? I don't have it on mine, and I haven't missed it. Then again, 90% of my images use a tripod.
If you hand hold (event shooter), then the IS is priceless. Especially at the longer focal lengths! Will also help negate (to some degree) the slower apperature by allowing one to use slower shutter speeds.
Knowing canons pricing system, expect 2000$ and up.
But if you want to "speed up" the aperture, then you need to make it bigger. My original post was to re-design the 50 f/1.4, not turn it into a 50 f/1.x, where x is <4. I understood what the guy meant...in that context it just didn't make sense. Of course, it could have been a language issue, as I understand that CR attracts readers from all over the globe.
The comment was a facetious observation that the title of the thread says f/14, not f/1.4.
Move along folks.
My dream 50mm f/14 has a faster aperture...
I guess I don't understand this statement. Aperture is a size, not a speed...
You are "technically" correct in saying that aperture is a size, not a speed. But colloquially a "larger" aperture lens (or which is colloquially known as "glass") is addressed as a "faster" lens. So "faster" aperture means "larger" aperture. But I am not really clear why "faster" is used. May be because it allows for (relatively) faster shutter speeds at the maximum aperture or may be for some other reason.
im not very tempted to update my second body, a 550D, to this.
i would like to have a new crop body.. but i guess it´s the old sensor and i don´t need video enhancements.
I don't think I have ever even considered using any of my fast primes, except the 24 and 17 at apertures narrower than 2,0. 5,6 comparison? Not why you buy 1,2 lens.
I wanted to purchase a 50mm 1.2 but wanted to know if a new 50mm will be coming out soon. Putting budget aside, would you get a 50mm 1.2 or a 1.4?
let it all ride on black and then start a post about having 8k to spend and not know what to do with it.
