Two Lenses to be Announced Shortly.....
« on: November 04, 2012, 05:21:14 PM »
*UPDATE 2*
A new 50mm will be coming in 2013, as the 35 f/2 gets replaced with a new IS version. The EF 24-70 f/4L IS definitely coming, which we knew for sure. I’m willing to wager the pricing below is also not accurate. I probably shouldn’t have posted unconfirmed information about these 2 lenses so quickly.  

*UPDATE*
Below is some unconfirmed information in regards to price and weight of the new EF 24-70 f/4L IS, rate it as [CR1] for now.

  • EF 24-70 f/4L IS $849 and weighing 545g
  • EF 50 f/1.4 IS $799

As mentioned earlier, I’m confident about the new 24-70, but the 2nd lens, I’m not 100% sure on. There are so many coming down the pipeline.

Two New Lenses
We hear that Canon will announce two new lenses very shortly.

We’re pretty sure one of them will be the EF 24-70 f/4L IS, still working out the second one. There are lots of candidates including the 14-24 f/2.8L, 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS, 50 f/1.4, 50 f/2 IS, 135 f/2L IS and the 35 f/1.4L II.

More to come…..

Sounds plausible. a new standard fullframe prime and a stadard-zoom. would fit the 6D niceley. My guess: both reasonable quality (in Line with 24mmIS, 28mmIS, 40mm STM) and pricing at something like 600$-700$ for the prime and 950$ for the Zoom. without the "L" ofc.

I doubt that it's a f1.4 aperture with IS for the prime, but apart from that...let's see :)

Im curious though.

What if they were to release a 50mm Prime that was aimed at video users, and also the 24-70mm too. Say both at f2.8 or higher. Maybe even make the diameter a standard 77m across the range.

Sure the photography guys wont be happy, especially if they had gearing for follow focus's built in and internal zooming/focusing it could be a pretty big seller for the guys that use 5D's, 1D's and C100/300 for video.

Yes, i shoot video on a DSLR.

Does the 200-400 L IS x1.4 count as already having been "announced"?
We know it's out there in the wild testing, puts it a rung above others like a 50mm that only surfaced last week (rumour-wise).
Too much gear, too little space.

Yes these are the most likely. That 50 replacement has been coming for years now! Not sure it will be a f/1.4 though, as it would cannabalise sales of the 50 f/1.2L.

Want want want WANT 14-24mm f/2.8L.  I'm sick of Nikon owning this range, and would love for a good IQ UW.

I could easily make a 14-24mm my next lens purchase if it came to fruition.

I'm holding my thumbs for the 14-24L or a 16-35 III.

Edit: Why no "CR-rating" on this rumor?

two EF-L lenses? I must be dreaming! From the past I would think if anything one would be an ef-L and the other is an ef-s?!

Like many I would love to see (and buy) a Canon 14-24 f/2.8L and a 50 1.4 with good image and build quality a long long time ago...
...so Canon decided to make a 24-70 f/4L IS, and I wouldn't be surprised if the 2nd would be a 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS
(announced now and delivered 6 to 8 months later, or 68 months later ;) )

Doesn't really matter. It will be months before you ever see one. What happened to the 200-400 that was all over the place at the Olympics? Pictures of it in the wild emerged a long, long time ago and nothing to be said.

It hasn't been officially announced yet, big difference, in case that escaped you

It still doesn't matter, months pass even after they are announced.  How long ago was the 500 and 600 II's announced?  They have only recently started becoming available.  Don't hold your breath with Canon, it will drive you crazy.
