I really doubt Canon delivering a 24-70 f/4 IS for $849 with the recent lens prices they charge. ???

The 24-105 is $1149 (bh) right now, so I too doubt $849.

So instead of a 400 5.6L IS, 100-400 L II, 35 1.4L II, 14-24 we will get these 2 stupid lenses?  :o

I wonder if they will discontinue the 50mm f/1.4.  Considering the price difference, I can't imagine there will be that much of a demand for the IS.
Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

I wish a 50 macro to replace the old one. Canon has no EF lense (only the 60 EF-S)  that is macro below the 100mm.

Anybody care to elaborate on what "shortly" means?  The whole gist of this post makes it sound like it's a matter of hours.  Should I be checking back at midnight eastern?

If the 50 IS comes - it will be 2.0 or slower. We seem to be getting slower with IS on new glass.

You're probably basing that on the 24/2.8IS & 28/2.8IS, but you have to remember fast standard primes are much easier (cheaper) to make and more necessary than fast wide primes.  If there's any way they can keep it 1.4 and still meet their cost targets I'm sure they will.

I wonder what the design/manufacturing challenges are for implementing IS on a lens as fast as f/1.4.  IS would be nice on a 50 f/1.4, as that could give hand-hold-ability to somewhere in the region of 1/6 to 1/4 sec.

With a lens like that, I could see a lot of happy owners of the current 50 f/1.4 being prepared to buy a new lens.

I've already got the EF 50/1.8, Takumars 50/1.4 & 55/1.8 & 55/2.0, FL 55/1.2, Zeiss 50/4.0 (x3), OM 50/3.5 macro, and just recently a Schneider Retina 50/2.8 (in the post).

And with all of them, even I'd be interested in an EF 50/1.4 IS. You can never have too many fifties...

Just recently bought the 135mm f/2 L
I can't imagine a 135mm f/2 IS. That would make this lens around 1800 to 2000 euro and more heavy too. If, then maybe f/2.8
I still consider my 24-105 f/4 a good value and would not trade it for the 24-70 f/4. I took it for the focal length at 105 that serves me well as a general purpose outdoors. But I can understand the 6D needs a lighter and smaller kit-lens.
As for the 50mm, I really like to see a f/1.4 better than the current version and competing the bokeh of the Sigma 50mm f/1.4. A lower aperture (i.e. f/2 and up) would not be attractive to me.
Now the 14-24 f/2.8 is a lens I really look forward to. But this kind of lens will probably not arrive in the next year (or two years)

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


There are suppliers with pre-orders online:

The 24-105 is $1149 (bh) right now, so I too doubt $849.

The difference between the 70-200/2.8 II IS USM and the 70-200/4 IS USM is $650. Using that as a guide, that would make the 24-70/4 IS (assume USM!) at around $1649. At that price, nobody would buy it.

If Canon are aiming at a cheaper lens to be the kit lens for the 6D then I can believe that they've aimed for the $849 price point. Question is, if it is that cheap, what will the IQ be like?

How come is it that when Nikon announces a new lens it's available within weeks, when Canon's availability is within years ?

Sounds like we know we're behind the competition, but if you are patient for 2 more years, you'll actually see some novelty.... so please don't switch to Nikon immediately.

Amen.

Spot on.

You're basing this on what? The 24mm f/2.8 IS and the 28mm f/2.8 IS are replacements for existing (and very old) non-IS f/2.8 primes, not for the fast wide primes (i.e. the 24mm f/1.4L or the 28mm f/1.8 USM -which are both still current).
