EF 24-70 f/4L IS & EF 35 f/2 IS
« on: November 05, 2012, 05:26:56 AM »

New Lenses

As suspected the new Canon EF 24-70 f/4L IS will be announced. This lens should appears as a kit lens with the upcoming EOS 6D. The other lens isn’t a new 50mm at this time, it’s actually going to be a new EF 35 f/2 IS. Pricing will also be higher than the previously unconfirmed suggestions.

Both lenses seem interesting and practical.

With modern cameras I THINK I f4 with IS will be more practical and have more keepers than 2.8 non IS version.

Thanks CR guy for the info!
What does 'Hybrid IS' mean? How many stops does it translate to and how is it different than regular IS?
THX!

PS - Am happy with my 24-105 and sure sure if 24-70 lens will entice me. Waiting to see how it will be better than the workhorse 24-105.

Hybrid Image Stabilizer (IS), the world's first* optical image stabilization technology that compensates for both angle camera shake and shift camera shake.

What the point of having a 24-70 4L IS AND 24-105 4L IS in the line-up? Isn't it a no-brainer to just get the 105?

Correct me if i'm wrong but what's the point of IS in such short focal lengths?

With the release of 24-70 f/4L IS it will be a tough choice for some to decide with the 2.8 non IS version, what do you think?

The 24-70mm f/4L IS baffles me a bit to be honest. I would have thought an updated 24-105mm f/4L IS with improved optics would be more enticing (not that it's optically poor by any stretch as it is now).

I don't know, just doesn't seem to fill any void in the current line up to me.

I look forward to seeing some MTF charts anyway.

My bet is the 24-70 will be significantly better optically.  Probably sharper and better colors

Ye I really dont see the point of the 24-70 F4 IS unless it offers much better quality than the 24-105 F4 IS, If it offers similar quality then why loose the extra 35mm of reach. The new IS wouldn't sway me toward it either. Odd decision by Canon again and bet its a small fortune at least £1100.

At this point it seems no brainer but the hybrid IS seems interesting and also lets see how the IQ is.

We must have faith in Canon. They must have reasons to release this lens.

At last - the 35mm f/2 I was waiting for, specifically with USM & improved aperture. If the price is right, I'm buying one.

It does look very small tho... small and lightweight? Discontinuation of the 24-105mm?
