Any words on 70-200 f/2.8 L II (non IS version)?

(1/2) > >>

myone:
As we all know, the EF 70-200 f2.8 IS II has been out for a while now. Any words if its sibling 70-200 2.8 L II is coming out any time soon? The lens was released roughly about 17 years ago (since 1995) and it is still a good lens.

I am thinking to get a 2.8 non IS version and afraid a new one is on the list being released soon. I don't need it right away, so I can wait.

Heard anything, anyone? Thanks

At this range and at f2.8, having "IS" is  a huge PLUS for me.

dhofmann:
I wouldn't be surprised if they stop making non-IS telephoto lenses.

Anyway, a 70-200mm f/2.8L II USM would probably cost only about $400 less than the IS II.

iaind:
Original 70-200 2.8  rumoured to be out of production. A replacement would probably cost at least double looking at current launch prices.

If you need 2.8 go for it  or save for the Is II version.   Non IS was sharper than MkI IS

Mt Spokane Photography:
a Mark II won't happen.  Grab the original before they are all gone.
