Canon EF 14-24 f/2.8L in Late 2013 [CR2]
« on: December 13, 2012, 07:33:47 PM »
A New Canon Ultrawide Zoom
This lens comes up every now and then as something that will be added to the Canon lineup. A couple of patents that have referenced this optical formula are out there, which tells us it’s something that is on the minds of the R&D team at Canon.

I was told today that the lens is in the pipeline and will be coming in 2013 if there are no more delays with lens production. I was told to expect availability to be in late 2013, but the announcement date was unknown at this time. It makes perfect sense that this sort of lens would be announced with the imminent large megapixel camera that Canon will unveil in 2013.

There were a few lenses that were to be announced in 2012 that will be pushed into 2013. A lot had to do with production delays with the new supertelephotos as well as the EF 24-70 f/2.8L II.

As a point of reference, the Nikon 14-24 2.8, which is regarded by many as the sharpest wide-zoom in the world, is $2000.

The 16-35 definitely covers a wider range of focal lengths, which is useful for certain purposes, but the 14-24 is theoretically better in every aspect except for the focal length in the long-range. Here's the main question: would a photographer get the 14-24 for the wider focal length and better performance, or would a photographer get the 16-35 for the versatility in focal length? I'd definitely pick the 14-24. Any day. It just offers so much more!

I don't see the photojournalist crowd going 14-24. Everybody else (who can afford it), hell yes!

When I saw this on CR, I thought if this doesn't get a bunch of ecstatic posts, then the forum members are just plain weird. Thank god I wasn't disappointed.
50 1.4 IS and now 14-24 2.8- Wow! That's all I can said. All in the year I hope to go FF. And right after I bought the 70-200mm II. Sweet!!!
Never sarcastic, just misinterpreted sometimes.

Finally

Edit: Remember there was some mention of patent exchange between Nikon and Canon this year. Perhaps Canon gave them the formula for 70-200 f/4 while they provided Canon something for 14-24 f/2.8. :) This is the last lens needed to complete the f/2.8 zoom trinity.

Some photojournalist will certainly get one of these.  Sometimes you need to view everything that's happening but you still want to be as close as possible to your subjects.  I'm not saying the 16-35 can't do this.  All I'm saying is that you can capture more with 14-24.

Typical of canon to feed rumors and leak announcements a year in advance, and control discontent among the brand loyalists, announce as late as they can in the next year, and deliver the actual product even later still like in 2014. Seen this play before. *yawn*

Either the above or get the product out of the door asap with poor factory QC like some companies. Pick your poison.

BTW, the 14-24 f/2.8L patent was confirmed in 2009, filed in 2007 within Japan and 2008 within USA. See this. So, if what you say is true, then Canon must have been fueling rumors and anticipation several years prior to actual product release. :D
