Announcement on January 8, 2013? New Lenses [CR1]
« on: December 23, 2012, 08:42:14 AM »

New lenses soon?

I have received my first announcement date of 2013. It’s apparently going to be January 8, 2013.


What is coming that day?

I am told 2 new L lenses. The EF 35 f/1.4L II and EF 14-24 f/2.8L will be announced. Both lenses would be available by the end of March 2013. The EF 35 f/1.4L II is a complete redesign and has 2 UD elements.


This is a [CR1] for now as I try and get confirmation of the announcement date and the lenses that are coming.

I hope so - a savings account would be opened just after the reviews of the EF 14-24mm f/2.8 would be released.

I think I,ll start with 17-40 for $699 deal at bh and also open a separate savings account for this one.  I bet it will be almost 4x as expensive as the 17-40!
5d3 --- 60d --- 50mm-f1.8 --- 18-135mm --- 60mm macro --- 70-300is --- 100-400l --- 24-105l --- 17-40l --- 430ex ii

The 35 L II, I am so seriously excited about that lens, seems the wait has been forever!

The savings account have always been there for it, lol. JUST yesterday me and my son wnet out in a crazy blizzard, we have those pretty much everyday now, the snow travels so fast it actually sticks to the windows. And I had no choice but to use the 24 (weathersealing) as the 50 was too narrow, the 35 would have been perfect... And, no, I coudn't have used a 24-70 as it was to thick snow and too poor light, I was at f1,6 @ 1/500s (freeze action, no pun intended) at iso 8000

Our national holiday is 17th of May, if it's here by then I'll be happy camper. ;D

Can't wait for these, the 14-24 I hope will be amazing.   :D

I'm suprised to hear the 35mm 1.4 ii, I though because the new 35mm f2 is was not a sharp as the origional 35mm 1.4, they wouldn't replace it, but I guess with Nikon and Sigma beating Canon in that Place.

I'll be looking forward to the 14-24 pricetag...Don't wanna crash the party here, but as a "tripod-lens" for nightphotography the 12-24 sigma could be fine anyway. The 14-24 from Canon will be constantly two to three stops faster...hmm...As the lens from the dark side is at about 1.8k over here, will the canon premium increase the price over 2 k?

The plan: wait until 35L II is announced at a very high price, sell 35L for much less than that, but still at least what I paid for it new, then buy 35L II.  :)

I don't think the old 35L will sell for more than it sells now used (max. 1100 USD).

CR1?  Could this be a marketing ploy to stem the tide of folks jumping ship for the new Siggy? If so, it didn't work for me. B&H via UPS will be delivering mine tommorrow :)

Did you price the 24-70 MkI before the MkII vs. now?  $900-1100 a few months ago, $1400 today. When the MkII came out, retailers immediately raised prices on remaining MkI stock to full MSRP (well above street price), and used prices followed suit.  Same with the 70-200/2.8 IS, and it was about 2 years (i.e. beginning of this year) that used MkI prices returned to their pre-MkII levels.  So I think it's quite probable the same will happen with the 35L...

So what you're saying is that I can buy a 35/1.4 MkI now and just wait for the 35/1.4 MkII to come out, then sell the 35/1.4 MkI at a nice profit?

God what a bunch of suckers Canon shooters are! :D

Love it!

My question is whether the 14-24 will have any impact on the resale of the 16-35II. I'd gladly sell my 16-35, and inject about 3K of my own cash for the 14-24 and 35II.
5DIII 8-200mm minus 35mm in there.

I sold my 2 year old 24-70 Mk 1 for $10 less than what I paid for it last month. I am beyond excited for a 14-24, I have had a 17-40 and found the corners far too soft and cannot bring myself to get a 16-35 which is not THAT much better for the cost difference and who needs a super fast landscape lens? I need Zeiss 21 quality in a zoom.
