Will Canon be making a 16-35 f/2.8 IS anytime soon?
« on: January 11, 2013, 03:05:48 AM »
Nikon has patented for a 16-35mm f/2.8 VR lens (VR of Nikon is the equivalent of the IS of Canon).
Does Canon plan on making an equivalent of Nikon's recently patented lens?

Well, Nikon may have no intention of releasing a 16-35 VR. A lot of the lens designs that are patented never turn into real products.

There are some rumors of a Canon 14-24mm, but until we get significantly better information, I wouldn't bet on it.
5D mark 2, 5D mark 3, EF 17-40mm f/4L,  EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, EF 135mm f/2L, EF 85mm f/1.8
Film Cameras: Mamiya RB67, RB-50, RB-180-C, RB-90-C, RB-50, Perkeo I folder, Mamiya Six Folder (Pre-WWII model)

This is a rumors site. That does not exclude negative rumors. So I say ... NO!

OK I have no inside information but it the most logical. 16-35mm f/2.8 lenses have the same diameter more or less with 24-70mm f/2.8 L lenses.
And we all know how many 24-70 2.8 L IS  lenses exist  ;D  ;D  ;D

Going by the recent 24-70 f/2.8 L II, I do not think Canon will release an IS version of 16-35 L anytime soon.

It would be nice to have either 14-24 f2.8 IS or 16-35 f2.8 IS.....IS can be really useful for night time landscape.
Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 400L f2.8 IS II

No...he is waiting for that really fast  f/1 on the 14-24mm ....except he would also like an IS  that gives him 10 stops of stabilization. Clearly it easier than using a tripod with the currently available lenses.   :o

Nothing wrong with being into lowkey wide nighttime images. I for one would welcome a handheld UWA zoom from Canon that actually has sharp(er) corners.
Frigging UWA zoom shopping is KILLING me.

Nothing, not even a yet to be conceived super-duper zoom, is going to make everyone perfectly content. They will be nitpicking something else with that.

All things considered, current 16-35L II is a competent UWA.

It would be waste to add IS to this lens I have taken great shots at 1/6 of second hand held non is, better to work on IQ at lower apertures at  f8 it is amazing!

Going on recent form, I'd expect both a f2.8 20mm IS and a f4 14mm IS in consumer formats

How's that for a rumour !   < note the use of the "u" ;-)
