I'd buy one If it were true, but not for 899$.

Going to happen.

But if the prior IS non-Ls are any indication, Canon will give up maximum aperture to get IS.  This may end up being an F/1.8 IS or F/2 IS.  The idea being 3-4 stops of IS is worth losing one stop of speed, and I'd presume that IS with an ultra large aperture design would be large and heavy, something the non-Ls are not known for.

Looks like someone just used the stock photo of the Canon 24mm IS or the 28mm IS stretched it out and added 50mm to the front of the lens...the 50 on the lens doesn't look quite the same style/size of the other 2 IS lenses...so I think that this is just a hoax...

Agreed... obviously a fake.

Plus wasn't there a f/2 IS patent floating around for the 50mm earlier...or was it a rumor posting....can't remember. Given their last two entries, f/2 sounds more in line probably for ~$800 initial pricing.

IS on a 50 f/1.4? Not a must have for me. But for videoshooters using a DSLR it might make sense.

I too think it is a fake picture. But I am not sure since I am no expert.
I do love to see an updated Canon 50mm version (presumable it is f/1.4) and love to see the comparison with the Sigma 50mm f/1.4

Otherwise, it is not so unlikely. Since we've seen the announcement of the 28 f/2.8 IS...
What is the f/stop-equivalent to a 50 f/1.4 IS? would equal to a 1.0 ? Don't know how to ask that correctly in english...

Definitely fake.  Compared to the new 24, 28 and 35mm IS lenses, the font for "50mm" on the front of the barrel is wrong.  They probably just 'shopped the 35mm f/2 IS, as the distance scale comes directly from it.

A pretty lazy attempt- just compressed the 35mm pic horizontally (henced the compressed font on 50mm) and changed the 35 to 50.

Yeah, even the surface bumps match.

Of course it's fake... it was on Facebook. :) Now if it appeared on canon rumors, I'd take a second look maybe. This is gotta be a CR0.
