14-24L & 24-70L II Talked About Again
« on: July 12, 2011, 01:38:02 PM »
I’ve been receiving a lot of stuff recently, most of which I’m figured to be fakes. Like the
5D Mark III commercial Small | Large
. I’ve also received a lot of camera specs based on the patent from a few days ago.

However, a decent source that’s correct about 50% of the time sent me information about upcoming lenses from Canon.

I’m told an EF 14-24 f/2.8L and EF 24-70 f/2.8L II will be announced at the same time. Whether that’s with a new 1Ds or 5D Mark III was unknown. However, Q4, 2011 or Q1, 2012 was the timetable.

CR’s Take Patents for both optical formulas exist, so it’s highly possible. I have a hard time seeing Canon adding to the L lineup until the 8-15 starts shipping.

EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4X We can expect this lens to become an official product with an announcement this fall. Availability in late Q1 2012 I’m told.

EF 24-70 f/2.8L for $1399 @ B&H

I'd like to see IS & non-IS versions of both.  I'd probably go for the non-IS version for the 14-24, but I could see more video orientated people going for the IS version if it existed.  For the 24-70, I'd want the IS version for sure though.

Whats the point of two version, just use of IS on/off will do the job. If cost is the reason, then current version is fine. I don't see point of two version of 24-70 II IS

Canon desperately needs a 14-24mm f2.8 in my opinion. If this comes true I'll be all over that lens.

Covering 14mm to 200mm with 3 lenses at f2.8 it's a great thing and it is a useful range for cropped and FF bodies.

There is no reason other than no one has yet.
8-15, 14-24, 24-70, 70-200, 200-400, where's the 400-800? :)

If I can reasonably hand hold it, I'd buy a 400-800 :P that's the only reason stopping me from looking seriously at the Sigma 200-500 f/2.8 and strapping an extender on it. The 200-400 extender will be close enough in practice though.

Like the <a href=\"http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-7_7W8E-bi8&feature=player_embedded\">5D Mark III commercial</a>.

C'mon, it's a fake. Even author said in comments, that it was homework for school :)

What's the point of two 70-200/4 & two 70-200/2.8 then?

Adding IS isn't all positives.  It adds significant size, weight, complexity, and the biggest issue for most; cost. Best case scenario, IS will only add $500-600 to the cost.  That's still a fairly significant sum.  I'm sure many people that don't want or need IS would opt for the non-IS version.

Right, so the point was that if someone doesn't want the IS version, they can buy the non-IS version which already exists.  I just don't understand why someone is getting on this forum and asking for a EF 24-70mm f/2.8 non-IS.  JUST GO BUY IT.  IT'S FOR SALE NOW.

I've done that, five of them, actually, before I gave up trying to find a good one.  Many others have seen similar issues.

Even when a excellent copy if found, it inherently has a problem with curvature of field that is quite noticible for a expensive lens.

I'm no longer even hoping for a new version, I now use primes.

Personally I find it hard for Canon to release a non is and is version of the same lens when Canon is having productivity issues in its factory cranking out its lens lineup.

In any case any rumor on the 14-24 lens gives me hope and excitement once again!

Hopefully they'll make the lens cap similar to its 17mm tilt shift lens where its got grooves to twist and lock the cap on. The nikon version's 14-24 only fault is its flimsy and cheap lens cap that tends to always come off in your bag and create cosmetic marks around the barrel over time and use.
