I believe that I have read discussions (though not a rumor) that the 45 and 90 TS would be replaced.  Or is this wishful thinking on my part?

It seems to me that 2010 was a really good year for rumours, maybe the year that Bigfoot was rumoured to be hiding out somewhere????

Newbie here.
Was I the only one who bit on this joke?

Now, if you must know, I'm a lefty!
And I ordered my first digital SLR on Saturday from the Canon eStore.
Logged on this morning and saw the joke.

First thought it would be a 7D Professional, like the EF lenses with the "L" in their designation.

Wondered for a moment if I could cancel my existing order, and get a 7DL instead.

I'm not really sure that a pair of oddball, low volume, niche architectural pro lenses would constitute a "big" announcement. Maybe these two, a 35IIL, 200LIS macro and a 100-400IIL would though!

I think (hope) we will see the 100-400 IS replacement, the 17-40 L replacement, the 14-24 2.8 L, the 24-70 2.8 IS lens, the 50 mm 1.4 replacement and the Tilt-Shift replacements.

Me too. The long rumored 100-400 replacement is a bit of a mythical unicorn....along with a 35mm f1.4 L replacement.
Personally, I'm not too fussed with a 24-70 L IS...I know some are looking forwards to it. But the mkII non IS is very very good. A 14-24L would be nice, a 12-24L would be better and not preclude the need for a 17-40 or 16-35.

I read on a website that the TS-E 90mm would be replaced by a TS-E 135mm but at the time it seemed like they were just pulling that FL out of their 4$$. Still no update announcement. A TS-E 90mm replacement (L-series) is the lens I most desire. The current 90mm loses IQ when shifting wide open. Unfortunately TS-E seems to be low on Canon's priorities.

TS-E: 45mm f/2.8 L-II,  EF: 40mm f/0.8,  100mm f/1.4,  35-85mm f/1.8, 
EF with 1.4xInt: 100-300mm f/4 ,  500mm f/5.6 L

I see the same thing with my TS-e 17L and TS-e 45mm. I guess it's a fact of such a large swing / shift movement. I've seen simular with the TS-e24IIL, although less pronounced. I have to confess, I've not tried the TS-e 90...it's not a lens I have a need for yet. I suspect that Canon are in no particular hurry to replace the 45 and 90, they are still selling as well as a TS-e is to be expected . A new version with have a inevitable double price hike...which will most probably kill the new sales. It's a lot of cash for a marginal increase in optical quality and the newer movement chassis. One would have a strong "need" to justify that kind of cost!

A lot of interests in EF 35 f/1.4L II.

Do you ever use the Sigma 12-24?  It's supposed to be decent.

I had the lens for a while and really liked it.  The 12mm rectilinear view is unlike anything you've ever used - it's nearly 1/3 wider than a 14mm lens!  I sold it with half of my other lenses when I got the 300mm f/2.8 IS II, but do miss it sometimes.  It wasn't super sharp, was rather distorted, and had bad CA in the corners, but if you kept it at f/11 and 12mm, it was pretty decent.  Besides, you could hand hold it at 1/15s!  I'd LOVE it if Canon released a 12-24L :)  Here are some shots at 12mm to give you an idea of what that'd be like:









EOS 1D X, 5DIII, M + EF 24 f/1.4II, 50 f/1.2, 85 f/1.2II, 300 f/2.8 IS II || 16-35 f/4 IS, 24-70 f/2.8II, 70-200 f/2.8II || TS-E 17 f/4, 24 f/3.5II || M 22 f/2, M 11-22 f/4-5.6 IS | 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS || 1.4x III, 2x III
I only shoot at ISO 100 with perfect technique - should I get a Nikon?

It's interesting to see that the rumored lenses in 2010 remain as is in 2014!

The rumors need to start materialising as lenses. The newer cameras (before we even get to 45 or 85MP as been rumored here) such as the 6d show up the problems of the EF-17-40mm f4L,  EF24-105mm f4L both of which have pronouced chromatic abberations at 17mm and 24mm respectively. As sensors improve the faults of lenses masked at 8, 10, 12 or 18MP now show up and this undermines the system ability to produce great results. Sigma have shown improvement are possible (so has Zeiss at a price) and still remain competitive to Canon pricing.
