I hope the updated 35, 135m 180 Macro and 400/5.6 be released in 2012.
Visit my Flickr, Facebook & 500px and see my photos. :)

What about a 17-40L II? I want a wide walk around lens with a bit of zoom for my 5D. I am considering buying the 17-40 I, but they just don't seem to sharp and this is a very old lens. When's the refresh coming?

My 17-40 is very sharp on the 5D - what makes you think they aren't??
I borrowed my cousins 17-40 to use on my 5DC for a few weeks and I got very few sharp shots. He is selling his and I really want to buy it, but I just feel like it's not a sharp lens(or maybe just his copy.)
Regardless, anyone have any ideas about the timetable for a 17-40 II announcement? I'm really loving the other "II" lenses that have been released so I'm definitely curious about this lens.
Canon EOS-M, 22mm f2, 11-22mm f4-5.6
Canon 550D, Sigma 50mm f1.4
Nikon D700, Nikon 24-70mm f2.8, Tamron 17-35mm f2.8-4

The 17-40 is at its sharpest between f/8 and f/11 so ideal for landscapes.

lot of people shooting pretty happily with 50 f/1.4s with no problems, and I'm one of them.  definitely shoot plenty with it, and plenty with it in AF mode.  considering it costs just over 3 times as much as the f/1.8, the question is really, is it 3 times better.  between the image+bokeh quality and the build quality and the extra 2/3 stop of light, I'd say definitely yes.

I've never used the 1.8 or 1.4 , but I have read so many articles of photojournalist using the 1.4 in the field - they say that it can take an incredible beating , and shoot amazing images in harsh situations - I only own all L series lenes , but I really considered getting one of these from the stories I have heard !

Amazing stories about the 50 1.4 taking harsh beatings???
?? The 50 1.4 has just about the worst build of any canon lens. The AF is easily damaged or broken.
All I see is stories about how the AF broke yet again, etc.
Every person I know who has had one has had it break and yet I don't know anyone who has ever had any other Canon lens ever break.

Never had a problem with mine :D
I had the AF fail on my 70-200 f/4  :(

How often are these failing? I can see how plastic components like gears do wear out or fail but hasnt Canon been using plastic internal componants in all most everything for ages?

 I hear how bad the 60D plastic body is. If I had the choice I would have paid extra for magnesium but it wasn't a deal breaker.

Just posted this in the other thread:

My local cps/nps shop already has the 200-400 posted on his website, below is the thumbnail.
I don't know if the photo is just a placeholder, also his canon official links goes to the main page of canon switzerland. But I believe the 200-400 is in front of the door.

I own the 35L, 50L and 135L. I'd like faster AF on the 50L. I'd like IS on my 135L so long as it didn't affect IQ. The 35L is perfect. I hope they get a faster AF on the 18 1.2.

They can upgrade anything they want... I just hope they do it soon. The sooner they release, the sooner the price comes down to earth.

I am an amateur photographer and recently got very interested in Bird photography.
Right now I have very constrained gear in a 550D, 70-200 F4L IS.

I do not like the 18MP sensor 550D has as it is too noisy above 800 ISO along with horrible noise in shadows.
Since Canon 7D has the same sensor, I do not want to buy 7D. Waiting for 7D mk II with high hopes is the only thing I can do.

On lens part, I thought of buying a 100-400 L but then decided not to seeing rumors about the new 100-400 floating around.

Is it wise to pony up and save for next 100-400 L ?


Thanks,

darash

I'm planning to buy the 100mm macro L lens. Anyone heard of an upgrade coming this year?

I would be shocked if its up graded within two or three years. It's at present one of Canon's finest lenses.

I'm interested in all the rumored normal lenses:
• 40mm pancake
• 45mm TS-E II
• 50mm 1.2 II
• 60mm Macro
Does anyone have an idea when they'll be available?
