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.

as the rumor mill was working hard these past months: a WA? 12-24, 14-24?

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.

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 M | 5D III | 1D X
EF 24 1.4L II | 50 1.2L | 85 1.2L II | 180 3.5L Macro | 300 2.8L IS II 16-35 2.8L II | 24-70 2.8L II | 70-200 2.8L IS II
TS-E 24 3.5L II :: Extender 1.4x III | 2x III :: EF-M 22 2 | 18-55mm 3.5-5.6 IS

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