Lots of New Lenses Coming in 2014 [CR2]
« on: November 10, 2013, 12:11:43 PM »

Lots of manufacturing delays

We’re told that Canon will be releasing a “flurry of new lenses in 2014″. There have been manufacturing delays as well as economic issues that have curtailed announcements of new higher end glass. There are “as many as 8 lenses” slated for release sometime in 2014.


We will see new lenses, as well as replacements to older lenses. What gets announced and when is unknown, as some lenses have been “delayed for more than a year”.


It’s vague, but at least it’s something. 2013 has been a very quiet year for Canon.

I suspect that the economic issues will determine exactly what gets released.  The low end ones alwalys sell, and the high end ones sell consistently as well.  Its the middle of the road stuff that is Canons bread and butter that gets hit by the poor economy.

OK, I might have to update my lenses but still allow me to ... order:

a 400mm 5.6L IS with at least the same quality and AF speed
a 16-35mm 2.8L III (Please better corners and less coma)
a super quality 100-400 4.5-5.6L IS II
a 14-24 f/2.8L for people who need this and have the absurd idea that a 16-35 2.8 is not necessary
a 35mm 1.4L II (OK I will have to upgrade mine but I will accept one with NO coma)
a 135mm f/2L IS (same as before I will have to upgrade mine but IS in 135mm is so useful... )
a 600mm f/5.6 DO with L lens quality (I don't say that I will be able to afford it though and since it will be a 600mm/4L IS II ... almost killer it will most probably won't happer)

So I am ...  fine with 7 lenses! See I left one more for spare ...  ;D  ;D  ;D

On second thought:  24-105 f/4L IS II that will improve a very nice otherwise lens (so at to make it a 24-70 2.8 II killer - OK it won't happen most probably)

fascinating timing.   Tamron announces a 150-600  moderately priced but "high quality" lens on Thurs, 3 days later canon leaks that it has many new lenses coming.

Nothing like competition to get them moving.   As far as the 100-400L, they've milked the current one for 15 years and have gotten away with it because the competition, eg Sigma, Tamron have uncut in price but haven't made a serious move in quality.  Nikon has already redone the 80-400 w/big improvements.  So here's hope canon can update this lens and keep it to a price that prosumers can afford...eg, under 2k

20 2.8 IS
50 1.4 IS
85 1.8 IS
200 2.8 IS ... 135 f/2L IS, compatible with teleconverters
100-400 4-5.6L IS
24-70 2.8 IS

and please don't gouge too much at release time.

A 1000F8 would be an interesting beast....

I can not see an updated 70-200F4is... The current one is as sharp as the F2.8 version...
The best camera is the one in your hands

....
a super quality 100-400 4.5-5.6L IS II
....


+1 on these.  But, anyone want to add the "affordability" criteria?  Can only hope.
