It's April 1st in the Year Of The Lens. Can't decide which one to buy! Too many new ones!

Just remember.... it's the year of the LENS, not the year of the LENSES...

Bumping this one back up, now that the Unicorn II(TM) is on Amazon.   Did Canon overstate it, or are people happy with the lens additions?

Those who were looking for the lens will be happy those who were looking for another lens that they felt should have been produced will not. :o

We’ve had a few confirmations that 2014 will be the “year of the lens” for Canon. While Nikon and Sony go into new markets such as full frame mirrorless and retro designs, Canon will apparently stay the course and concentrate on DSLRs and lenses for the EOS lineup.

What should we expect?

Firstly, a new worlds widest full frame zoom lens (nor sure what this could be) (11-24 f/4 apparently soon), a wide angle zoom with IS (17-50 f/4L IS?) (16-35 f/4 IS), a new fast wide angle successor with “new technology” (35 f/1.4?) (where are you, what are you?? ). We can also expect two new tilt-shift lenses (??) , a telephoto zoom successor (100-400?) (Yes) as well as “budget high quality lenses”(400 DO - budget?, plus ??, 24 EF-S pancake, 10-18 EF-S, 24-105 STM).

I’m starting to believe the hype, as the info is coming from known and new sources, and they all seem to be saying the same thing.

More to come.

Reasonable hit rate. Have I missed any?

24-105 STM. That could be the budget high quality lenses togehter with the EF-S 10-18, aren't they?
But quite good hit rate.

All lenses released so far in 2014:

- 16-35/4
- 10-18/4.5-5.6
- 55-200/4.5-6.3
- 400/4
- 24-105/3.5-5.6
- 24/2.8
- 100-400/4.5-5.6

What will most likely come this year is the 11-24/4.
That makes a total of 8 lenses (the 2 Cinema lenses not included)...
Now who says CR is not reliable? ;) Didn't they mention 8 new lenses for 2014? :)

And if you can't call that a year of the lens, I don't know what a year of the lens is for you...
