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?
