85mm 1.2 IS would be nice.
But it's a niche market, so keeping dreaming about ;)

The patent for the 135mm says f/2.8 not f/2
I hope that's not the lens they actually release, although it would save me a ton of money.  Very sad indeed if it turns out to be a f/2.8 lens :'(

There's no assurance this patent will result in a lens sold on the shelves, but if 10 years of digital photography didn't kill the 135mm f/2.8 w/ softfocus, it must sell well enough to justify it's continue production, and even upgrade.

I like the 100f2IS the most out of the bunch, but if the 135f2.8IS were extremely sharp wide open, it would be hard not to consider it.

But yeah, taking f2 away kind of kills the appeal. I assume most people are looking for a low light action lens or long portrait lens in the 135f2, IS does not replace a stop worth of aperture in either case.
The 35f2.8IS makes sense, this, not so much.
-100% RAW-

Let me see... Image height Y = 21.635mm, not enough to cover FF 24mm?

That's probably radius of the image circle.

Yes, the image height quoted in patents is the radius of the imaging circle.

What do you mean by "niche market"?

Are you saying that you don't know how to use a prime lens such as this for anything other than portraits?

The 85/2 IS is sorely needed.

A 135/2 L IS would be most welcome too.

Okay, so now it is starting to get interesting...  :)

Wait, let me guess.

Release prices:  $999, $1,099 and $1,499.
I fear, you will have to add up another 100 to 200 $.  :(
Unless Canon has learned the lesson from the latest release of the non L lenses with IS.

The patent for the 135mm says f/2.8 not f/2
That is really disappointing, if this is the patent coming to release.  :'(

I think I'll grab the 135 without IS once the new one is out...
Exactly my thought, if this is coming true.

But a optically really good 85 f1.8 would be one on my wish list as I am not so happy with the actual lens.
A 100 f2.0 is also very nice but too close to the former and i prefer the 85 mm reach.

Now let's wait (further on) and see and save up some money...  :)

I don't see the point of a 135 f/2.8.
At the time of superlative sharp f/2.8 zoom lenses (24-70 II and 70-200 II), why would you buy a 135 that doesn't add anything "big" to your pics ? Maybe a tiny little bit sharpening ? Is it really worth it…? For me, it definitely ain't.

Maybe a quite long prime lens for the 16-35 ; 24-70 owners.
But i feel it would be a real "downgrade" if it actually is 2.8. Why get less if you pay more ? The 135 f/2 is a beloved glass and is already super compact.

35 1.4 for both ; ultra-wide & teles for the Canon

135mm 2.8L IS is a very nice lens that will really help me save money. I am simply NOT INTERESTED!  ;D

Ok, I'll try this again.
I think this is a FAKE post.
Just look at the block diagrams before you get too excited!

http://egami.blog.so-net.ne.jp/2014-01-22


Looking at the linked website, I am very suspicious: all the block diagrams seem essentially the same, with different elements made smaller or bigger and shifted a bit. The 85 1.8, 100 2 and 135 2 don't look a bit like each other.
Now I am not very knowledgeable about block diagrams, maybe someone can give an expert opinion?
Someone's idea of a joke?

As someone mentioned before, the 135 is *NOT* f/2 and is *NOT* a replacement for the 135L.

The 135 shown here is f/2.8, and is a replacement for the now discontinued 135mm f/2.8 Soft Focus.

The 135L will have its own replacement that is f/2 (and hopefully IS, too, given the focal length).
