There have been quite a few rumours of late. The 800 ii, new wide angles, new versions of existing prime lenses and that is just the lenses.

What lens were you hoping for?
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

Canon has over 70 lenses available.  How many more do you need?   :P

Seriously, it's past time for a 35L II.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

I'd like to see one which would be able to make Brenizer effect in one shot. Something with f/0.04 let say. ;)

Just kidding

what i would like to know is what we can expect in 2014.
a CR2 or better CR3 would not be bad. ;)

when you ask me what lenses i want:

a very sharp 12-24mm f2.8.

an updated and really sharp 17-40mm f4

a new EF 100-400mm, without push design.
or even better a EF 200-600mm f5.0-f6.0 for ~2200 euro. :)

i know canon wants f5.6 for AF on most cameras. but hey it works for others so... :)
or make it 200-550mm f5-5.6 .. would make me happy too.
at least when it has canons AF, IS and is really sharp at the long end.

Seems like a lot of folks are interested in the extreme lenses in the long range.

Me, I would like to see a 24-105 ver II.  I would also like to see a 16-35 III.

Call me crazy but I thought the overpriced 24 and 35mm EF primes that came out with IS were a waste of time.

The 24-70 ver II that came out was obviously a hit but also way overpriced.

For most mid-range enthusiasts, the 24-105 has been a great lens.  It is likely most folks 1st L lens with good reason.  Why doesn't Canon improve that lens after all this time?  Seems like it would sell well for them.
Yes, but what would  surapon  say ??  :D

the 24mm IS has come to a reasonable price here.
from around ~800 euro to 450 euro.

but yes the introduction price was too high.

I'd like to have 14-24 2.8 too, which would be a great combo with 24-70 and 70-200.

yes and then imagine a EF 200-600mm.  ;)

would that not make a great line of zooms.

so 2014... "the year of the lens".

and the no. 1 canon rumor website has no clue at all what´s coming?

NSA secrets are leaked but canon is tight as an oyster?

80% of the articles on this website are deals lately.
sure the website has to make money but the lack of true rumors is a bit disappointing.

You may want to temper your expectations about the site, kiddo.

1. CR, as I understand it, is a passive reporting site. When they are told something from a reasonable source, you as a reader have a place where you can find out about it. I don't seem them doing "investigative journalism," spending days and nights on the phones cultivating deep sources, poring over arcane documents and shipping information, etc. I believe they also walk a fine line -- Canon is not averse to legal actions. I may be wrong, but I think there have already been skirmishes here.

2. As I've often said, the state of journalism in the photography world is abominable. The information about what's coming is not that hard to get -- there are too many suppliers and shippers involved to be otherwise. A good journalist could get indicative information that could be confidently reported. Hell, Apple can't keep secrets. There's also the point of playing the game a certain way. Many manufacturers use controlled leaks, and that does not appear to be common in the photography equipment world.

Finally, as for NSA "secrets" getting out, you may have noticed the people who got the info out are now tightly locked up in limbo situations. I wouldn't expect CR to go out on that kind of a limb.

So, in between the waves of really juicy rumors, we bide our time here in forum chattering mostly about silly things.

There are plenty of lenses in the Canon line-up whose designs are much older than the 24-105's. I'm sure that a lot more than design age figures into which models Canon updates or replaces (market size, margin opportunity, revenue & profit forecasts, etc.)

I'd like a 150-450mm f/4-5/6L IS. (Or at least 200-400.)
