New EF-S Ultrawide Coming? [CR1]
« on: May 05, 2014, 04:10:01 PM »

We’ve been told from a couple of different places that a new ultra-wide angle lens for APS-C is coming this year. It would be a replacement to the very good EF-S 10-22 f/3.5-4.5. I wasn’t told exactly what the new lens would be.


If I had to speculate, I think it would be a constant aperture f/4 lens with IS. If the lens was released for the EOS 7D replacement, perhaps we would also see a build quality bump with something like weather sealing. Just because they’ve never done it for EF-S, doesn’t mean they couldn’t start now.


More to come…

Utterly ridiculous. Bring on the 7d II, we've got enough glass.
Or rather bring on a killer eos-m 3 and we will just use the really good and compact cheapo ef-m 11-22 which has IS already, although canon was so stupid to not make it constant aperture f/4.0.

Just do it, Canon. So sick and tired of rumors and marketing-differentiated, crippled products. Up yours, canon!

Interesting... it wouldn't be the first EF-S lens that I'd want done, but it would give a sort of symmetry between the EF-S and EF-M lines.

I have to agree with AvTvM, It all talk an no significant products. Blah, Blah Blah! And people have the nerve to criticize Apple! Canon is much worse on bringing new products to market.

No just because the existing one is a very good lens.

fast STM lenses.

10-22 F4 IS, 17-55 F2.8 IS, both with STM.

with 70D, it makes a huge sense to have STM in these new lenses.

Geez people. Chill. It's a CR1 rumor. Some people will use any excuse to rail against Canon.

If you are not interested in this lens, that's fine. I'm not interested either. But why get upset about it. It doesn't affect you one bit.

Oh wait, it does...If Canon releases any lens that adds to its bottom line, it increases the resources available to invest in other products – products that you might be interested in.
