More Wide Angle Lens Speculation [CR1]
« on: May 06, 2014, 09:20:23 AM »

We’re told that there are two wide angle zoom lenses coming from Canon. One we’re told would be an 11-24 f/4, though it wasn’t mentioned whether or not this would be a full frame or APS-C only lens. Though the source did say the lens would be expensive, which leads me to believe it would be full frame compatible. The same source also says a new 16-35 f/4 wide angle with IS is also on tap and would be quite pricey. However, if they perform in the corners, people will pay nearly anything for a great wide angle Canon offering. I do find it a  bit odd that neither of the mentioned lenses are f/2.8, but perhaps that’s coming down the road.


There was another mention of a new Canon 100-400 being priced in the $3000 range also coming.


This info is not coming from known sources, so treat it accordingly. More to come…

The high price bit was tacked on to lend legitimacy to this rumor of the unicorn lens.  :P
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

11-24?  Well there was a rumour of "the widest ever full frame lens" a few months ago. 11mm is wider than Sigma's 12mm, so possibly real, but at fixed f4, out of my price range.  I'll stick with my 12-24 Sigma and tweak the pictures in Lightroom.


Canon 1D, 5D, 5DIII, 70D, 60D, SX150-IR/UV, 50 f1.8, 70-200 f2.8 IS II, 70-300 f4-5.6 IS USM,

Between the EF-S 10-24mm f/3.5-5.6 and the Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6, I don't see where an EF-S 11-24mm f/4 would come in. Maybe if it had IS, STM, or amazing IQ.

An EF 11-24mm f/4, on the other hand, I would buy.

If "quite pricey" is more than ~$1000 then it is too expensive. $1000 is the cost of a 17-40/f4 plus add a bit for IS. If it is getting towards $1300 or more then Canon can shove it where the Sun don't shine.

Or people will wait for Sigma to deliver :)

I believe Canon should introduce a 16-35 f/2.8L III, a 16-35 f/4L IS and a 14-24 f/2.8L. Then we would be OK as far as UWA FF zooms are concerned (before asking for an IS version of 16-35 2.8L with IS that is)  ;D ;D ;D

Is that too much to ask ?  8)  8)

P.S OK feel free to add other variations, price ranges, APS-C UWA zoom ranges, etc... After all it is a rumor site  :)

yes!


And what would be the speculated prices for:
- 16-35 f/2.8 MKIII = ?
- 16-35 f/4 IS = ?
- 14-24 f/2.8 = ?


Who give up the 16-35 f/2.8 MKII for a 16-35 f/4 IS?
 
5DIII w/grip  |  6D  |  16-35L IS  |  24-105L  |  70-300L  |  24-70VC  |  70-200 f/2.8L IS II  |  35 f/2 IS  |  50A  |  135L

Ultra wide-angle zoom lens, is the only type of lens that I did not like constant aperture. :o After all, I use my 10-20mm in 10mm only, 99% of the time. ::)

- 16-35 f/2.8 MKIII = 2300
- 16-35 f/4 IS         = 1500
- 14-24 f/2.8          = 2300

Prices randomly speculated of course. I based them somehow on 24-70 2.8 II to 24-70 4L IS price comparisons and I wanted to create confusion between the  16-35 f/2.8 MKIII and 14-24 f/2.8  models  ;D ;D ;D

P.S I do not say I would like these prices, it is just a speculation which is different...
