Canon EF 11-24 f/2.8L Coming [CR1]
« on: August 07, 2014, 03:08:41 PM »

We’ve been told that a Canon EF 11-24 f/2.8L lens will be coming, although we weren’t told when. Pricing for the new lens will be around $2800 USD.


The same source says to expect price drops on select Canon L lenses around September 1, 2014.


More to come…

If it is as sharp as their recent releases and has IS then I suppose I could sell a kidney...

"11" to 24mm???  I find that hard to believe...but it is supposed to be the "Year of the Lens"!!!
Cool....I just sold my 16-35mm f/2.8L II to finance (even steven) the new 16-35mm f/4L IS ..which is FANTASTIC.
Looks like I just missed the rebate drop so I got top dollar for my f.2.8L zoom!!!   ;D ;D ;D
...and if there is any truth to this new UWA zoom lens rumor...the price is just not a place I am willing to go for an
UWA..although I bet the UWA if real, will REALLY finally KICK A$$!!!
I just do not see the lens having an 11mm focal length at the low end???????
I see that the rumor is only rated at CR1
According to the rumor rating page on this site:
CR1 – The source is probably a 4 legged animal of some kind.
I did not write that!!! CR did...LOL!
...but I guess we should take this with a grain of salt (or perhaps snausage).

The same source says to expect price drops on select Canon L lenses around September 1, 2014.

The lens rebates end at the end of August, so MAP enforcement will also end, and prices will return to the typical pre-rebate levels, which were generally lower than the current after-rebate prices.  So while the source may be accurate on this, it's sort of like predicting that the sun will rise in the east...   ;)

Sorry, but 2800$ are 2800€+ in Germany.
11-24mm 2.8L... What is this lens made of?
I´m sorry, but Canon is getting a little bit to expensive for me.

I think a 11-24 would not be an UWA but a HFTIW (holy .... this is wide)

or I guess for marketing - SUWA (Super ultra wide)?

I can totally see that being the final sentence in the meeting room the lead to the decision to build this lens.  8)  ;D

I wonder why it goes to f2.8 though.
There should be a lot in focus for these focal lengths, so is it just to get extra light?
I have the feeling this would be a good choice for landscape photographers, but what do they want with f2.8?
Wouldn't they rather have IS and f4 to enable better hand held shooting?
Or just f4 without IS to make the lens lighter?
