Beyond what I heard a few weeks ago, there has been ZERO information about lenses come my way.

Dont be!  First you got the lens at a good price while the new verison will likely cost more.  Second, while it may be announced this week, it may not be available for a few months.  At least you can strt shooting with your 35!  If you still want the new model you will be able to sell yours at minimal loss since you got a good price (L lenses keep their value).

See for myself I had decided to wait for the new model, but I have no clue when I will be able to shoot with a 35 1.4L, so not sure my move was good either!

Either way just start shooting with your 35, you will love it (I tried it before and it is an amazing lens in its current format).  Cheers.

If you love it, just have fun with it and don't worry about the mk II.

Also, it will be more expensive than what you payed for yours ;)

I was sad for I had no shoes.  And then I met a man who had no feet.  So I took his damn shoes.  I mean he didn't need them and it was not like he could run after me.

Seriously dude.  Things could be worse.  If announced tomorrow, it will sell at or above retail for 6-18 months and then drop 10-20%.  Look at the 70-200 F2.8 II.   Buy the new one when the price drops, shoot your @ss of with the Mark I in the mean time.

I do think the 35L is due for replacement - every other L-series prime of 100mm and shorter has been updated or newly released since 2006.  But, that was true a year ago as well...and it didn't stop me from buying the current 35mm f/1.4L.  It's a gret lens - get out and have fun with it!

You shouldn't be disappointed. The lens is awesome and I can't imagine it getting much better even if they did replace it. It is canons 2nd best prime IMO. First being the 135mm, but I use the 35mm focal a hell of a lot more.

The 35mm f/1.4L is a marvelous lens.  As long as it brings forth great pictures, we have all the reasons to keep and enjoy it! =)

If there is a new version, it will be a incremental improvement, perhaps new lens coatings. 

Canon has patented some  lenses with resin elements recently, they are plastic elements that go inside the lens where they will not be susceptable to scratching, expect to see more of this type of thing, it reduces cost, and they call them resin to avoid the term plastic.  Its not a bad thing, they can form it in complex shapes that are impossible or very expensive to grind.  Then they raise the price, a win-win situation --- for them, anyway.

So far, as far as I know, they have only been used in the AF unit of DSLR's, not in a EF lens.

Here is a blurb about the manufacturing technology.
