Yeah! New Lenses. Anybody else feeling like Canon hasn't been providing much to the consumer market lately? Competition is good.
I have. My impression was that there's more money in cheaper lenses, inclusive of non-L primes, yet Canon seems to upgrade only L primes.
As example, I wouldn't buy the 24mm f/2.8 - it's one stop faster than the 24-105mm f/4 L, and it's optical quality isn't exactly stellar. Bring out a 24mm f/2 USM with good IQ, and I might very well buy it.
E.g. there are several 50mm lenses in Amazon top sellers in lenses, the 85mm f/1.8 is the 36thm the 100mm f/2.8 non-L the 41st, the 50mm f/2.5 compact macro the 50th, the EF-S 60mm f/2.8 macro is 70th, the EF 28mm f/1.8 is 90th, etc.
A USM version of Canon's 35mm f/2 lens has been due for a while. It will be interesting to see if Sigma fills that void.
I'd love a 35mm f/2 USM with improved bokeh.
