Canon EF 135mm f/2L IS Coming in 2017 [CR2]
« on: January 09, 2017, 02:47:15 PM »
We’re told that a new Canon EF 135mm f/2L IS is planned for 2017, the new EF 135mm f/2L IS would be announced after the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS has started shipping.

We still do not know the announcement date for that lens, just that it’s coming in 2017.

We’re going to try and get some confirmation so we can upgrade the rating.

More to come…

I want the rumors about both of these lenses to be true but I'm having a hard time believing either one.

BOTH of these lenses would wind up in my gear bag very quickly. As much as I love my current 135L, I may actually be more interested in the new 85 as it is a focal length I'm weak in (I just prefer the 135) and the IS would be HUGE for me when shooting portraits with my 5DSR.  I hope they also put IS in the 135 and are able to keep it at f2 doing so. I may be hoping for too much though. It would be a big sucker for sure but I dont care.

I would love to see this lens and hope that it retains the look I love so much from my current 135L. Rounded blades and IS would make this lens a no brainier for me.

I have never had a complaint about my 135L. I'll need to do some side by side tests to become a switcher/upgrader.

Cue 'why it can't it be f/1.8' and 'the current 135L doesn't need to be replaced' comments in 3, 2, 1...

Count me in. Mine needs IS badly. It will be the king of low light video, night portraiture and low light frame grab.

And the "it will cost twice as much", because, well, it probably will.  The "IS tax" is steep :)

The king is already the 200mm f2 IS. I can get 1/8th of a second handheld shots 😍
