Three New Lenses~~~
« on: February 06, 2012, 05:27:23 AM »
Three Canon lenses photos were just posted in a Chinese photo forum, source is from a Japanese website
Link: http://digicame-info.com/2012/02/ef28mm-f28-is-usmef24mm-f28-is.html
Canon EF 28mm f2.8 IS USM
Canon EF 24mm f2.8 IS USM
Canon EF 24-70mmm f2.8 II

It's very strange that 28mm and 24mm wide angel prime lenses have IS, any idea??

I wouldnt say that strange, on FF those are focal lenghts where many people are going to be stopping down for landscapes plus there both good potential general purpose lenses for a crop.

It's a good sign that Canon starts to update their non-L primes

Little strange that the 24-70 seems to have a 82mm filter ring  :o

I wouldnt say that strange, the 16-35 2.8 went up from 77mm to 82mm in the mk2 didnt it? might be due to the wider front element but that pic looks a little shorter to me, looks like the lens is retracted at 24mm rather than 70mm aswell.

Yep
The new Tamron 24-70mm f2.8 VC also has a 82mm filter ring.

It will be really interesting to hear how the 24-70 lens has been improved.  There had been rumours that there would be an IS version, but that does not appear to be the case.

This lens will probably be offered as a "kit" lens with the (hopefully soon-to-be-announced) successor(s) to the 5DII (5D3, 5DX, 3D or whatever), but for those who already own the current 24-70, the question will be whether to upgrade.

My speculation (and it is only a speculation) is that if the lens really uses an 82mm filter now (instead of 77mm), we are not just looking at a minor upgrade, but a major redesign to improve what some people consider the biggest problem with the 24-70 lens - the focus plane curvature.  If they could reduce the weight at the same time, I would be very, very happy, but I guess that is too much to ask.

See that this new 24-70 is detracted at 24mm position.
The current model becomes longest at 24mm.

For those who spend more time looking at lenses than through them, do these look the right "style" for new Canon lenses? To my untrained eye I was hoping for something a little different in the 24-70, particularly a bigger zoom ring would have been nice as seems to be a trend, so I thought.

Or did someone in the far east just spend some time in Photoshop to make these?

So I'm guessing that huge & deep petal hood won't be returning for this Mk.II version. They sacrificed shading efficiency for compactness this time around.

there seems to be an IS switch at the top for the 24-70. The AF-MF switch has already been seen, so what the button at the top that we cant see? IS

If it had IS it would say so on the barrel label like on the other two lenses. I'm guessing that protrusion at the top is for a zoom lock switch to prevent lens creep.  8)

as an extra note, if this is the new 24-70, I am disappointed at the design. The current 24-70 is sexy as hell. It'll be like turning Kim Kadashin into Bjorn.

To reduce the size & weight, it appears Canon decided to have a "breast & butt reduction" (to continue with the Kim K. reference)...  :P

Funny. I was just about to post the opposite. The old 24-70 looks clunky and old to me. I think this new design is pretty bad A.

To each his own...
