24 2.8 USM and 35 f/2.0 USM listed on CPS site
« on: October 21, 2011, 11:24:27 PM »
On the Canon CPS site, on the equipment loans page, two of the lenses listed are the "EF 24mm f/2.8 USM" and the "EF 35mm f/2.0 USM." It's near the bottom of the page. http://www.cps.usa.canon.com/loans/loans.shtml

This lens is not listed on the eligible products page. But the 35 f2 and 24 2.8 are too low-end to be considered "professional" lenses, right? The current 35mm f2 is not a CPS eligible product, but the 24 2.8 is. Hmm. It wasn't part of the old program, I remember looking.

Probably a typo, but it's strange that they mistyped those two lenses, AND included them in a higher-end lens list (evaluation loan list), AND put them near the bottom away from lenses of their focal length.

It is a typo, because neither the 35mm f/2 nor 24mm f/2.8 has USM.

When you go to register a product at Canon USA, you must pick from this list in the drop down pane.

If its not on this list, the site won'y register it!

Other countries may have a different list as well as different CPS requirements, in fact, I'm sure they do.

Well, they fixed it: it now says 24mm f/2.8 and 35mm f/2. It said USM before. I thought it might not be a typo but new lenses, because those two lenses aren't considered "pro" or high-end. So CPS members can evaluate the 24 2.8 and 35 f2, but not the 28 2.8. Hmm.

yeah, no more USM written there.
Still, given how 'out-of-place' it was, can we turn this into a future product rumour? please?
I just bought the Samyang 35/1.4, but if canon can make a new 35/2 USM version with AF that's as good IQ i'd consider switching back...

Yeah, well spotted, way back in october even.
Maybe they ditched the 35mm in favour of the 28mm, or the 35mm is coming with the next aps-c body as a kit?

makes me wonder about all those other 'slipups' they've had on websites last year, like the one where they accidentally showed the '6D' on the dslr product page. Maybe 6D and 35mm f/2.0 are next?
