To further clarify the certification post from yesterday, we have been told what to expect announcement wise from Canon at the end of August.


Firstly, the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS is scheduled to be announced at this time. We do not have any specifications or pricing at this time.


Secondly, “interchangeale lens 2” will actually be three different lenses. We’re working on getting the focal length of the lenses. It doesn’t feel that they’ll be L series lenses and we’re not sure if they’re EF-M, EF-S or EF at this time.

Thank you for putting so much effort in this site.
But I would not be surprised if the new lens (2) are actually the current ef-m 15-45, 55-200 and 18-150 in white color.
The new Eos M20 will come in different colors as well. I just hope it will have a hotshot like the first Eos M classic.
2017 has been a cheap year for me until now, but I could use a new compact camera.

definitely not "L" with them being made in Malaysia.

PS my EF-M 18-150mm is made in Malaysia, not sure about any of the new EF-S lenses.  the new 18-55 4-5.6 was made in Taiwan as were my other EF-M's.

Odds are it will be a cheaper consumer lens though.

Hoping atleast one of those lenses is replacement for EF 50mm Macro or EF 180mm macro. I really cannot justify 1699$ price tag of Sigma 180mm macro even though it is the best 180mm right on market.

Personally, I find the 85mm 1.2L II one of the most difficult lenses to hold without shake.  It's the shape which makes my hold awkward and balance different than all other lenses.

I hope the shape of the 85 1.4 is a little longer, maybe not so "fat."  Certainly IS will be a huge help, but even more so if the ergonomics are better.

Did I miss the memo showing what the new lens actually looks like?

Long indeed. You'll have to forgive me, I smoked a little too much crack before writing that reply...

Funny how everyone has already given up on the 50/1.4 :)

I wish for a nextgen 70-200/4 as well as an EF-M version of it.

What's wrong with current 70-200/4? Both non-IS and IS are very sharp and especially IS version is basically sharp as it gets. Their pricing is also not probihitive, considering they're L lenses with amazing build and optical quality. Also EF-M version does not make much sense as dimensions would be very similar to a current lens with EF/EF-M adapter. You can't cheat physics :)

I am still hoping to see the EF-S 30 f/1.8 and EF-M 35 f/2 lenses.

Indeed. Canon could get inspired at Fuji and along 22/2 lens, there could be 31/2 and 53/2 lenses as well. Canocron lenses ;)

YES!!  :D :D :D This sounds like good ol Canon boldness. But where is a 28mm 1.4L BR!! That is a lens I'm dying to get.
I'm guessing the 3 others will be M mount for sure.
