My personal votes for the three lenses:

  • EF 50mm f/1.4L IS USM

  • EF 50mm f/1.4 IS USM

  • EF 50mm f/1.4 USM II

- A

And why not EF 50mm f/1.4 IS USM DO Macro 1.4TC while we're at it :-D

Jokes aside it would be really nice to get a combo 50/1.4 IS and 85/1.4 IS by the end of this year.

I wasn't joking.

My 50mm f/1.4 USM just died, and I'm buying a new one. Would have bought a 50mm f/1.4 IS USM, if Canon actually made one.

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

Here you go.

Thanks.  I guess I did see this and thought it was an "artist's rendition."  Looks better balanced to me.

Also, AHSanford, refresh my memory--would you accept a 50mm 1.2L if it was as quick and otherwise practical as, say, the 35mm 1.4?  I guess that extra, what, 1/3 f/stop, adds too much weight and cost?

Can't remember why you seem to oppose 1.2.

Cheers!

  • You might have more or less gear
Hopefully it's the 46mm EF-S Macro we have all been waiting for with built in Wifi

That's not a picture of the Canon though, just a little joke I think :D. It is the Sigma 85mm 1.4 Art with a red ring and new logo photoshopped on top. It might still be pretty accurate, seeing that the Canon 35mm 1.4 L II is fairly close to the Sigma 35mm 1.4 Art in size, weight and shape. It is in fact a little big bigger and heavier even. Since this lens get's IS, I guess it is fair to assume it will be at least as large as the Sigma?

+1 on a new 50mm by the way. I don't use a lens from that focal length currently, but once I've adressed other parts of my lens collection a 50mm with a recent optical formula and decent price might add a finishing touch.

  • Gear limits your creativity
I don't even dare guess the price of a Canon 85/1.4L IS USM lens. I just assume it'll be more expensive than the 35/1.4L II USM.
Preferred gear: 5D IV, 35/1.4L, 85/1.4L IS, 70-200/2.8L IS, Elinchrom RX
Backup: 5D II, 17-40/4L, 85/1.8, 100-400/4.5-5.6L, Yongnuo + 622

Finally! They're going to release the Canon EF-M 12mm f/2, (...) :)
If it's anywhere near the 11-22mm quality Wise, it's an instant buy for me (I allready have the samyang :) )

The 50mm f1.2 is a really weak lens that needs updating before the 85 imo. The look is nice out of it but its really soft on the edges, and worlds worse than my sigma 50.
If they could just keep the nice look of the canon 50, as shots look prettier with it, but improve its design to be sharper this would be great. Its not fair that the 16-35 has had 3 x updates while the 50 has been left on the wayside!

And why not EF 50mm f/1.4 IS USM DO Macro 1.4TC while we're at it :-D

How about EF 50mm f/1.0 IS?

Jokes aside, I'd pay a lot of dollars for a 50mm that is really good wide open.. and it's not going to happen, again.

There has been 50/1.0L. Cost was about the same as Zeiss 55/1.4 Otus  >:(

50/1.2L has uncorrected spherical aberration, which makes a great bokeh and OOF transition at the cost of sharpness and possible focus shift. They would have to go retrofocal, aspherical and with floating group as Sigma and Zeiss Milvus/Otus have.

But release of lenses doesn't follow conventional rules. Otherwise, the 85 f1/.4L lens won't be released together with the M20.
