What about the MP-E 65mm replacement, any news?
I remember seeing a related patent here

Hmmm so the one single non-L prime that needs more replacing than any lens in the entire lineup (yes even more than the 24mm 2.8 did), the 50mm 1.4, is not even on the road map???

I guess Canon likes the continuous profit they get form that model as people send it in for a $100 repair for the AF every year....   and $ for constant focus re-calibrations which never make do succeed in making it not need a different focus adjustment for different target distance....

Pretty sad if this is for year. 50mm 1.4 must be one of the single most popular primes and the Canon version has terrible erratic AF that is prone to breakage and they still refuse to just remake it with a proper ring USM???

Just remember that neither the 24mm nor 28mm lenses just announced were on this road map, while the 24-70mm f/2.8L II was.  Therefore, just because a 50mm f/1.4 II isn't on this list, that doesn't mean it isn't coming.

good point

I hope the 70-400 is a replacement for all of the 70/75/100-300 non-L lenses that are pointless now.

I can understand having cheap EF zooms back when film was the bread winner, but the 55-250 is better than the 75/100-300 lenses and is custom tailored (and low priced) to the crop Rebels.  Anyone who has a FF camera would be crazy to put 70/75/100-300 non-L lenses on it, so why is canon still making them?

I'm holding out hope for new versions of the 45mm TS-E & 90mm TS-E. The 60mm falls right in the midst of these focal lengths and has perked my interest.

One odd thought occurred to me though – could the EF-S list be referring to full-frame equivalents? For example an EF-S lens that is the equivalent of a full frame 20-65mm would make some sense.


No-one in the real world talks about equivalents. When was the last time you heard a Hasselblad owner say that his 80mm lens was equivalent to a Full Frame 50mm ???   ;)  ;)

My guess is that the 55-70 is a gap-filler lens since some kits are 18-55 and many other lenses are 70-something. I'm not sure why you'd want one but whatever. maybe it will be a good EF-S like the 17-55.
Canon XTi, AE-1 Program, Rebel II, Tamron 17-50 VC, Zenitar-M 50/1.7 and a bunch of other cheap lenses (50/1.8FD, 18-55 EF-S Kit, 35-70 Kit, 80-200 4.5-5.6). S100 classic.

I'm with cbphoto. The TS-E 90 has nice IQ, but needs the usability of the 17L and 24L.

Perhaps there's a typo mistake on the "55-70mm" moniker ?

Maybe its a "15-70mm" instead ? As a replacement for the much loved EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 instead ???   ;D

I was just going to ask about the 200-400. This lens has been talked about for a long time, even officially. On Nov 15, 2011 it was announced by Canon that it would be delayed, which in and of itself is an acknowledgement that it exists and in development. We even saw photos of it on that Japanese safari guy's 1Dx. The fact that it's not mentioned at all leaves me a little suspicious about the legitimacy of the list in general.
