Another Canon EF 135mm f/2L IS USM Mention [CR2]
« on: December 05, 2017, 11:19:54 AM »
We’ve received another mention of a Canon EF 135mm f/2L IS USM coming in the first half of 2018, we see the CP+ show in Japan as a good time to announce the lens.

We’re told production of the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS will have to meet global demand before the announcement.

We’re also told that the original non-IS version will remain current for some time after the new lens appears.

Exciting times! So thankful for the information this website brings. Image stabilization and better chromatic aberration control will make this one very fine lens. I wonder whether BR will appear here.

Having demand exceed supply is pretty awesome, with both being high end primes.

A refreshed 135/2 will be a no-brainer for me.

I think I'd rather have 2.0 and IS vs 1.8 and no IS like the ART.

But will it work with extenders?

For me that's the biggest plus about the 135 2.0L

When I look at Canon (high-end) lens lineup, it's really 8)
Now, I'm wondering what's left to be updated a part from 50mm and 70-200 (and this latest only deserves an update because other brands did, but is not in need of an update)
Nice job Canon! I'm more skeptical as regards their bodies, but lenses are waouh.

Please update the 50L with 1.4 and IS before you touch the 135

No, this will not happen. Canon will release an update of every other lens with added IS before a new 50mm.

I bet if ahsanford just stopped asking, they'd make the new 50/1.4 IS USM.   ;)

As everybody tells you every time you ask this about every new lens, no, BR is only useful for wide angle lenses.
