I can't wait for the fast 90s lenses to be updated. The 20, 28, and 50 sorely need it. The 85 and 100 still hold up well but I wouldn't say no to sealing and IS.

Curious: are any non-(L or DO) lenses weather sealed?

It is such a shame after the 24/28 IS twins and then the 35 f/2 IS that the family didn't continue into 50/85 and then some. I'm very happy for all of the 85 1.4 IS owners out there, it's too bad there isn't a little brother for different budgets.

That's because they are in different families.  See chart (a bit dated in fairness), but you see that the 24/28/35 IS lenses were actually replacements/upgrades to an even older family of lenses than the 'middle' family we have been waiting for replacements for.

We have yet to see a replacement for the middle family 20 / fast 28 / 50 / 85 / 100 USM primes that came out from 1991-1995.

I´m hopeless.
Canon wont make an 85mm 1.8 IS like de 35mm and any 50mm IS will be L.

I'm aware of the different family thing, I owned a couple of those older ones. The 35 was like having a bee buzzing in your ear when trying to lock focus.

So glad to see Tokina back in the game.  My 11-16 f/2.8 is awesome.  Even though it's technically a "crop" lens it works great as a 16mm f/2.8 on my full-frame 6D!

If that replacement ever happens, it will not have IS, as the 24-28-35 had.

With 85mm f/1.4L IS USM & 100mm f/2.8 IS USM, Canon can't have cheaper 85mm f/1.8 IS USM & 100mm f/2 IS USM as well, especially in a shrinking market.

Hope Canon updates the f/1,2L with a mark II or offer a 50mm f/1,4L IS like the 85mm f/1,4L IS!

I trust Canon to follow the 85mm f/1.4L IS with an as expensive 50mm f/1.4L IS.

Personally, I've invested in four expensive L zooms, I'm not going to spend $1,000+ a piece on an L prime as well.

Absolutely agreed, they should do two 50 L’s also, a 50 f1.4 L IS equal in IQ to the 85 IS would be excellent 8)

I really look forward to seeing the price point and the results this lens can produce. Tokina has a good track record over overbuilding lenses that look like they're extremely outdated. This is the first lens I've seen from the brand that looks modern and looks nice. The hands on videos show off the details of the lens and it's a very nice looking piece of glass. Tokina has always manufactured some great performing lenses...hopefully their AF motor is a little quieter these days, but that's going to reflect in the price point.

Do you have links to any hands-on videos? I couldn’t seem to find anything yet...

I know this was an 'announcement' but it was stated a prototype would be available to see at CP+ (This week) and that availability starts summer 2018.

Lenstip has posted hands on preview of this new lens. It certainly looks modern and well polished lens.

I am looking at getting a 50mm L prime. Hopes it come soon else I would get the f/1,2L
