New Canon 70-200mm Lenses Coming in Early June [CR3]
« on: May 15, 2018, 10:07:18 AM »

We’re told that Canon will finally unveil their new 70-200mm lenses with an early June announcement. Yes, that’s plural.


We can 100% confirm that one of the new lenses will be an EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II.


We can also 95% confirm that the second lens will be a EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III. All of the tips we’ve seen point to this lens coming, but we haven’t actually seen the “f/2.8L IS III” in writing.


We do not know pricing or when these new 70-200mm lenses will begin shipping.


Please keep in mind that lens announcement dates can change, even at the last minute.

How much?

If you've gotta ask, you can't afford it.

Dammit Canon, right when I think I could finally go buy myself a nice prime lens this summer, you replace my most-used, most mission-critical lens.

Well, guess that 85mm f/1.4L IS can wait until next year.... My 70-200 f/2.8L IS II is my oldest lens still in service, and the age is starting to show. Have beat it up in all kinds of ways in all kinds of places. Not sure if it ever hasn't smelled like smoke with the amount of fire it has seen.
Bodies: 1DX mark II, 5d Mark III
Lenses: 16-35mm F/4L IS |  24-70mm F/2.8L II | 70-200mm F/2.8L IS II | 100-400mm F/4.5-5.6L IS II  | 50mm 1.8 STM

It will be interesting in what ways it will be better than the existing camera and how in real world situations that would prove itself.
I find it hard to perceive a 70-200mm better than the existing one so it will be interesting.
A 70-200 F4 is tempting for travel as its far lighter and also the existing version is very good.
I can't wait to see the tests on these two.

How many versions will they make of this one until they finally make a usable 50mm 1.2 ?

It's difficult to focus correctly on close distances and wide open. Even the contrast AF does it wrong.

All alternatives don't do it for me.

I own the existing f/4 70-200 IS and it is really really good. Only f/4 @ 1.2m & 200mm shows some halos around sharp subjects but just that is some interesting rendering of the real object and at the end the sharpness/contrast/"texture fidelity" are great just in that worst case scenario.

Maybe the have shorter minimum focus distance (others have in their comparable lenses) and
maybe they have some movie related AF mechanism which uses USM for sports and STM for video and
maybe some enhancements for the IS (5-stop? 6-stop?).
Most used tools: EOS 200D + EF-S 60mm + 4.0 / 70-200 IS AND/OR EOS 5D i  + 4.0 70-200 IS + 2.8 100 Macro

Yeah, when I read this, that was my first thought too...

the 70-200mm f/2.8 is about my oldest (2nd lens I bought after I got my first DSLR, a 5D# when it came out)...and I have a hard time imagining what they could do to really make any meaningful improvements to it.

I'll look forward to reading about it, but man..what could they do that would warrant a few thousand dollars upgrade?

Well it looks like any hope of a new mount for mirrorless is dead.

Why "hope" ?

Do you want to have all your existing lenses obsoleted and buy new? Little longer ones to compensate for the shorter flange distance of the new camera??? did you do the math how much this would cost you? i did... :(

This (impending) lens announcement has nothing to do with Canon's mount decision for mirrorless.
