Patent: Canon EF 35 f/2 IS
« on: February 24, 2012, 06:33:46 PM »
Canon EF 35 f/2 IS Patent The release of the 24 f/2.8 IS & 28 f/2.8 IS lenses brought a lot of questions wondering where the replacement 35 f/2 was. All 3 have shown up in the same patent, so that could mean a 35 f/2 IS is on the way.

Well at least it's f/2, not f/2.8 like those last two primes.

At least double! After all it's a faster f/2.0 not a slow f/2.8  :(

If it's less than 600€ I'd snap one up immediately.  It certainly has fewer & less complex elements than the other two designs.

Also bear in mind that Sony has a stabilized E-mount 50mm f/1.8 going for $400 now...

The current micromotor 35mm is f/2.0...

Bah. I was kinda hoping for a 35 1.4L IS.

And dont tell me that IS is not necessary on a 1.4 lens. IS is always good.

It may be good, but just not worth paying for at some focal lengths.  I'd rather pay for quality optics over IS, especially on a wide angle lens.  Now if it were an EF-S, I could understand, that's like a 50mm FF equivalent. 

A new 35 1.4 is on the way, but I'm pretty sure no IS.

Seriously, good for what? Seeing Canon come up with stuff like the above 35mm lens makes me go look at the Zeiss page all that more often...while hoping for a winning lottery ticket to go Leica...

Sounds nice. On a FF camera, this would probably end up as my walkaround prime: Faster than a zoom, stabilized, probably light and compact and hopefully not as expensive as the 35L.

But since I won't go to FF anytime soon, I hope an EF-S equivalent is on the way as well. ;) But there probably won't be, since they just announced the new 24mm f/2.8 IS.

I just bought the current 35 f/2.  I was going to wait for an update, but after seeing the pricing on the 24 f/2.8 IS and the 28 f/2.8 IS, I decided I wouldn't want to pay that much for a new 35 f/2 anyway, so why wait.  It will probably have killer optics, etc. but at those prices these are aimed at an entirely different market segment.

What are the chances canon keep all the current primes around and carry both?  Or do you think the old ones go away - no more affordable primes?

Well Adorama has been out of stock of these wide angles for awhile now - al though B&H seems to have kept up their invitory.

I don't want to be to pessimistic but....I do believe that the old primes will not be sold after the new ones arrive. And the new primes will be at least twice to three times the price of the old primes.  :(

Improved IQ & USM would be at least as nice as IS.

E.g. adding diaphragm blades to improve bokeh would be really nice.

My guess is its more likely the original 35mm f/2 will stay around than the 24mm and 28mm 2.8's unless Canon brings out a new EF-S prime, its much more popular with crop users as a cheap standard prime afterall.
