Lenses: 35L II & 85L III Next Up? [CR1]
« on: April 23, 2012, 03:26:41 PM »
“L” Primes Coming?
Received two bits of information about possible upcoming lenses from Canon. Apparently both the 35 f/1.4L and 85 f/1.2L II are slated to be updated. As with all things in regards to lenses from Canon, no one is quite sure when either could be announced. It was suggested the 35 f/1.4L II has been delayed on numerous occasions for  redesign and tweaking.

This is the first I have heard seriously about an 85L replacement, but anything that speeds up the AF of the lens would be very welcomed.

I believe we’ll have to see the new 500, 600 and 24-70′s shipping before we get another major “L” lens updated.

I'd be pleased to see a 35L II with weather sealing.  A fast-focusing 85L would be awesome (and no doubt awesomely expensive)!!

Why? Does canon really need to replace these lenses? they are not that old. Canon really need to get their act together and update the 35mm f2 which is a terrible lens. Seeing nikon's 35mm dx 1.8 makes me wonder why canon haven't done the same

I have really lost the will to care for any new Canon products :( I can guess the new 85 will be 3000 USD, the new 35 will be 2000 USD. Both will be overpriced like all new Canon products :( I visit this site out of a habit now not because I'm really waiting for something new because of the new prices.

Whining aside, I'd love to see new non-L primes. I love my 85/1.8 for example and I'd love to see a new good non-L 35/1.8 or 35/2 with a similar performance  :-\

Well based on the 5DMarkIII, and the 24-70mm 2.8II...there will just be a $1000 add-on..no biggie...that seems to be Canon's modus operandi these days...so I would be expecting a price of about $3200..oh..no IS, either.
(said very sarcastically). The prices are becoming absurd.
Think I will just keep my slow focusing beast!...Love that lens except for the Chromatic Aberrations I get sometimes.

If it'll bring the price of the current 85mm f1.2 down I'll be happy to see a ver. III. Odd though, the ver. II isn't that old. 6 years?

85mm is personally my favorite focal length (I shoot full frame).  I have yet to go L lenses in this length, I still love my 85/1.8 Non-L.  I'll wait on Fred Miranda's site for a great deal on an 85LII if I get that L lens itch.  For now, I'm still in that honeymoon phase with my 85/1.8 -  something about it just makes me feel more creative when I shoot whatever, and just don't see an 85LII in the near future, and don't see an 85LIII being released any time soon.

I have been pining over the 24L TS-E II for landscaping pictures I only dream of taking, but that is for another thread.  Damn you Fred Miranda and your gorgeous pictures with that lens  ;D ;D

35L II = 2499 USD or 2299 Euro

85L III = 3499 USD or 3299 Euro

50L II = 2700 USD or 2499 Euro

135L II IS = 2899 USD or 2699 Euro

24-105L F4 IS II = 1999 USD or 1799 Euro

100-400L IS II = 2499 USD or 2299 Euro

ALL completly redesigned ( thats why Canon can ask for more money ).

It's time to save your money for all that lenses. (est. 16 000 USD)

cheers.

No cheap lenses even secondhand. With Canon policy to create the new versions much more expensive the old versions do not sell cheap unfortunately :(

Have you seen many cheap 300 f2.8L IS, 400mm f/2.8L IS,  70-200 f2.8L IS, 200mm f1.8L,  for example?

I am afraid we will not see cheap 500mm f/4L IS, 600mm f/4L IS either (when the II versions start selling)

This Canon policy infuriates me (not that I can do anything about it...)  >:( >:( >:(

Like the used market is flooded with 5dii's right now? (hint: it's not). Not everyone upgrades instantly, especially not at the 50% price premiums Canon has been marking lenses up. Especially not for a lens that is already some people's go-to lens they are happy with.

WHAT?
Seriously?
Are you a CANON employee?  (OK, that is a joke, unless it's true of course!!!)

135L II IS = 2899 USD or 2699 Euro 3ple price just mere IS? (don't tell me it needs to be perfected optically
I use the current 135mm at 2.0 with excellent results...)

100-400L IS II maybe after selling the version 1 assuming that Canon makes a superb lens...

35L II 2499 USD or 2299 Euro for improved sealing and (hopefully) better edges? No value for money.
The current is a very good one.

50L II = 2700 USD or 2499 Euro  This will be a joke.

24-105L F4 IS II = 1999 USD or 1799 Euro Too much for a f/4 zoom since the current one is very decent.

85L III = 3499 USD or 3299 Euro Extreme and Not for me but I would understand. There are some who swear by this lens.
