Which L lens will be the first mark III?
« on: July 09, 2012, 10:44:25 AM »
Just something that hit me while reading the last post about 24-70 IS.

Correct me if I am wrong, but the most updated current L lenses are mark II, right? I am just counting lenses that has a "II" in its name, not stabilized/non-stabilized lenses.

Which of the current L mark II lenses do you think will be the first to be updated and receiving the mark III designation. There is one shitty EF-S kitlens currently in mark III?

My bet would be 85/1.2L III.

Yes, there's the EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III, but there is also the EF35-80mm f/4-5.6 III, and the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 made it to MkIII in both USM and non-USM versions.  Want to go further?   The EF28-80mm f/3.5-5.6 III USM was followed by MkIV and MkV versions of the same lens.

I think we'll see either an 85L III or a 24L III as the first MkIII L-series, but I think it will be quite a while before that happens.

Or even the TSE-24 might make it

How about the 16-35?

I'd guess the 85L but not the 24L as it is pretty new, i realize the 85L is not too old as well. As far as outside your parameters of which ones are first i'd say the 35L since it is so old and popular and lacks gasketing like other L's.

The TC's are considered "L" lenses and are at Mark III now.

Who knows if Canon is going to start putting IS on their L primes..   I'd say 85LIII, unless they add IS..  of course, the one that I know for sure is going to have a MkIII is the 70-200 f2.8 IS

I wonder how feasible it is to have IS on fast primes.  Seems like f/2.8 is the max aperture for IS.  Does any company have IS on 35mm SLR lenses that are faster than f/2.8?

Forgotten about the Canon EF 200mm f/2L IS, have we?   ???

Yes, I did!  Are there any for f/1.4 or f/1.2?

... such was the quest to produce cheap consumer lenses even cheaper.
