I agree that it looks like a fake.  But then...I said the same thing about the first image of the 24-70mm II...   :-[

I'd be happy to be wrong again!

Exactly. This image having some work done on it does not mean it is fake.

...yes, yellowish front element looked like fake on 24-70 Mk II. But...is 24-70 Mk II available ? ;)  ;D

But I would be happy if such a lens like this exists.

Looks fake to me too.

It looks like a merger of current 100L Macro and 24-70 f/2.8 L USM II.
But, who's to say that it won't end up looking like a merger of the two. It's likely to have the same IS system as the 100L, and if they are moving it to f/1.8 from f/2, it might need a larger front element (thus the 82mm). In fact, any new 135L would probably look really similar to the 100L based on the focal length.

I agree it looks photoshopped, but, the reason its a believable one is because the lens will probably look very similar.
maybe some dudes will fleabay their Mk.1's and we can get them at nice prices...
They are already at nice prices. That said, if Canon releases a new one at $2000+, you won't get the Mk. 1 for very cheap. If anything, it'd increase the prices as everyone who wanted a 135L can't afford the $2k and will settle for the Mk1 at $1000ish...rather than the $800ish they go for now.

I'd say $1700 for the new 135L, but, IS might push it up a little more

I would sell both my 135 and 85 L II for this if it was real.

Anywho, even if they haven't designed it yet or have gone in to production, it will still take 6 years before we can actually hold and use one...

I really like the 135mm f/2.0L, however, I don't use it as much as I used to because it is starting to show its age. The lens isn't much faster focusing than the 85mm f/1.2L II (feels like it has slowed down over a few years) and I think the focusing speed needs to be improved to keep up with the 1DX. 135mm is one my favorite focal lengths for basketball so I'm looking forward to a new model. I don't need the extra 1/3 stop of light or IS but will happily take any improvements I can get my hands on.

Yeah, then you need another copy, the 135 is 8 times faster than my 85.... In fact I find the 135 faster than the 70-200 2,8mk1..

FAKE, I agree BUT....if its real, bring it on.  The 135 is one of Canon's best portrait lenses IMHO.  IS Would be a great asset to this lens however one more stop (1.8) would not do it justice considering the potential price.  Oh yeah, I'd probably rent it first and then decide if its worth it.  I'm comparing this with 85L, 100L and 70-200LII.
A few cameras and lenses and a lot of creative energy and imagination.

I have the 135L F2.0 and love it, and I am not thrilled by the prospect of such a lens.

However, this looks fake to me. It looks like a photoshoppet barrel of the 100L F2.8 HIS Macro. They have changed the lower distance ,3 to ,8 (which should not be too hard to alter). Besides that. If as it says, you have the option of .8-2.5m, then 2.5 towards infinity, why would you need a separate Full option???
