*UPDATE* Canon EF 135 f/1.8L IS
« on: August 01, 2012, 03:00:38 PM »
*UPDATE*
Most seem to agree the image is a pretty good fake, albiet not a perfect one. 

Real or fake?
An image of a Canon EF 135 f/1.8L IS has shown up on the xitek forum.

For the moment, we have no idea if it’s real or a great Photoshop job. The lettering around the front of the lens looks a little off. However, discuss away!

I will note, there has been a patent for a 135 f/1.8 in the past.

I just checked out the current 135L through CPS and found it to be great, but really in need of IS. This is a no-brainer for me if it's real.

Maybe Canon hired the same visually impaired person that stencils the names on the Nikon D800?

Although I don't own one, I read everywhere that the current 135 f/2L is a supurb lens. If this 135 f/1.8L IS is real (does look real to me) and offers the same (or better) IQ and AF with a slighly faster apperture and IS, it will certainly be a great lens. Only downside will be the 2000+ price tag though.

Definitely looks like a 'shopped 100mm f/2.8L IS Macro.

They moved the "Canon badge" into the area where the tripod ring goes (note the badge is much wider than it needs to be, as if the word "Macro" had been removed) and then moved the distance scale (it's not from the 100 macro, though) to where the badge had been.  They also shortened the area between the focus ring and the red ring.

based on the photo -

i would say - FAKE.

the USM lettering on the front is not inline with the barrel and some other letters of the lens.

however, if this is true, i will pre-order right now.

I once own the 135L and 50L and bartered it with a TS-E 90 and 100L macro - which I would say - my friend got the better deal.

So, this one would be very sweet indeed if true. f/1.8 and IS ; AWESOME!

Looks faked to me.  Fair job of it though.

Something floating around at the Olympics, maybe? If it's real, this is probably the one lens I would sell a kidney to get my hands on. As it is, I'm already drooling over the 135mm f/2. And I'm not much of a drooler.

Oh. It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen... I want one.

I'll reserve judgement on the "real or not" question. I believe I and most others were wrong about the 24-70mm II

Note: Just because it's been photoshopped doesn't mean it isn't real.

Fake.

Aside from the lack of proper curve for the lettering around the USM IS part,
there is also a large amount of apparently cloned pixels.

My thoughts exactly. the lettering on the edge is not rounded well. The perspective on it is a bit off.

However if real; thats another $2200 lens that Canon will be happy to sell you... the good news... maybe some dudes will fleabay their Mk.1's and we can get them at nice prices...

Good catch. Also, it does appear the front element was lifted from a similar image of the 24-70/L II...

Looks fake to me too.

It looks like a merger of current 100L Macro and 24-70 f/2.8 L USM II.

...but...Im sure many of us would want such lens  ;) Could this be THE mysterious lens from post about new tilt-shifts ?  :)
