Lenses: 35L II & 85L III Next Up? [CR1]

“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.
