New 50mm On Coming Soon? [CR2]

We’re told that a new 50mm lens was coming fairly soon. We weren’t told if it was a replacement for the f/1.4 version or the f/1.2L version.

I think a lot of us would assume that the 30+ year old EF 50mm f/1.4 is the likely candidate, but that’s been talked about for years. The EF 50mm f/1.2L could use an update as well and would really benefit from a floating element design.

The EF 50mm f/1.8 was updated last year.

More to come…
