New BR Lens Before the End of the Year? [CR2]

New BR Lens Before the End of the Year? [CR2]

We’re told that there is a chance Canon will announce another L lens before the end of the year featuring Canon’s new Blue Spectrum Refractive (BR) element. The announcement could fall into Q1 of 2016 as well.

Which lens would be announced wasn’t known by the source, but they did say it was likely going to be a zoom. The only L zoom that we’ve heard that is coming “soon” is a replacement for the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II. That lens is used a lot by event photographers, and with the EOS-1D X and EOS 5D Mark III set to be replaced in 2016, the timing is right.

More to come…
