Supertelephoto Lens Updates Are Getting Closer [CR1]

Updates to Canon’s line of “big white lenses” is getting closer we’re told. Some of these new lenses will be present at the World Cup in Russia, which begins on June 14.

We generally assume the “big whites” as the following lenses.

  • EF 200mm f/2L IS
  • EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II
  • EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II
  • EF 500mm f/4L IS II
  • EF 600mm f/4L IS II
  • EF 800mm f/5.6L IS

We weren’t told which lenses would be in testing, but we highly doubt all of these lenses would be tested at World Cup games. It makes sense that 300mm to 600mm lenses could potentially be used.

If you’re watching the matches, keep a close eye on the sidelines.
