We May Be Waiting a Little While Longer for a New 50mm Lens [CR2]

We May Be Waiting a Little While Longer for a New 50mm Lens [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | November 8, 2017 | Canon Lens Rumors

This is bad news for a lot of folks, myself included. We’re told not to expect a new 50mm lens in the first half of 2018. Neither of the two lenses that appeared for certification is a 50mm lens.

This doesn’t mean we won’t see a new 50mm in 2018,  it just won’t be for CP+ in February.

I can already hear the sadness from a few regulars on the CR forum.

Another Mention of a Canon Non-L Telephoto Zoom [CR2]

Another Mention of a Canon Non-L Telephoto Zoom [CR2]

By Canon Rumors | November 6, 2017 | Canon Lens Rumors

News about the long rumored supertelephoto zoom from Canon has gone quiet over the last 6 months or so, but we’re now being told the lens is coming in 2018, though the exact time of the announcement is currently unknown. Though the source did say it would not be coming for CES or CP+ in the first quarter of 2018.

As you know, there has been patents for a 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS optical formula in the past. The source did say any super telephoto zoom such as this will not be an L lens, as to not “step on” the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II and to keep the retail price in line with the consumers that buy these type of lenses. Likely, it’s also to remain price competitive with both Sigma and Tamron.

We still do not know which two lenses appeared for certification recently, but we hope to know more soon.
