Stolen at CES?
The Sigma 180 f/2.8 OS Macro lens that was showcased at CES 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada has gone missing.
The lens was one of 2 pre-production models believed to be in existence. If you took it, give it back. For the record, I touched it, but I left it at the Sigma booth.
Welcome to CES 2012
We’ve arrived and are ready to cover all things Canon! We’ll also be coving a few other things too.
I have posted a page that we’ll update throughout the day. You’ll see it at the top left of the site.

Lenses coming soon?
Received some information today that pointed to possible lens announcements in January, possibly on the 3rd.
This is plausible, because CES/PMA starts on January 10, 2012. This would also go in line with the staggered lens/body announcements we’ve seen in the past with pro bodies. The 1D Mark IV was announced in October, and the EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II came at the beginning of the following January.
Lenses mentioned were the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x, 24-70 f/2.8L II and 35 f/1.4L II.
A few other pieces of information have said Canon will be updating a lot of current lenses in the next 24 months, I’d rank this as pretty tentative for the moment. Lenses are always difficult to predict and I’m not sure we really know the whole story about Canon’s production abilities in Japan.
