New Wide Angles Lenses in 2013 [CR2]

New Wide Angles Lenses in 2013 [CR2]

Announcements in the fall
We’re told that two new wide angle zooms for full frame will be coming from Canon in the next 6-8 months. At least one of them could be announced in Q4 of 2013.

One of the lenses will be the 14-24 f/2.8L, that will complete Canon’s run of lenses covering 14mm to 560mm.

The other will be a replacement to both the 16-35 f/2.8L II and the 17-40 f/4L. We’re told one of the configurations in test is an EF 16-50 f/4L IS.

This comes from a source that has been correct in the past, although timing is always hit and miss with Canon lenses.
