We’ve been told that Canon’s next L lens would be a prime. Most of the people I’ve talked to think that the EF 35mm f/1.4L will be the lens getting the update. There have been a lot of patents in the past for the optical formula, and recently a new one has appeared.
Patent Publication No. 2015-72370 (Google Translated)
- Published 2015.4.16
- Filing date 2013.10.3
- Focal length f = 35.47mm
- Fno. 1.45
- Half angle of view ω = 31.38 °
- Image height Y = 21.64mm
- Lens length 141.37mm
- BF 39.37mm
- Positive, positive ShiboTadashi
We expect to see a new L lens some time in late summer or early fall and all the signs continue to point to a new 35L.

LensRentals.com has discovered issues with the sensors on the brand new Canon EOS Rebel T6s & EOS Rebel T6i. Out of 20 cameras they received the exhibited the following issue.
Every once in a while we notice something, because of the large quantities of cameras and lenses we buy, that we think people should be aware of. This particular issue won’t affect our renters; we’ve sent the affected cameras back. It may not affect very many people at all, since this is from a relatively small sample size. But I still think it worth mentioning.
The bottom line is that 4 of the Canon T6s and 2 of the T6i cameras we received had to be sent back because of a defect in the sensor stack (the layers of filter glass over the sensor). This is out about 10 copies of each; the others were absolutely perfect.

We’re told that one of the upcoming tilt-shift lenses will actually be a macro lens. We’ve been told in the past that Canon would add a new type of macro to the lineup and this is the first we’ve heard of it being a tilt-shift.
We do expect L replacements to the TS-E 45 and TS-E 90 to come eventually, as people have been asking since the TS-E 17 and TS-E 24 were announced years ago.
More to come…
