The Next Lens from Canon Will be an EF-S Prime

By Canon Rumors | January 19, 2017 | Canon Lens Rumors

We’re told that the next new non-kit lens Canon will announce is an EF-S prime. We weren’t told what focal length the new EF-S prime lens would be, but we do know that it’s not a specialty lens like a macro.
