Nokishita has posted similar information about the upcoming 4 lenses from Canon, along with a couple of added goodies.
Canon will announce the following new products soon. (Google Translated)
- EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM
- TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro
- The official name of the other two but unconfirmed, the focal length and F values 90mm f/2.8L and 50mm /f2.8L becomes. (We’ve pretty much confirmed a TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro and a TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro.)
- Lens hood “ET – 83E” “ET – 88” “ES – 84”
- Macro twin light “MT-26EX”
We do not have any information on pricing or availability of any of these four lenses. Since we’ve known about the 85mm f/1.4L IS for quite some time, we’re hoping availability comes swiftly after the announcement.

As with most new Canon DSLR releases, there are some third party lenses that may present the odd vignette when “Lens Aberration Correction” is turned on with various Canon DSLRs.
We have found that some SIGMA interchangeable lenses for CANON are not fully compatible with CANON EOS 6D Mark II released on August 4th, as well as EOS 9000D (77D), EOS Kiss X9i (Rebel T7i) and EOS Kiss X9 (Rebel SL2).
When certain lenses are attached to these cameras and the “Lens aberration correction” function on these cameras is set to “Enable” for Live View shooting, an error would occur.
Please set the “Lens aberration correction” function of the cameras to “Disable” when using SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses for CANON.
In addition, please also refer to other notice below, related to the usage of EOS mount SIGMA lenses on Canon cameras.

Further clarification and corrections on our previous reports regarding the new tilt-shift lenses that are coming.
We’re told that we were incorrect on the TS-E 45mm f/2.8L and that it is in fact a TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro, the TS-E 90mm f/2.8L was correct, except that it to, will have macro functionality. We also assumed that all of the lenses are f/2.8L, but we’re told that the TS-E 135mm is actually an f/4L with macro capability.
The macro feature is 1:2 and not 1:1 across all three of the new tilt-shift lenses.
We also received further information in regards to the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS, a lens I’m looking forward to.
The new tilt-shift lenses
- TS-E 50mm f/2.8L Macro
- TS-E 90mm f/2.8L Macro
- TS-E 135mm f/4L Macro
- All these new tilt-shift lenses have 1:2 (0.5x) macro magnification
Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM
- Positioned between the EF 85mm f/1.2L II and the EF 85mm f/1.8
- Same styling as the new EF 35mm f/1.4L II
- Fast AF and a 4 stop effective IS.
All of this is still [CR2] until we get the confirmation that makes us comfortable with upgrading the rating of the rumor. This round of lenses has been extremely hard to get information on, but we do hope we have now got the correct information.
We’re still told everything is coming at the end of August.
Update: 18:09 EST, August 12, 2017: We’ve upgraded this information to [CR3]

DPReview has completed their review of the Canon EOS 6D Mark II rather quickly and came away liking, but not loving it.
It’s true that every objective specification of the 6D Mark II has been improved upon when compared with its predecessor, while the release price has remained the same. Unfortunately, unless you’re a die-hard Canon user with an investment in glass and you just need an affordable backup body, it’s difficult to look past all that competing cameras have to offer…..
… As it should be, the EOS 6D II is a better camera than its predecessor in every way. With plenty of resolution, respectable burst shooting speeds and pleasing Canon color, it’s a camera that’s capable of producing great images in a variety of situations. Despite this, it is simply overshadowed by competition that is made up of more capable cameras at similar or lower prices. Read the full review
Just like most of the people that have used the Canon EOS 6D Mark II, it’s a nice upgrade from the original, but may not compete all that well with competitors. Here’s hoping we don’t have to wait another 5 years for a successor.
At the end of the day, the camera will be judged by how well it sells. Casual consumers have a tendency to care a little less about certain specifications than us passionate gear nuts.
