EF 24-105 f/4L IS II [CR1]

EF 24-105 f/4L IS II [CR1]

With a 5D Mark III
Whenever we see a new 5D, I’m told we’ll also see it kitted with a new 24-105 f/4L IS II lens.

CR’s Take
There has been talk about this in the past, it’s definitely possible. The optics of this lens could be improved, though I think it’s very good.  I’d love to see it with the same hood/zoom design of the 24-70.

I have no idea if there’s some kind of design they could come up with to aid video.

EF 8-15 Fisheye Coming Soon?

Here’s Hoping!
Received some information today saying that initial availability of the EF 8-15 f/4L Fisheye will be in the next 20-40 days.

CR’s Take
It’s a good bet they want this lens out as soon as possible. It’s going to be a sales winner.

thanks Daniel

EF 135 f/1.8L IS [CR1]

From Anon
I’ve been sent info about an updated EF 135 f/2L. The source says we can expect it to get IS. It’ll either be f/2 or f/1.8. Both prototypes exist.

CR1 for now.

This is the first I’ve heard of such an update.

60D Image
There’s a 60D image making its way around the web. I haven’t posted it because it looks exactly like 50D pictures that are out there.

It’s extremely rare to see Canon promotional photos before a camera is released.
