New 30 f/1.8 Type Prime? [CR1]

Cheap prime!
The story goes a US tech rep said Canon was going to be putting out a lens to compete with Nikon’s popular 35 f/1.8 lens.

I’ve heard it from two places, one saying 30mm and the other 35mm.

It could be time for some new affordable primes.

Niche Lens News [CR2]

Fisheye Fun
I’m told Canon has been developing an EF-S fisheye for the last couple of years. It’ll be 8mm. We could possibly see the lens in the next few months.

Announcing a niche lens along with more mainstream stuff probably makes a lot of sense. What that mainstream stuff is, remains to be seen.

What about the 15mm?
From the same source, there is no plans to replace the EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye.
