By Canon Rumors | February 15, 2017 | Canon DSLR News

Canon has been pretty busy with announcements so far in 2017, We’re only 6 weeks in and already we’ve seen 4 notable cameras announced. We expect the lenses to be coming over the next few months. We believe the next lens will be an EF-S prime, which we’re still trying to get more information on. Also, don’t forget we’re going to see an EF 85mm f/1.4L IS some time in 2017.
