The Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS USM II Still Scheduled to Arrive This Year [CR3]

We’re told that the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM II is still scheduled to arrive this year. Keep in mind lens announcements can be bumped pretty easily, which we saw recently with the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III. That lens was initially schedule to be announced in June.

We can confirm that this will be the first Canon lens with an LCD display built-in, however we’re still not sure what information will be present on the digital display.

The lens will be equipped with Nano-USM, the latest IS and will be heavier than the current model. Expect a big optical upgrade too we’re told.

There’s also a buzz about another DSLR body coming, dubbed DS126651, as seen at a Russian certification agency. We haven’t personally heard anything about another imminent camera body.

More to come…
