A few days ago we wrote about a new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III was in testing, but we didn’t know when it was coming.
We have received confirmation that a new EF 70-200mm is coming in 2018, and again, we’re pretty sure it’ll be announced ahead of Photokina in August or September.
We’re not calling it an “EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS III” for the time being, as a couple of our sources have hinted that there’s something “different” and “more” about this lens release. No one seems to want to let the cat out of the bag yet.
This is one of those rumors that is going to play out over time, we likely only have half of the information. Please keep your excitement in check until I have all of the information and can provide definitive answers.
I’m starting to feel that 2018 is going to be a fun year for Canon, more on that later.
