The lenses keep on coming
I received some pretty good detail about a new EF 70-200 f/4L IS that may be announced in the next month.

The first version of this lens is terrific, and for a while outperformed the 2.8 IS counterpart (other than light gathering ability).

Some points on the reported new lens.

  • It will include a newer version of the Canon fluorine coating reducing light scatter within the lens.
  • The new coating will drastically increase the scratch resistance on the front element.
  • The lens will be fully metal, besides the zoom and focus rings.
  • The image quality is supposed to be the best as far as Canon zooms go (like version 1 was).
  • Mid January announcement.
We have been told that Canon will be updating a lot of current lenses in 2012.
