That’s a great question and we are only getting very vague answers from people that know what’s coming.
- We’re told that the 3 lenses shown in the certification documents are going to be a “series”.
- The “series” of lenses has also been described to us as “high-end”.
If we go by the certifications, the three lenses in question are being manufactured at the Canon Opto SDN BHD factory in Malaysia. I cannot find any “high end” lenses in the Canon lineup that are made in Malaysia, please sound off in the forums if you know of any.
The same certification documents show that the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS II is being made at Canon’s Utsunomiya factory in Japan, which to my knowledge is the only place Canon L lenses are made, which is what we would call “high end”.
We have no information as to what “series” these 3 will fall under.
The announcement for these 4 lenses is expected the last week of August.
