We're told that the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II is “done” and ready for production. An announcement date is unknown as Canon is still playing catch-up on some other in demand lenses such as the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II.


  • Dust & Weather Sealing
  • All the latest coatings
  • Longer than the current version
  • Smaller diameter than the current version
  • Smaller filter thread
  • New hood design
  • Unknown weight

I think a fall announcement is likely, and I don't expect such a lens to be announced alongside a camera body.

On a side note. I'm heading to Chicago this weekend and will be using the current EF 35mm f/1.4L exclusively on the EOS 5DS.
