CR’s Take
That’s all that seems to be out there right now. I’ve reported on facebook before that there would be a new lens coming that isn’t a replacement to anything currently in the lineup. I’m going to assume that will be the 14-24.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and please don’t take it as fact. There’s an obvious lens that would complete the trifecta of new zooms.

EF 24-70 f/2.8L IS II

Still searching for a patent. It would be nice to see all 3 launched at once. Canon’s recent history seems to show they max out at launching 2 L’s at a time. Correct me if I’m wrong.

2010 may be a good year for Canon zoom fans.

  1. No way it will be an EF-S – this baby will be sporting a red stripe and along the same lines as Nikon’s, with the built-in bikini hood and crystal ball element. It’s going to be awesome.

  2. Does anyone know if there’s a typical amount of time in between a patent filing and product release for Canon’s lenses?

    I admit…I’m just hungry for some rumors (and am a bit disappointed that there wasn’t a filing for a 24-70 IS).
