I’ve been sent info about an updated EF 135 f/2L. The source says we can expect it to get IS. It’ll either be f/2 or f/1.8. Both prototypes exist.

CR1 for now.

This is the first I’ve heard of such an update.

There’s a 60D image making its way around the web. I haven’t posted it because it looks exactly like 50D pictures that are out there.

It’s extremely rare to see Canon promotional photos before a camera is released.

  1. Jesus surely was a REAL man, not the weak, emaciated person many artists have painted, but I don’t think he would use primes….. Surely a waterproof compact would be better for cross water walks, or maybe a micro 4/3rds would better suit the lifestyle of a travelling preacher?

  2. The 77mm front filter thread can easily accomodate a f1.8 design, i think Sony already have one in their line up.
    Adding a 4 stop IS unit really would be a very nice cherry ontop of an already very sweet lens.

    The current model seems very weather resistant, I’ve gotten mine wet a number of times with no issues. I’m sure Canon would add full weather sealing as a matter of modern design.

    The current f2.0 version blows away the 70-200/2.8 IS L with ease….I just hope the new version will be in the same league.

  3. I have both the 135L and the 70-200/4 IS L and they are both amazing lenses but very different. If I want slim DOF or differential focus, the 135L sings like a black bird. If I want a small, sharp and versatile travel tele, then the 70-200/f4 IS L has no equal.
    The current 135L is excellent, but it’s bokeh can get harsh if you stop down to f2.8. Wide open, it’s a stunner. Plus it’s due for an upgrade….Sony has eclipsed it with an f1.8 design.
