From a usually solid source. I´m told to expect an update to the 17-40 sometime in 2009. The current lens a cash cow for Canon and any replacement is sure to be a hot seller. The main purpose for the upgrade is to improve full frame performance. The replacement will not have IS.



  1. Is there an update for the 17-40 f/4 II? 2009 is almost over I never heard anything about this rumor. Are we expecting this to come at 2010? or is this just another rumor.

    Sorry to bump an old thread.

    Thank you!

  2. it’s 2010…anyway did he mean that the replacement for this lens wld be the 14-24 f/2.8? cuz i dun see why canon will produce this new lens plus a mk II version of 17-40…
