Canon recently announced the EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III and EF 600mm f/4L IS III, two super telephoto lenses that they shaved a lot of weight off of when compared to the predecessors, with weight savings at more than 25% and 20% respectively.
We’re told that the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II and EF 500mm f/4L IS II will get a similar weight savings treatment in mid to late 2019. Do not expect the same level of weight reduction, as those two lenses are significantly lighter than their 400mm and 600mm counterparts.
Rumors of a new EF 200mm f/2L IS and EF 800mm f/5.6L IS have been quiet for a long time, and there’s nothing pointing to a replacement for either of these lenses in the next 12 months.
