Two emails today telling me to expect a new EF 50mm f/1.4 II USM to be announced alongside the new Rebel. One of them went as far as to say it’d be image stabilized.
I don’t for a second believe the lens will get IS’d.
I know the 50 f/1.4 has been backordered for a couple of months at a few places in Canada. However, Canon doesn’t appear to be stocking much in Canada at the moment and everything is backordered. Two months is a long time though.
