Peace unto all ye Canon, Nikon & Sony shooters

Im not shure that "length of the lens" means the physical length of the real lens assembly - I think it is the length between front surface and the image plane. The values you have calculated are in the region of the flange-sensorplane-distance ...dilbert said:The mechanics are interesting.
The 50/1.4 is 37mm longer than the current 50/1.4.
The 85/1.8 is 45mm longer than the current 85/1.8.
That'll change how well they fit in various people's camera bags but I suppose this is what's required to add image stabilisation to each of these lenses.
I agree with DS... "If" Canon produces a 135mm f/1.8 with IS it will have a hefty price based on their current upgrade pricing policies... I think a 135mm f/2 IS is more realistic and even that will carry a heavy price for admittance. No doubt! I do not own the current 135mm, but most photographers wax poetic about its abilities...so if an update is made I would expect conservative Canon to make it an incremental update, nothing big and splashy....but ya never know.distant.star said:
Actually I forgot to put sarcasm quotes referring to RLphoto's remark. He repeatedly mentioned in other threads that he is dreaming / wishing for a 135mm f/1.8tron said:
