Canon Lens Rumors

Lenses [CR2]

From a regular (50 f/1.4)
I’m told for certain that a new 50 f/1.4 is coming this summer from Canon.

It will retail in the $699 USD range.

New Lens
The same source says there will be one new lens from Canon this summer/fall that is not a replacement of anything current. He didn’t have specs at the present time.

Teleconverters
There are new teleconverters being tested at the World Cup I’m told. No word on a release timeframe.

  1. does anyone think a 50mm 1.4II will drive down the used-market price of the current 50mm 1.4?

  2. Eventually, it probably will. Looking at the recent release of the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II, once that lens came out at a significant premium over the MkI, retailers started selling the MkI version at or near list price, so used prices actually went UP in parallel.
