More reports of what’s coming in glass
We’ve already seen information for 2 lenses that are highly anticipated as well as expected.

The ever popular EF 24-70 f/2.8L IS  and EF 60 f/2.8 IS Macro .

There is a report today at NL of an EF 200 f/4L IS Macro coming down the immediate pipe as well.

It would make a lot of sense to have the entire macro lineup redone (outside of the 50 compact Macro). That’ll be Canon set for the next 10 years.

  1. Ass he may be, but his point is valid. In Feb, 2009 this was about to be released. In February, 2010 this lens was a CR2 ‘take it to the bank,’ it’s going to be announced next week release (we got printers announced instead).

    So here we are in July, and it still has not been announced.

    Canon charges $500 more for the 70-200 f/4 IS than the non-IS, and the difference for the f/2.8 was similar prior to the Mk II. Canon has charged up to $500 more for a Mk II which offered substantial improvements over the Mk I.

    *IF* they ever release this lens, I’d bet $600 more than for the non-IS version – so, I’d guess $1900. But like I said… *IF*.

  2. I think he was asking for our opinions on how much the new 24-70 might be. But I understand some of us canon rumors readers are just way too smart to be bothered with figuring out what someone actually means. You should stop reading this blog and leave us cretins alone so you can be a happier person.

    That being said, this stupid lens seems like it’s been rumored for a long time. At least the 100-400 is still just firmly in shooters’ wish lists and imaginations. But the 24-70 IS was a sure think for over a year. I hope it does come out soon… and I hope it doesn’t have the price hikes like the new versions of the 70-200 and 100 macro had.
