Cheap prime!
The story goes a US tech rep said Canon was going to be putting out a lens to compete with Nikon's popular 35 f/1.8 lens.

I've heard it from two places, one saying 30mm and the other 35mm.

It could be time for some new affordable primes.

  1. I should add that 35mm is a poor choice on EF-S. Look at how popular 55 and 58mm were on 135 once shorter “normal” lengths became available.

  2. same here — the Sigma 30/1.4 is the only non-Canon lens I have, for lack of decent alternatives (the IQ of the 28/1.8 is not comparable and it’s a 1.8 instead of 1.4, and the 35/1.4 is in another price league).
