Canon Lens Rumors

New IS Lenses? [CR1]

Now the claims start flowing
Received 3 emails in the last 10 minutes claiming to know which lenses are coming.

Canon will launch the 24-70 f/2.8L IS II and 70-200 f/2.8L IS II near the end of August.

Another Take
According to a reader, a pro sports photographer had told him to hold off on purchasing a 300 f/2.8L IS as well as the 500 f/4L IS.

I have a history dating back a fair ways stating we’d see an update to the big white lenses for the Olympics and World Cup.

I was told by an MLB photographer that Canon would be updating their big white lenses over the next “12-24 months”. That was in the fall of 2008.

Take #3
Could this confirm the new L macro rumor from a while back? An email and commenter think so.

CR’s Take
I have no info from credible sources yet, I should see some insight in the morning (EST). I need to really sleep though!

thanks for waking me Dave
