Prime time
Can we expect 2 new Canon L primes in the fall? According to an email this morning the 35L and 135L will both receive upgrades.

Both lenses will incorporate new build design and coatings. We should see them for the fall I'm told.

There is a new long focal range macro lens being developed with IS. “It would be in the 180mm to 200mm range.”

Big White Lenses
The same source claims no new super telelphoto primes will be launched. However, new 300mm, 400mm, 500mm & 600mm lenses will be tested in Vancouver for the 2010 games and in South Africa for the World Cup.

CR's Take
The 35L is definately coming, I think with a 1Ds4 launch. I don' think we'd see a 135L II at the same time.

I do find the testing of the big white lenses to be logical. I can't see Canon launching in the fall and producing enough to meet the demand.
