24-70 f/2.8L IS
A couple of people have reported to seeing the lens in the wild. One “witness” said the lens hood was very different.

As with most of these sightings, no pics are available.

A 35 f/1.8 is being reported again. NL has posted about it. We posted about it a while ago here and here.

T1/2000D Announcement
We were burned on this one! No T1/2000D as of yet. I have no CR3 sources piping up about such an announcement.

One person commented that perhaps Canon is preparing an announcement with a little more fanfare.

  1. ‘One “witness” said the lens hood was very different.’

    That would be enough for someone to conclude the poor guy cannot tell between a 24-105mm and a 24-70mm LOL. What a load of crap!

  2. hey! give the poor witness a break! he was dreaming in a hot weather so he couldn’t tell for sure ! >_>

  3. Poor Canon Lovers from India on

    Dear Canon, it’s an open letter to you. It’s a matter of fact Canon lacks a quality yet pocket friendly walk around EF-S lens (something between 17-105 range, though you have made two good yet cheap lenses i.e. 18-55 IS and 55-250 IS. But you can not say 18-55 range is good for walk around purpose and again 55-250 lacks wide angle part. You have your 17-85 IS USM in arsenal.. but its optically very mediocre. Your arch rival and other rivals are coming up with very good walk around solutions,optically very competitive yet not so high priced. It’s true in third world countries in Asia and Africa and South-America, you have a huge customer base who use DSLRs but not maximum of them specially beginners, amateurs and serious-amateurs can not afford to buy your very best L-series lenses. We are in urgent need of an optically potent EF-S walk-around lens and of course which must not be ridiculously higher priced. It’s the call of this hour from this part of Canon world!!!
