New fast primes
The often talked about 50 f/1.4 and 135 f/2 have appeared in a new patent this week. We've heard that a replacement to the 50 f/1.4 would come first. A new 135 f/2L is a desired lens if they put IS into the upgrade. We've also heard a new 85 f/1.2L with reduced weight and approved AF performance was also on the horizon.
