We reported in mid July that Canon would be announcing a series of three lenses, though we weren’t sure what “series” meant. Now we’re told that the three new lenses would be tilt-shift lenses and will be announced at the end of August 2017.
While we’re now very confident that three new tilt-shift lenses are coming, we’re a little less confident about their announcement time. As it sits today, we think they’re coming at the end of August alongside the EF 85mm f/1.4L IS and the EOS M10 replacement (EOS M20?).
We’re not sure of the focal length of these three new tilt-shit lenses, but as soon as we find out, we’ll let you know. The TS-E 45mm f/2.8 and TS-E 90mm f/2.8 were both announced in April 1991, so they are obvious candidates for replacement (though not confirmed as of yet). What will the third one be? I’d love to see a tilt-shift macro, but I have no reason to believe at this time that one is coming.
More to come…
