A new 50mm will be coming in 2013, as the 35 f/2 gets replaced with a new IS version. The EF 24-70 f/4L IS definitely coming, which we knew for sure. I'm willing to wager the pricing below is also not accurate. I probably shouldn't have posted unconfirmed information about these 2 lenses so quickly.
Below is some unconfirmed information in regards to price and weight of the new EF 24-70 f/4L IS, rate it as [CR1] for now.
- EF 24-70 f/4L IS $849 and weighing 545g
- EF 50 f/1.4 IS $799
As mentioned earlier, I'm confident about the new 24-70, but the 2nd lens, I'm not 100% sure on. There are so many coming down the pipeline.
Two New Lenses
We hear that Canon will announce two new lenses very shortly.
We're pretty sure one of them will be the EF 24-70 f/4L IS, still working out the second one. There are lots of candidates including the 14-24 f/2.8L, 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS, 50 f/1.4, 50 f/2 IS, 135 f/2L IS and the 35 f/1.4L II.
More to come…..
