We’re told that an internal presentation roadmap from Canon includes two “big white” lenses coming in 2018. The slide in question did not mention specific focal lengths, likely to help prevent what I’m typing right now.
One of the big white lenses could logically be the EF 600mm f/4 DO IS that Canon showed back at the 2015 Canon Expo.
The second of the two remains a mystery at this time. There has always been some rumblings about an updated EF 200mm f/2L IS and EF 800mm f/5.6L IS, but nothing has come to fruition.
2018 is a World Cup of football/soccer in Russia and the Olympic Winter Games in South Korea and Canon generally makes a professional gear splash for these events.
We also have Photokina to look forward to in September of 2018.
The previous release of “big whites” saw two releases in pairs. First the EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II & EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II came, followed by the EF 500mm f/4L IS II & EF 600mm f/4L IS II a few months later.
