Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L No Longer Listed On Canon Germany Site

61fTvIGAEcS._SL1500_

It appears that since a few days the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L lens is no longer listed on Canon Germany’s website. Just a mistake or a sign for a replacement coming soon?

The EF 50mm f/1.2L was introduced in 2001.

Canon Set To Announce A Lot Of Products For Photokina (?)

10408483_797938930236385_4798802371067307989_n

I have been told (thanks) that Canon will announce many new products for Photokina. Not only the replacement for the EOS 7D, but also a bunch of lenses. The 7D replacement is said to come with a lot of high-end features, and again a “new sensor technology” was mentioned.

The rumor appears to be pretty plausible, others also got similar information. See also the teaser by Canon India, which appears to point to the replacement for the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS lens, or at least for a new lens (pic above).

It’s getting hot, we will see a lot of leaks in the next weeks. Stay tuned…

Canon India Teaser For “Something Big” That’s Coming

10408483_797938930236385_4798802371067307989_n

Thanks Karol

This teaser just showed up on Canon India’s Facebook page: “Get your camera ready, something BIG is coming”.

Maybe a lens? If we should “get our camera ready” then a lens is a possible candidate. Maybe the long rumored EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens?

What do you think?
