Canon EF 16-600mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens Exists And Is Shipping

No rumor surfaced and no specs leaked, but here is the proof that the lens is real! Canon surprised all with a brand new lens no one was expecting, the EF 16-600 f/2.8L IS USM lens. A lens that should cover all your focusing needs, going from ultra wide angle to super telephoto zoom with a constant f/2.8. No pre-order options so far.

    What, no built-in 1.4X TC? That’s IT! I’m never buying Canon again!

  • roger48

    It is not an April fool joke. I have one on order for delivery next week and it only cost £300,000! Quite ba bargain I thought.

    If you read it on the internet then it must be true.

  • Dan

    Canon should have just saved the T5i announcement for today. It would have fit right in.

    • peevee

      They tried to focus their marketing efforts for T5i on April 1st, but it got frontfocused.

    You can even see the “edits” around the “6” of 600… 😛

  • Swaranjeet

    Well there is certainly a bag available at B&H to carry it.
    Have a look

    Yup.. it is the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8L USM box, photoshopped, the lens box should me much bigger for a telephoto lens, also you can check the accessories mentioned on the box down..

    1. Canon LP1319 Soft Lens Case for 16-35mm f/2.8L USM
    2. Canon EW-83E Lens Hood for the 16-35mm f/2.8L USM the 17-40mm f/4L USM and other similar lenses

    Also it is almost irrelevant to make such lens with both so different uses, Wide Angle and a Telephoto in the same lens, even if they will make it with the 2.8f.. it will cost the buyer over 15.000$ US Dollars (At least)…
