Canon Working on EF-S 24mm STM Lens, And On A New USM Motor (C-USM)?

EF-S 24mm

EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM Lens

New rumors surfaced on the web.

Canon may announce an EF-S 24mm STM lens later this year, some time in the Summer 2014. No specs so far.

And it is murmured Canon is working on a new USM motor technology, called C-USM (Compact Ultrasonic Motor). The new C-USM motor is said to appear first on a 50mm lens, and could also be announced later this year.

Both are new rumors, take with a grain of salt.

    Compact USM…. hm… and I always thought that current USM is already compact. o_O

    Unless they plan to add it to some more pancake lenses….
    In either case though – I’d prefer to see Canon working on an equivalent to AF-D mode used by Sony in SLT – something to make camera focus between custom, pre-defined distances (depths). It’d be useful for both: filming with AF and sports photography (or actually: any kind of photography where you got an object moving between obstacles).

  • EF-S 24mm lens … now is about five years too late.
