Canon Set To Announce New Lenses Very Soon (EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM, EF 24-105mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM, EF 400mm F4 DO IS II USM)
Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS
Digicame (translated) posted what I am not shy to define as the first reliable rumor on what Canon is going to announce at Photokina 2014. Yes, these lenses are going to be announced at Photokina 2014!
- EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM
- EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
- EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM
The EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM was previously rumored to be an EF lens, instead it is an EF-S lens. Not yet sure if it will be a pancake lens.
The EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM is aimed at full-frame shooters, who will soon enjoy the benefits of the STM technology for their video shooting. This lens will probably be the next kit lens for the 6D. It will for sure be cheaper than an “L” grade lens. No one saw this lens come.
Stay tuned, I am sure pictures will follow soon.

I have been told that Canon might announce a new Speedlite for Photokina 2014. The Speedlite that might get substituted could be the 430EX II (introduced in 2007). No more information nor specs, unfortunately.
And there were various mentions that Canon might eventually announce the Powershot SX60 HS IS for Photokina 2014, the long overdue replacement for the popular Powershot SX50 HS IS (price & specs). The SX60 HS is rumored since a while. It was rumored to be announced in Spring, then in Summer 2014, and now the rumors point to Photokina 2014. So far no rumor got it right I got no specs this time. Rumors in the past suggested a 60x zoom (with some specs), then a 100x zoom (there is a patent pointing in this direction). A zoom beyond 60x seems plausible to me.
New source(s), take everything with a grain of salt, as usual.
