I and others on the web have been told that Canon may announce a new 35mm “L” lens later this year, possibly before Fall 2015. While we do not have any specs or other information, I was told that some prototypes are already out in the wild undergoing testing. I strongly suppose this will be a f/1.4 lens, also because we had some patents filed by Canon pointing in this direction (1 | 2).
Amazon Lighting Deal: Rokinon 35mm T1.5 Aspherical Wide Angle Cine Lens on sale for $361.99 (compare to $449).
- 35mm fixed focal length; t/1.5-22 aperture range; Manual focus
- Features the same outstanding optical quality as the highly rated Rokinon 35mm f/1.4 lens
- Features de-clicked aperture to reduce noise and to allow more specific manual aperture settings
- Lens is follow focus compatible to enable the user to focus and use the aperture ring without interrupting video shooting
- Includes front and rear lens caps, removable hood, lens pouch, instruction manual and 1 year Rokinon warranty
The various pictures focus on specific features of the lens, such as sharpness, color rendition, chromatic aberration, bokeh, auto-focus performance, flaring and ghosting, and so on. The things he liked most:
- The highly versatile 35mm focal length
- Lightweight construction
- Excellent image quality
- Image stabilization
- Fun to shoot with
- Fast and accurate autofocus
- Accurate color
- Max aperture of f/2
- Close minimum focusing distance
- Good bokeh
In the conclusion he writes:
In my opinion, this lens is going to be tough to beat. On full-frame cameras, the 35mm focal length is perfect. For crop sensor cameras, this lens offers a perspective closer to 50mm. Either way, you’re getting a well-built, lightweight lens with exceptional image quality and impressive image stabilization.
