Canon U.S.A. Introduces New Canon EF 35mm F/1.4L II USM Lens

New L-Series Lens is First to Feature Canon’s Proprietary Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics – That Achieves a Higher Level of Chromatic Aberration Correction For Superb Image Quality

MELVILLE, N.Y., August 27, 2015 – Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today introduced the new EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM lens for EOS system cameras – a wide-angle fixed-focal-length Canon EF lens that is the world’s first* to utilize the Company’s newly-developed and exclusive Blue Spectrum Refractive Optics (BR Optics). This new optical technology utilizes organic material newly developed by Canon to achieve a higher level of chromatic aberration correction than other existing technologies resulting in outstanding high-quality imaging performance.

More tidbits about the upcoming Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II lens leaked at Digicame Info.

  • The price of the EF 35mm f/1.4L II will be around 275,000 Yen (that’s $2,300, I think the lens will cost around $2,000)
  • Will be released in Japan in mid October 2015
  • The lens uses Blue Spectrum Refractive optics (BR) to obtain low chromatic aberration. BR elements greatly refract the light in the short wavelength region
  • Chromatic aberration is corrected by significantly refracting the particular wavelength range
  • The lens has a new, more advanced weather sealing
  • The lens is more resistant to impacts

Another set of specs leaked yesterday. The Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II will be announced before the end of August, most likely together with the EF-M 15-45mm f/3-5-6.3 IS STM lens and the Rebel SL2. Stay tuned on Canon Watch!

Canon EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM and EF 35mm f/1.4L Mark II coming very soon [CW4]

novocert_canon_ef35f14ii_ef-m15-45-2

Russian certification authority Novocert has registration document for two Canon lenses: the already rumored EF 35mm f/1.4L Mark II, and a lens for the EOS M system, the EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM. The latter never surfaced in a rumor.

The EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM could be Canon’s next kit lens for the EOS M series cameras. Back in May we had a rumor pointing in this direction, though an 18-55mm IS STM Mark II lens was then mentioned as the new kit lens. However, I would be surprised if the EF-M 15-45mm is not going to be the next EOS M kit lens. Though, an f/6.3 at the telephoto end is a bit disappointing.

The announcement of both lenses should be matter of weeks. In the past, states Digicame Info, the event of a registration at a certification authority usually anticipated the announcement for a few weeks. So, most likely these are the two lenses that will be announced August 14, 2015.
