Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L Listed Again On Canon Germany’s Website

61fTvIGAEcS._SL1500_

This morning I reported that the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L lens was no longer listed on Canon Germany’s website.

Now it is listed again. I’ve speculated that the fact the lens was no longer listed could mean that a replacement could be come in the next time. This made sense since rumors suggest we will see many new Canon lenses at Photokina 2014. But since it is listed again it was probably nothing more than a mistake.

61fTvIGAEcS._SL1500_

It appears that since a few days the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L lens is no longer listed on Canon Germany’s website. Just a mistake or a sign for a replacement coming soon?

The EF 50mm f/1.2L was introduced in 2001.

Typo or Inadvertent Leak? EF 50mm f/1.2 II Lens Gets Mentioned By Canon

5012lii-575x482

Canon Professional Network published a video by Philip Bloom about the performance of Dual Pixel Auto-Focus on the Canon C100. In the video an EF 50mm f/1.2 II lens is mentioned. A typo or did Canon’s marketing department inadvertently leak the replacement for the EF 50mm f/1.2L?

Watch the video at CPN’s website.

Deal: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II (Nifty Fifty) – $102

Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

 

Top Rated Plus eBay seller 6ave (99.4% positive ratings) has the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens, also known as the “nifty fifty”, on sale for $102. Compare to $125. Free shipping in the US.

Though this is an inexpensive lens, and a lens made entirely out of industrial plastics (except for the optics), it is well-regarded for the bright aperture and the surprising (given the price) optical performance. In other words: That’s a lens every Canon shooter should have in his or hers bag, and at that price it is a no brainer.

More Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art Real-World Sample Pics (dpreview)

Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art

Dpreview published a set of 41 real-world sample pics shot with the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens. Interestingly, the Sigma was used with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II (yes, not Mark III). Seems weird to me considering the exceptional optical performance of the Sigma.

The hot news of the day is DxOMark’s test of the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art lens, and how it compares to the four times pricier Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 (this time using an EOS Mark III). Well, the Sigma comes seriously close to the Zeiss.

Pre-orders for the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 DG HSM can be made at B&H Photo and Adorama.
