Latest Canon Rumors (new 50mm f/1.4 with IS and EOS 7D II)

FacebookTwitterStumbleUponShare

The rumors are reported by Northlight Images.

About the EOS 7D Mark II they report that two different dealer sources said that

[…] the 7D2 is being actively positioned against an upcoming D400 from Nikon and will be announced around the same time along with new lenses (the 50/1.4 should join the new range of IS primes for example)

Yes, and there should be soon a new 50mm f/1.4 lens with added image stabilization. The actual one (which still is an outstanding lens) dates back to 1993. NL writes

As part of Canon's revamp of their prime lens range, expect a replacement for the […] 50/1.4, with added image stabilisation next year

New Canon 50mm To Be Announced Soon? (may have IS)

A new rumor about a possible imminent announcement of a new Canon 50mm lens. No mention of the mount type (previously EF-M was rumored). Canon Rumors got

[…] word from two different sources that a new 50mm lens would be on the way “soon”. One person suggested it would “probably” have IS. No mention of aperture, but judging by past mentions of a new 50mm, it would be a replacement for the near ancient 50mm f/1.4.

The 50mm could be announced along with the new EF 24-70mm f/4L, which is also said to have image stabilization.

[Rumor] Canon Working On A New 50mm f/1.8 IS?

A new rumor surfaced, saying Canon is working on a replacement for its 50mm f/1.4 USM lens:

A purported replacement to the EF 50 f/1.4 was mentioned today in the form of an EF 50 f/1.8 IS. The lens would be smaller than the current 50 f/1.4. There is no imminent announcement of such a lens, but Canon is working to replace the 50 f/1.4 sometime in the next year. The current 50 f/1.8 would remain in the lineup.

Sounds plausible to me.
