A possible replacement for the Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS gets another mention. The Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS II is said to be the “first Canon lens with an LCD display built-in” but it is not clear yet “what information will be present on the digital display“. The lens is rumored to feature Nano USM and Canon’s latest image stabilisation technology.
I have to say that this rumor comes a bit as a surprise to me. I (and others) always thought the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS was the replacement for the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS. It’s true that the former is an “L” lens and the latter is not. However, the non-L EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS has some “L”-lens elements, and hence it sounded plausible to consider the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS as the replacement for the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS.
Stay tuned…![Digicame-Info via Canon Rumors]
