Two Canon lenses and a flash show up at certification authority (EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS?)

Canon Rumors

Nokishita spotted some more unreleased Canon gear that has been registered at a certification authority.

The list:

  • Interchangeable lens 1
    • SKU: 2309C005AA
    • made in Japan
  • Interchangeable lens 2
    • SKU: 2439C005AA
    • made in Japan?
  • DS 401141
    • Electronic flash
    • SKU: 1757C003

It appears a fact that at least one of the lenses above is manufactured in Japan, which usually means the Utsunomiya factory. This factory produces Canon’s “L”-grade lenses. One of the listed lenses may be the long rumored EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS, i.e. Canon’s first image stabilised 24-70mm f/2.8 lens. Another lens that is rumored since a while is he Canon EF 135mm f/2L IS. However, I consider the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS more likely to be announced, since Canon still doesn’t have an image stabilised 24-70mm f/2.8L lens.

I expect both lenses to be announced before end of the year. We’ll see soon, so stay tuned.

A new Canon EF 50mm f/1.4L lens coming in 2018, eventually? [CW2]

A new EF 50mm f/1.4 lens coming in 2018?

A long running rumor got a fresh up. It’s about a new EF 50mm “L” lens.

Two prototypes of this lens are now rumored to undergo testing, one of them being the EF 50mm f/1.4L ISand the other beng unknown. This lens likely shares some of the design and technology that have gone into the new EF 85mm f/1.4L IS.

A candidate announcement date for the new EF 50mm lenses is sometimes in the first half of 2018.

Apparently, a previous prototype of the lens was discarded because Canon now has new technology to use for the design of the lens.

Take it with a huge grain of salt.
