Canon EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS replacement coming this year? [CW3]

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…!

Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will ship mid September, launching at €3,799 in Europe and $3,299 in USA [CW4]

Eos 5d Mark Iv

Update: I downgrade the US price rumor to CW3, could be $3,499.

New bits about the upcoming Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

I’ve been told (thanks) that the EOS 5D Mark IV will start shipping in the mid of September 2016. Launch price should be €3,799 in Europe and $3,299 in the USA. Please note that I am not 100% sure about the US price, could also be $3,499. Maybe $3,499 is more likely.

No price hint for the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II USM and EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III USM lenses. The EF 24-105mm will most likely start to ship with the EOS 5D Mark IV (it’s a new kit option), while the EF 16-35mm may be seen a bit later, probably in October.

Canon is set to make a big announcement on August 25, 2016. The following gear (and new EOS 7D Mark II kits) will be announced to the world:
