Canon to announce soon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens, and a “Power Zoom Adapter”

EF-S 18-135mm IS STM

Another leak of yesterday suggest Canon may soon release the third iteration of its EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens. With a small surprise: it appears Canon is switching from STM to USM motor. This may be the next kit lens, and it first appearance might be with the EOS 80D.

And what about the “Power Zoom Adapter”? Could this be a device to enable electric zooming on select Canon lenses?

Stay tuned for more…
