Canon is rumored to announce soon a new 50mm lens. The question is: what kind of 50mm lens, and which of the Canon 50mm lenses will get replaced?
The rumor suggests that despite what you may think, it might not be the EF 50mm f/1.4 that gets replaced but the EF 50mm f/1.2L (released in 2001). Honestly, I do not know which one may get replaced. The EF 50mm f/1.4 appears to be the obvious candidate but anything is possible, especially since Sigma introduced their outstanding 50mm f/1.4 lens. It may also be possible that Canon will feature STM or Nano USM technology on a new 50mm lens.
Stay tuned…[via Canon Rumors]
