Rumor: New Canon Lenses Around The Corner?

New Canon lenses rumor tidbits. Canon Rumors got another confirmation that a Canon EF 800 f/5.6L IS II lens is out there getting tested. It is not ready for the market and it is suggested that Canon will not announce it before Nikon announced its own 800mm lens. Another lens was mentioned, the EF 200 f/2L IS, also said to be far from being announced. Finally, one of CR’s sources says that he or she tested an ultra-wide zoom on an EOS-1D Xs (which, supposedly, is the big megapixel DSLR rumors say Canon is working on).

But the Canon lens rumor-mill is also yielding some tidbits about an EF 135mm f/2L replacement. The talk is about an EF 135mm f/2L prototype with image stabilization. Replacement of the current EF 135mm may be around the corner.

It appears as if there are definitely coming new lenses before the end of 2012, some NDAs (non disclosure agreement) should be over by the end of the month.
