New Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II rumors surfaced. The replacement for the EF 35mm f/1.4L could be announced within the next 6 months. The new EF 35mm f/1.4L II is said to feature the latest coating technologies developed by Canon. Being an “L” lens it will obviously be weather sealed.

A smaller filter thread is also rumored, and the EF 35mm f/1.4L II may be a bit longer and bigger than its predecessor. According to the rumor, first samples are undergoing testing by select photographers. No announcement date is suggested. I guess the Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L Mark II will be announced in Fall 2015.
