More rumors are coming in about something big in the lens department for Canon. Specifically, that an announcement would come in September and it is a “big deal.”
I’ve continued to hear churnings about the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS and EF 28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS replacements since this past spring. If there is truth to this latest rumor, I would expect to see one or both of those as the “big deal” next month. I’m not confident that an exact replacement (or Mark II version) of these lenses would show up, but something that would serve as a replacement in spirit. Some of the features that could be on the chopping block are the push/pull design and perhaps a faster variable aperture range.
