Canon 24mm, 24-105mm and 400mm Lenses Rumored for Photokina

Canon 400mm DO IS USM

Recent rumors suggest that Canon will unveil three new lenses at Photokina 2014. Those lenses are believed to be the following.

  • EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM
  • EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM
  • EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM

The 24mm is rumored to be a pancake-sized lens that is probably along the size and performance of the EF 40mm f/2.8 STM but just an EF-S lens. The 24-105mm would be a nice lens to package as a kit with the Canon 6D or any other low-end, full frame DSLR that comes out in the future. And, the 400mm DO lens will replace the current EF 400mm f/4 DO IS USM model with improved optical performance.

    I’m not certain I understand the 24-105 f/3.5-5.6, when there is the 24-105 f/4. Unless, and I’m guessing this is the reason, it’s not a L-grade lens.

    Hope the 24mm pancake price is decent – the 40mm was a bit high at launch and wasn’t really “worth it” until a few months later when the used market picked up. Then the canon refurbs were priced really well to compete. That’s when I picked up. It’s a cool lens – light and compact, and the STM is quieter than the 18-135 for sure. Would absolutely use a 24mm more often than the 40mm on EFS.
