Prior to the release of the latest Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II lens, there were rumors that a prototype of a version with Canon’s Image Stabilization was undergoing testing. Then, the new lens came along, it didn’t have IS, and word of any kind of possible replacement with image stabilization died out.
A recently published Canon patent document reveals that Canon has, in fact, developed such a lens. [click to continue…]
Remember when the rumors of the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 lens started to churn? There was a lot of disbelief.
Then, the lens launched and people wanted a full frame version of the lens… Well, it looks like Sigma may be answering those cries with a 24-70mm f/2 (again, I say “F/2″) lens. [click to continue…]
The Canon 24-70mm f/4L IS USM appears to have received another $100 price drop. It was originally selling for $1,499 until it received a $100 price drop earlier this month. Now, it is showing up for $1,299 here at B&H Photo.
I suspect that Canon has had a hard time moving these at $1,500 a pop when the long-time favorite EF 24-105mm f/4L IS zoom is available for $1,149 retail and they’re always available refurbished for under $1000. In fact, right now, the Canon Store has a sale on refurb 24-105mm units at under $800. [click to continue…]
The Canon EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM lens just got a $100 price drop and now runs $1399 (previously $1499). Check it out at B&H Photo, Adorama or Amazon.com.
