New rumors suggest that an update to the popular Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM could be getting an update soon. The update is rumored to include a floating element like the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM and solve the focus shift problem from the current generation that is reported by some.
B&H has the new Rokinon 50mm f/1.4 AS IF UMC lens in stock and shipping. The lens is priced at $399 and is available for Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Sony A and Sony E mounts. Note that the Sony E mount version is not listed as in stock yet. It ships with free expedited shipping. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
