No word on when the lens would be coming but sooner rather than later is likely. Canon has a habit of introducing professional lenses in the November-ish time frame, so that wouldn’t be a total shocker to see such a lens then.
Pentax posted a new K-mount lens line up that shows a roadmap for upcoming lenses with a spot for a new 70-200mm zoom lens. Presumably, this would be a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens, which is currently not covered in Pentax’s digital lens lineup. Of course, the DA 50-135mm f/2.8 ED lens covers this gap because all of Pentax’s DSLRs are APS-C camera.
Stretching the logic a bit further forces us to wonder whether or not a 70-200mm lens in the roadmap means that a Pentax full frame camera might finally make its way to market.

A lens missing from Nikon’s lineup recently appeared in a published patent application at the USPTO. Canon’s 70-200mm f/4L and 70-200mm f/4L IS lenses have been popular lenses over the past few years. The original f/4L was so popular that Canon decided to make an IS version and keep both lenses in the lineup.
Now, it looks like Nikon will be jumping on this popular lens size… [Read more…]
