Several companies have released affordable super-telephoto zoom lenses recently (like the Nikon 200-500mm, Sigma 150-600mm & Tamron 150-600mm) and it looks like Canon may be adding to the mix. Canon Rumors reports that it has info from a reliable source of a Canon EF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS lens in development.
The lens may not be an “L” lens and, thus, wouldn’t necessarily compete with the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens. Accordingly, the lens is also expected to be offered at a lower price point than the 100-400mm.
No additional rumors on pricing or release dates; however, the 200-600mm lens is expected sometime this year.

Canon Rumors received a tip that a new 50mm lens is coming soon. While there are no specifics as to whether it is a replacement for the current 50mm f/1.4 or 50mm f/1.2 lens, the EF 50mm f/1.4 USM lens is over 30 years old and is ripe for replacement.
Canon Rumors rates this as a credible rumor and it’s certainly a needed replacement. So, hopefully, we’ll see something sooner rather than later.

The Canon EOS C500 4K cinema camera has dropped from $15,999 to $9,999, which is a solid price considering that it launched for $30,000 in 2012 and it is a 10-bit 4K RAW camera that is almost ready to shoot out of the box.
Sure, Canon is rumored to launch a new EOS Cinema camera that shoots 8K video around NAB next month, but it won’t be under $10K and it likely won’t be on shelves for a few months anyway. Check out the discounted EOS C500 in EF or PL mounts here at B&H Photo.
