Canon has introduced a pair of new EF-mount cinema prime lenses, the CN-E14mm T3.1 L F and CN-E135mm T2.2 L F.

All of Canon’s EF-mount cinema primes offer full frame coverage and meet 4K production standards. [click to continue…]
Canon has taken the wraps off a pair of new stabilized lens – the EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM and EF 35mm f/2 IS USM, priced at $1500 and $850, respectively. Both should be available in December 2012.

After the rumor about a 24-70mm f/2.8L IS lens from Canon a couple days ago, Canon Rumors is now tweaking that rumor with “reliable” info on a f/4 version of that lens. Apparently, the f/4 version of the lens is on the horizon and could be arriving soon.
Seems like an odd lens to add to the mix, particularly with the solid 24-105mm f/4L IS that’s been selling like hotcakes since its release. Of course, if the sharpness improvements are as substantial as the 24-70mm f/2.8L II were over the lens it replaced, a smaller and lighter lens might serve as a replacement and more directly compliment the popular 70-200mm lineup.
What would you think about a stabilized 24-70mm f/4L IS lens? What would be the right price point for you?
