Canon has launched a new lens rebate program for dozens of lenses. When you combine the instant rebates with the mail-in rebates, it results in some pretty significant savings. [Read more…]
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.
A recently-published patent filing reveals a Canon 28mm f/1.4 lens possibly in the works. There is no 28mm fast L lens in Canon’s line-up so that would be a nice addition to the line to slot in between the EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM and the EF 35mm f/1.4L USM lenses.
Of course, a patent filing doesn’t necessarily mean a lens is imminent but these filings have been a pretty good barometer for lenses in the past. Note that this patent was filed in 2014 and just published this month.
