Some new ideas as to what lenses Canon will announce for Photokina in a couple of weeks.
First up an EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM. We were told about this one a few days ago, and it may be in pancake form and an EF-S mount, which makes a bit more sense. The second lens mentioned is a 24-105 f/3.5-5.6 IS STM, which we were told about at the same time as the pancake, and it was previously mentioned that a 6D focused full frame non L zoom would be coming, though at that time the focal length was incorrect. The third lens is a new EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II, which would be a great lens to see and we had no previous information that it was coming. It’s good to see the DO patents amount to a new DO product.
There is no 100-400 replacement or ultrawide f/2.8L zoom being announced for Photokina. A full frame ultrawide zoom at the same time as the EOS 7D Mark II doesn’t make a lot of sense, but I think a new 100-400 definitely would. Here’s hoping it does indeed come this year.
EOS 7D Mark II Availability
We’re told that the EOS 7D Mark II won’t be immediately available, but will most likely reach market by the end of October this year.
Large Sensor PowerShot
I also added a [CR3] to the 1″ sensor PowerShot camera rumor from a few days ago. This camera is indeed coming and will be about the size of the “S” series camera.
