p.1 #1 · When do new lens announcements come out?


Is there a round of them expected in mid Feb.? I seem to remember reading that, but maybe it was wishful thinking.

Trying to decide whether to grab a 35L while rebates are on or wait to see what is announced. I would buy from B&S if I miss the rebates and there's not an updated 35L on the way by Spring time. I do have a good copy of the 35/2 to hold me over.

That is exactly what I'm thinking. Maybe I should just take one for the team and buy it now.

will the existing 35L get any worse with the announcement of a new one ?

if the current one is good value with the rebates then jump on it , anything new will cost quite a bit more.

and from my reasoning I would think the 35L would be at the back of a que for any new lenses. the last lenses to be updated in the wider primes were the 24L and the 14L . but both of their older versions were renowned under performers. the 35L is not an underperformer.

I just picked up the Bower 35 1.4 and have been amazed! Can't go wrong if you don't mind manual focus, which I happen to enjoy! If you want the Canon, I would at least wait a week. They do usually announce a lens or two when coming out with a new camera... It can't hurt to just see what it is, as long as you don't "need" it today.

Mid Februray Canon is expected to announce a new L. The lens is being used by one photographer on this forum who has said they cannot post pics until the NDA has passed.

Come on . The 200-400 has probably seen off any hopes of a mk2 100-400

Three weeks, actually, so you're outside the 2-week return period.

Of course you are right, Ian. At 3-4 times the price and maybe double the weight of the 100-400, bet they'll sell like hotcakes.

Problem (if you can call it that) is the recent ver. II lens improvements have been really good - ala TSE 24 II and 70-200 II. I like the version II Koolaid.
