| p.1 #1 · A question on new Canon lens design |
I was talking to my friends the other day. It went on to the discussion about the new design on Canon lenses. With the new design, the font of the focal length value of the newer lenses is different from the old ones. And minor things move here and there.
Anyway, there is one particular lens that stands out from the rest--the new 24-70/2.8L II. It doesn't have all the lens details above the red ring just like the rest. We all agreed that we first thought it's gonna be a new standard. But it's apparently not, as the newer 24-70/4L IS still has such details above the red ring. (Below shows a picture from LensRentals.com.)
That got me thinking--why different? Does it make it cheaper? Lighter because it has less parts? Does Canon want this lens to stand out from the rest? Or they simply forgot?
What do you think?
