2009 PMA Canon Rumors

Canon Rumors lists a few things that would interest me (in order of importance):

  • EF 24-70 f/2.7L II IS - I have the current 24-70 and it may be a little soft, and the addition of IS would be handy. More handy than without it, anyway.
  • EF 100-400 f/4-5.6L II IS - I have the 300 f/2.8L IS and the 70-200 f/2.8L IS, but a general purpose zoom would be great when my 70-200 isn't long enough and I need a little zoom (ruling out the 300).
  • EF 50 f/1.4 II - I have the current one. It works but there are some small things that could be improved upon.
  • TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II - I'm mildly interested in a T-S lens as well, and there are rumors a new 24mm and/or another focal length will be announced.

All but the TS-E are listed as "Possible" (with the TS-E as "Most Likely"), but I don't know if I'd even rank them that high. People have been waiting for those lenses for quite awhile now, and 90% of "rumors" are actually just people letting their wishful thinking color some snippet of info to mean that what they want is coming true.

  1. But we really want to know is what it has to do with users' email habits!

  2. 17mm and 24mm (II) TS-Es are about the only thing put out, and they cost $2200 to $2500. If my family and I did more around water, Canon's $300 tough/waterproof camera would be interesting.

    The Powershot SX1 IS might be pretty great for a lot of people, too. Not for us. It'd be for Carey, and she won't use it.
