Indeed..though i forgot about the 70-300 IS being released in '05 to be honest...

Anyways as i said, 50mm f/1.4 will be replaced by a new upgraded Pro-grade 50mm f/1.4L at $600-700, even at $700 its still about half the cost of the 50mm f/1.2L and in the reach of most people shooting for say, the 50mm f/1.4 Sigma...

It will offer faster AF than its bigger brother due to lighter focusing groups, and possibly better optical performance due to improvements in glass and coatings...

The old 50mm f/1.4 will be discontinued, as will the 24, 28 and 35 non-L primes, all of which replaced with a 35mm f/1.4 EF-S lens that will be less than $400 and feature a build quality close to the 15-85 (Ie very solid)

-edit- theres an old thread i made that was my entire guesswork for the future of the Canon lens lineup..I said a lot of it will be confirmed/denied in the coming year, i made it roughly around the time the 7D was released last year...so it should be soon to see how many of my predictions come true :)

Yeah, well, I started a post back in 2005 which pretty much was in regards to what we have now as EVIL cameras. Should have patented the idea back then! Damn!

Some of it makes sense, but the TS-E Macro and 60mm L Macro I highly doubt.

A tilt-shift macro would be an interesting lens. Rather unique, and perhaps not popular, but I can see its usefulness in rare situations.

I'd like a 50mm 1.4 with the same build quality and AF of the 28mm 1.8 (though sharper wide open ^^).

28 1.8 + 50 1.4 + 85 1.8 with a 5Dc would still make a lovely budget prime setup for me.
Now if they would only make an affordable 16 - 18mm prime I'd be all set...


Some of my lenses focus beyond infinity...!

And are you able or willing to pay for what such a lens will cost?

Depends on what it would cost.

The design of such a lens might not be as elaborate as you might think.

Such a lens would cost more than a regular TS-E lens and those are costly.

90 mm T-SE lens - $1200. Good focal length for a macro. I can see a macro version at around $1600-1800. Not for most people, but neither are tilt-shift lenses in general. They don't sell nearly as well as most lenses.

The current TS-E 90mm already has a max magnification of .29x at native level. I can see it going to .5x with the next revision.

Canon is losing significant business to Sigma in the 50mm f1.4 lens. Canon should really think about building a sturdy 50mm 1.4 lens to compete with the Sigma and Nikkor build.. or maybe they're worried about competing against the 50L lens.

if canon just use their 85mm f1.8 optics to desgin a new 50mm f1.4, it'd be a kick ass lens

but let me tell you why the mark 2 is not coming. it's because the mark 1 is still selling very very well!

If they used the 85mm f/1.8 optics design, they'd end up with... a 85mm f/1.8.

Damn physics... ;)

Nikon has one :) I know its not a good indicator, but Nikon does have the PC Micro-Nikkor 85mm...

Also iirc theres a few Schneider ones...in fact one of them has a cool design with 2 focus rings for VERY precise focus adjustments

They do exist, Very rare, but they do exist...its quite useful for macro to be able to shift the focus plane, Would be a VERY awesome lens actually

Have you not seen Canon's 90mm TS-E?
It has down to .5M focusing.. and with a 25mm ext, up to 0.6X mag..
"Combining a 90mm focal length and a 1.6' (.5m) minimum focus distance yields a very nice magnification of .29x. Even higher magnification performance can be achieved with the addition of extension tubes. Adding the Canon 12mm Extension tube (external link) allows magnification of .43x and adding the Canon 25mm Extension tube (external link) allows magnification of .6x." - thedigitalpicture.com
