Does canonpricewatch.com have a good record for leaked products/announcements​? Or should this be considered just another rumor at this point?


Wait til tomorrow and the truth will be revealed :D
I think my Voigtlander 40mm f/2's resale value will be affected :(

I'd say it's a real product - they're generally pretty accurate, but the price point is always up in the air.

You are wise, the only significance is the size
Most pancake lens aren't optically excellent, but let's see how this performs

I personally cant wait to see how these perform. would be a fantastic walk around lens when travelling.
I hope they make a set of these at different focal lengths.

um a ff body is lightweight? Compare to what?

Again, a ff body is discrete? Compare to what? a MF body?

Every ounce and volume matter when you go hiking. You really want to maximize the space in your hiking pack. I assume you don't have any experiences in this field.

I'm interested, but I'd like to see a firm price and I'd like to know the number of aperture blades first.

Its cute, I'll give you that. Not in need of a 40mm, but the smaller size is intersting.

God, I hated that camera. So uncomfortable to use.

They're available for a song on eBay, and KEH tries to dump them quick whenever they're in-stock.

Stepper motor.

Think Arc-form drive, but apparently "silent." No word on just how fast it will be, but I can't imagine there will be much of a lens barrel to move.

I too wonder about the stepper motor. In what way is it like a arc format drive? Hell. I don't really understand what a arc format drive is. :P

Arc-form is what Canon calls the standard micromotor (non-USM) drive. It's generally an inefficient, whiny little motor that spins a physical geartrain which is usually made of plastic or nylon gears.

micro-USM (all USM lenses that do NOT have full-time manual focusing) use quieter motors to push a similar physical geartrain. Most of these are "nearly" silent, and certainly are compared with typical arc-form motors.

Ring-USM lenses support full-time manual focus and lack physical geartrains. They use magnetism to spin carriers and move elements. They're referred to as ring, because the magnets are arranged around the inner diameter of the lens barrel. The elements or carriers pass through the magnets.

Edit: I suspect that they're using a new form of motor which is much shallower than the typical arc motor. It'll be interesting to see just how silent and fast (or slow) it is.
