It looks like canon submitted a patent about 3 months ago for the lens. Does anyone know how long it is going to take to get to the marketplace?
Thanks,
mike

Canon submits many patents and not all are taken to mass production.


Mark.

If it runs $600+ I don't see much of a market for it.

Heya,

I'm trying to think of a situation where I'm going to run a shutter speed of less than 1/50s, with an aperture of f1.8, where IS will actually matter.

Very best,

What if you need more DOF and have to stop down?

it seems the people buying the 35mm with is are pretty happy with it, used for video, shooting at 1/15 of a sec, etc, if possible it would seem it or something else would go into production due to alot of people unhappy with the canon 50mm 1.4, also they are refreshing their lines with image stabilization. The 50 is as sharp overall vs the sigma 50, but bokeh on the sigma is better and people have reliability issues with the canon version.

Heya,

True, but I'm thinking more along the lines of someone buying a f1.8 lens in the first place, probably not to shoot at f8 very often. People buying those lenses that fast are usually doing it for that very reason.

Just thinking out loud.

Very best,

I think "video" could be the key word here. A fast 50 with IS and STM would be a great "normal" lens for FF video, for those who crave the shallow DoF that is a hallmark of DSLR video.

Maybe I'm wrong - I've not a lot of experience on the video side of things to draw from.

Seriously? The canon 50mm range is desperately in need of an updated lineup.

The existing 1.8 is the cheap and cheerful option and is fine as a baseline- but the shorty forty has rendered it almost redundant.

The 1.4 is unusably soft until f2.0 anyway. On top of that the focusing mechanism is not true-USM and is woefully pone to failure. Additionally, it's not an accurate focuser in low light, or mixed light.

The 1.2 is beautiful in terms of color, contrast, and bokeh, but is soft wide open, and suffers from focus shift when stopped down.

I would kill for a Canon 50 that is sharp wide open (which all the new IS primes are), focuses very accurately (which all the new IS primes do), and was of a robust build (again, check). The IS is just a great bonus in that I can now shoot primes for handheld video (awesome) and can stop down for non-moving targets in low light. I cannot wait to give Canon my money for this and I'm not alone.

NotBlake,
Please allow me to modify my statement. At $600+ it doesn't do anything for me. That's what I should have said in the first place.

CanonRumors: Canon plans to bring back the 50mm F1.0L, add IS, and release it as a kit lens on the 7D Mark II which now has a release date!

All good points. I'd wait in line to buy this lens, and my 40mm would quickly be up for sale

Not everyone. I've had mine 3-1/2 years and no issues. How about the Sigma's focus issues? Both are blown out of proportion.

I would buy it, provided it is up to snuff optically. In other words, if it is the 50mm f/1.8 equivalent of the 35mm f/2 IS USM lens, I'll fork over $650. It's not like the EF mount is spoiled for choices in modern, auto-focus 50mm lenses.
