You are assuming the only thing aperture is for is DOF with that statement. How about shooting 1 stop faster shutter speed or 1 stop lower ISO?

dumb question but is f/2.8 really useful on a fisheye?

It definitely is, and I'm glad I got the Canon 15mm 2.8. I had no idea it was being replaced by the new L, and I'm glad I have the now older version. I’m not a fan of circular fisheye, and f/4 is too slow for my needs.

Count the number of EF zooms left in the lineup. They have a bunch of EF-S zooms that are affordable, but there are exactly 2 non-L zooms less than $1000. The DO is $1200 and I don't think you can get the 100-300 anymore (amazon has no vendors and B&H doesn't even list it). That leaves the 28-135 and 75-300. It is not much of a stretch to expect those older lenses to be phased out.

If you go out and buy a full frame camera, do you really want to put a 55-250 IS on it? I mean it's like complaining there isn't an 90 HP Engine option on a Ferrari. People buy a FF camera for a reason, and it's not to use a mediocre lens.

That is why Sigma, Tamron & Tokina are in business. If you cannot afford the Canon copy then go 3rd party.

The 50mm macro has been on my buy list for a while. I guess I better get moving on it.

Back 4 years ago I made a list and since then a lot of things have changed making an update needed.

End of Life
1987 EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye
1987 EF 28mm f/2.8
1987 EF 135mm f/2.8 with Softfocus
1988 EF 24mm f/2.8
1990 EF 35mm f/2
1990 EF 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 USM
1998 EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM
1999 EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM
1999 EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III
2001 EF 400mm f/4 DO IS USM

Series II, L upgrades & IS version
2010 EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM
2011 EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM
2012 EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM
2012 EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM
2012 EF 35mm f/2 IS USM
2014 EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM
2014 EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM

Nearing end of life. Expect any of these lenses to be superseded in 2015

Zoom
1998 EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
2004 EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM

Prime
1987 EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro
1990 EF 50mm f/1.8 II
1991 EF 100mm f/2 USM
1991 TS-E 45mm f/2.8
1991 TS-E 90mm f/2.8
1992 EF 20mm f/2.8 USM
1992 EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
1993 EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
1995 EF 28mm f/1.8 USM
1999 MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro Photo

L lenses. Year cut off is 2002.
1993 EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
1995 EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM
1996 EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM
1996 EF 135mm f/2L USM
1997 EF 300mm f/4L IS USM
1998 EF 35mm f/1.4L USM
1999 EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

Personally I'd like to see a EF 135mm f/2L USM replacement come out with IS and a faster f-number like say 1.8 or 1.4.

Hopefully Sigma, Tamron and Tokina continuous to help in reining in Canon's SRP. :D

No, it was the EF 75-300mm IS that was superseded by the EF 70-300mm IS.

The EF 75-300mm III and EF 75-300mm III USM are both still in production. They are low cost alternatives to the EF 70-300mm IS.

I guess they are even considered low cost alternatives to the EF-S 55-250mm IS II and the EF-S 55-250mm IS STM.

For all the major agreement four years ago that Canon was going to go to a lineup of EF-S and L lenses only, that's clearly not happening. Everyone calmed down yet?

I love a like, but feedback (including CC) is even better!

Isn't the 28-135's successor the 24-105 STM IS lens?
