Corrects for linear AND rotational shake like in the Pentax K7, except in a lens

According to article it will be included in a new lens launched before the end of the year

The article notes that it would be of benefit in macro shooting situations...

So does anyone else think an IS equipped macro is coming before the end of the year?

They are likeliest to put this new IS in an L zoom. The telephoto primes are either (1) too new to justify a redesign, and/or (2) too expensive to see any significant sales boost from implementing the new IS on them. Add in the fact that Canon does not have IS on any prime lenses below 200mm focal length, and you see how unlikely it is that they will debut the technology on a prime. Zooms are ideal because they are popular and more tolerant of compromises (primes are scrutinized very harshly as they are expected to be extremely sharp corner-to-corner).

Next, IS tends to be featured on longer zooms; e.g., 24-105/4L IS (which I believe is the widest EF lens with IS), 70-200/2.8L IS and f/4L IS, 28-300/3.5-5.6L IS, and 100-400/4.5-5.6L IS. There's no doubt it will be an L zoom receiving the new IS, and I doubt it will be on the 70-300 DO (it doesn't sell enough to justify it), the 24-105/4L IS is too new, and the 28-300/3.5-5.6L IS is not really popular enough nor is it optically as good. So that pretty much leaves the 70-200/2.8 and the 100-400/4.5-5.6 as the candidates to receive this new IS.

I think in light of this announcement, the 70-200/2.8 is going to get it. In fact, I think BOTH are going to get it. We just haven't heard the rumors about the 100-400 because it's flying under the radar and being overshadowed by the buzz around the 70-200.

My humble guess is that It will be introduced on a new 24-70 F2.8 L IS MarkII or a new 70-200 F2.8 L IS MarkII .

Whereas translation camera movement is the same for any lens, rotational movement get much worse as the lens length (physical, not focal) increases. That backs up the reasoning behind it being on the 70-200 2.8 and/or the 100-400.

Hmm, might be a good idea to flog my 100-400 now, before prices plumment.

As I've said a few times, I want it to be the 70-200 2.8L IS (mark II).

A 100-400 would be cool too. :)

Maybe 200-500... this is fun. :D

Nah, 200-800 f/1.8L IS... that would be interesting. :lol:

no. It's just the date at which Canon prepared the press release. It's clarifying their claim of "Worlds first".

I've been waiting for them to upgrade the IS on the 300mm f/4L IS...maybe this is it...

What IS telling is the statement, "The system, which the company claims is a world's first for SLR lenses, will be incorporated into a lens that will be released before the end of 2009."

So it looks like we're getting at least one new (or at least updated) lens this year... Maybe it'll be the fabled 100-400mm zoom, hehe.  :p

They mention macro so many times in the press release ( http://www.canon.com/n​ews/2009/jul22e.html (external link) ) that I would be amazed if they did not include it in a macro lens. I bet we'll see a new 180L and possibly even a new 100mm with IS. That would be so sweet.

That was my guess.

I'm really thinking the first lens introduced with this new IS will be a macro of some sort, followed by all the updates everyone is expecting at some point in 2010.
