Comparable Canon to Nikon's DC?

I don't think this goes in the rumor section since there I haven't heard anything, but if it does, could a mod move it please?

Anyone know of something in Canon's line (current or upcoming) that does what Nikon's DC does? I used my buddy's 135 f2 DC, and I have a definite want for something that does the same in Canon's line, but I'm not aware of anything like it on this side of the fence :(

Canon doesn't have one. AS far as I know, the only two lenses like that on the market are from Nikon and Sony. The Nikon one has a manual aperture ring, so you could quite easily adapt it to your Canon if that is something you really need.


P.S. In case anyone was going to suggest the Canon 135mm SF, the Canon one is "Soft focus", the Nikon one is "Defocus control". The Nikon controls the softness of the out of focus areas and the Canon one controls the softness of the in focus areas. So not the same thing.

Yeah I thought about getting the 105 or 135 for it, but I was half-hoping there was a Canon version so I could utilize AF. I don't suppose there's been talk of Canon coming out with something similar? (I'm still relatively new to this field, so I'm not familiar with what's transpired beyond the previous year)

No there likely won't be one.

Although to be honest, I am pretty underwhelmed at the "big" difference the Defocus control ring makes. Us Canon folks have the 135L that already has amazing bokeh with no bokeh tuning ring required.

Yea I dont use it much(depend on my MOOOOOD).....The DC that is....but it does defocus things a bit more.....Its a very good lens if your shooting on the dark side.... I tried the 105 and didnt like it...the 135 is very good...

when/if I go back to canon the 135L well be the second lens i get! Thats a different story though....I wish canon made lenses for Nikon bodies :)

True enough, but I'm sure there's someone out there who wants to regulate the bokeh in a given shot.
