I have a feeling you will never stop waiting...

How come? :confused: I'm sure Canon will upgrade the 35L eventually

Not with IS on a f/1.4 lens. If I read correctly that is very difficult to do optically due to the large aperture. Does anybody offer IS on a f/1.4 lens from any company?

Canon will for sure update the 35L, but it will not have IS. And it will cost $2000+ easily. I would expect $2300 honestly.

They have the 35mm f/2 IS now...If you need the IS.

Are you secretly a Canon engineer in disguise? You seem awfully sure it won't have IS...:cry:

But on a serious note, I don't think it's a physical issue of a large aperture - the actual aperture diaphragm on the 35L is tiny. The 85L...now that is big

Lenses like the 200 f/2L IS have a far larger aperture diaphragm yet have IS

It's my belief and hope that:
- The video market
- The diminishing improvements from camera sensor high ISO improvements
- user demand from people like me :D
will push Canon into incorporating IS into fast primes

We've already seen it with lenses like the 200 f/2L IS (I'm sure back when the 200 f/1.8L was out everyone said "IS is impossible") and the Nikon UWA zooms and the 35 f/2 IS etc.

Oh well, I'm in the minority but I'd appreciate 4 stops IS ove 1 stop of dof/light any time and anywhere...

If you look up the forum is called "Canon EF and EF-S lenses" ;)

And yet, we talk about MP-E and TS-E lenses on this forum too, as well as EOS mount non-Canon lenses ;)

The point was that in this forum we discuss lenses that fit the EOS (and now EOS-M) mount whether they are Canon or 3rd party.

Unless I'm mistaken, this is not a Nikon forum.


Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!

Sigma. Hard to use the Canon version on a Nikon body.

You will note that this forum is subtitled:

Everything about lenses for Canon digital EOS system.

Other camera brands need not apply.

This forum is for discussion of lenses (of any mount) used on Canon EOS camera bodies, whether they are direct mounts or via adapters. If you use a body that does not have some kind of Canon EOS mount, you will have to find somewhere else to discuss the topic. For Nikon, there is a thread in the General Photography section.

My comment was just a lame attempt at humor, you wouldn't catch me here defending a Nikonian ;)

I was leaning towrd the Sigma, but today I think I am leaning toward the Canon. I like the smaller size of the Canon which will be better for travel. The 4 stop IS is great, and I love to take food photos on vacation. I don't expect to be an early adopter of either, but am waiting on reviews of both. If the Canon is pretty darn sharp (even if less sharp than the Sigma) and has nice bokeh, that will seal the deal. The IS on my new Canon 70-300 is incredible- it's like entering a new world of photography.

^- I think the Canon f/2 will be just as sharp as the Sigma at f/2, an f/2 design is less extreme after all and CAnon's latest lenses have been optically stunning

I wonder what the Bokeh will be like...

I'm on the fence between the Sigma and the Canon still, which is fine, still waiting on my 28 to sell

I agree that the recent Canon releases have been of very high quality. Perhaps, they are upgrading all of their line-ups preparing for a new generation of 40+ megapixel cameras. And, it is not that only new expensive lenses are of high quality such as 24-70 mkii, 28 prime etc., new cheaper ones are also good. The 150$ 40 2.8 is very good.

Even the 18-55 EOS-M lens kit, which I have been using in the last coupe of days , is also very capable. No one did a test on the 18-55 EOS-M yet but from my pictures, it is performing as good as the 24-105 L. That's how good it is. I can't wait to see the reviews of this litter lens.

Perhaps, Canon is applying a new formula for all of their optics ?
