There is lots of talk currently about the possibility of new Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L II Lens announcement.
The first “evidence”: The Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM Lens is missing from the Canon USA official website. Maybe this is just a mistake, we know this happens time-to-time.
The third “evidence”: For many Canon photographer, they prefer the Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art lens ($949) between the EF 50mm f/1.2L and Sigma 50mm Art.
The previous rumors said Canon will release the new Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L II USM Lens in late 2015 to early 2016.
Hope the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L replacement could come ASAP.
Here are the rumored Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L II features:
- New Design
- Include a floating element like the EF 85mm f/1.2L II
- Get rid of the focus shift problem
- Weight is lighter
- Improved auto focus speed
- Latest and greatest lens coatings
- To be announced in late 2015 to early 2016 (After EF 35mm f/1.4L II)
