Canon to Update EF 50mm f/1.4 Soon?

Canon has filed several new 50mm f/1.4 patents in the past few years, and the previous rumors said that Canon will announce a new 50mm lens in the near future, but the aperture of this new 50mm lens is still unknown: Canon may update the 30+ year old EF 50mm f/1.4 lens, or the current EF 50mm f/1.2L.

According to a rumor (unknown source) coming out of CanonRumors, Canon will “soon” announce the EF 50mm f/1.4 replacement and this new lens is ready for production.

Here are the rumored specs of the upcoming Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 II USM Lens:

  • Ring-type USM
  • DOF scale will remain
  • Closer minimum focusing distance than the current lens
  • No IS

As I mentioned earlier, this come from an unknown source and take it with the appropriate amount of salt.
