Canon EF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM Lens Coming in Early 2018

The Current Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM Lens

In addition to the rumored Sony FE 200-600mm Super Telephoto Zoom Lens, Canon is allegedly working hard on a new EF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM super telephoto zoom lens, which is expected to be announced in the first half of 2018.

This new Canon EF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM lens will NOT be an “L” lens, but has great optics and build quality, as to not “step on” the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens ($1,999), and it will have the competitive price to compete with both Sigma and Tamron.

Speaking of the super telephoto zoom lens segment, it has traditionally been dominated by third party manufacturers with Sigma and Tamron: Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 sports lens ($1,799, $200 off)Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Contemporary ($989)Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 G2 ($1,399)Tamron SP 150-600mm f/5-6.3 lens ($869). All these 150-600mm lenses are selling really well. So, Canon does need a slower 600mm super telephoto zoom lens in their lineup.

Anyway, 2018 is a great year for the new Canon super telephoto lens! We expect Canon to unveil this EF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS USM super telephoto zoom lens in early 2018, at CES 2018 in January or CP+ 2018 in February.

In addition, we are getting ready for the Canon Black Friday Deals 2017.
