The current Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM lens was released in November 2006 while the 70-200mm F2.8L IS II was released in 2010. Both lenses are more than 8 years old and really need an upgrade. We know Nikon released the new AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR lens ($2,796) to update the 70-200mm f/2.8G ED VR II lens ($2,096) in late 2016 and the third-party manufacturers like Tamron and Tokina recently released their own 70-200mm F2.8 and F4 lenses. So it’s the right time for Canon to update their 70-200mm lenses this June.
The detailed specs and pricing info are still unknown at the present. And keep in mind that lens announcement and release dates can change at the last minute. Read more Canon Rumors.
