Canon is rumored to announce a new 50mm lens in the near future, the aperture of this new 50mm lens is still unknown. Canon already announced the new EF 50mm f/1.8 STM lens last year, so this year they may update the 30+ year old EF 50mm f/1.4 lens, or the current EF 50mm f/1.2L.
We know that Canon has filed several new 50mm f/1.4 patents in the past few years. So, it is highly likely that the new 50mm f/1.4 will come out first.
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
