Canon Files Patents for a Number of Upcoming Prime Lenses

If you’re curious as to which prime lenses Canon has marked for refreshing, recently filed patents may hold the answer. The lineup consists of a 50mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.2, 85mm f/1.8, 100mm f/2.0, 135mm f/2.0, and 200mm f/2.0. There are also rumors that a 35mm f/1.4 Mark II is already floating around in the wild, which suggests that it will be officially announced in the near future.

    Canon Rumors is a very accurate source so this kind of news is actually exciting for a change.

    of course I bought a 35/1.4 full price like 3 months ago.  now they’ve dropped the price everywhere and a new one’s coming out.  i have great timing!!!

    A new 50mm f/1.4 is way overdue, the current one is looking rather out of date.

  • Jessica Pressley

    looking forward to seeing the new 50 1.4 and the 35 1.4, hopefully the 85 1.2 is a bigger improvement than the version II they put out not too long ago.

    Of course I bought a 50L f/1.2 1 month ago.. that 50 f/1.4 would of been nice and cheaper..  :)

    I share your unfortunate sense of timing, but you’ve still got a really good lens for the money you paid, so think stoically about it and you’ll feel better :-)
