Photos of Canon’s Image Stabilized 24mm and 28mm Lenses

Here’s a first look at two lenses Canon has up its sleeve: the new Canon 24mm f/2.8 IS USM and Canon EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM. It looks like Canon is making an effort to bring image stabilization to cheaper and wider prime lenses. Currently the “widest” Canon prime lens with image stabilization is the Canon 100mm f/2.8L IS USM. These would also be the first non-L series prime lenses to offer IS. Price and release date for both are currently unknown.

    That’s good news ! I assume this is more for videographers. I still look forward for a 24-70 IS or a 35 mm IS :)

    Am I the only one wondering why two lenses with the same aperture and very close focal lengths are being released at the same time? I wonder if they have drastically different internal optics, or if one has a closer minimum focus distance for macro? I know that the IS on these is being hyped for video, which is cool, but the focus throw looks pretty cramped for shooting video wide open… I know I struggle hitting eyeballs on my 50, but hopefully the wide aspect will make it less noticeable. Also I’m glad they put a focus scale, which is great for video and shooting from the hip…
