Canon May Have a 14-24mm f/2.8L Lens In The Works For Late 2012 or Early 2013

Ever since the release of Nikon’s well-loved 14-24mm f/2.8G lens (pictured above), Canon users have been pining for one of their own. So far that pining has led only to speculation, but now, according to Canon Rumors, it looks like we might be seeing an official announcement sometime in the next 12 months.

As of right now, little info is available about the lens — except that we should expect so see it announced sometime after the rumored EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4x begins shipping in late 2012/early 2013 — but that won’t stop us from getting excited. As Canon Rumors pointed out, it and the aforementioned 200-400mm would certainly round out a great range of EF lenses for Canon.

    Now if only Nikon returns the favor by getting a 16-35 f/2.8 lens.

    nikon has a 17-35 f2.8… isnt that close enough?

  • Mansgame

     I suppose…I shouldn’t complain though because I love the 14-24mm.  It’s just really only for one purpose though.   i thought about the 17-35, but it wasn’t that sharp.

    You must have a bad copy…  I have both lenses and both of them are tack sharp.

    Personally, I love the 16-35mm. I had the 12-24 sigma before and rarely used it at the widest. Most of the time, I was aching for something longer than 24mm. I find the 35mm focal length to be very handy. Of course, the 14-24 would be really good for people with the 24-70 and 70-200. But still, how often does an everyday photographer use 14mm? Especially with all the distortion? 16mm is plenty for me. And besides, with canon’s recent pricing scheme, I doubt I’ll be able to justify the cost over my current 16-35mm.

    of couse not…..the sigma 12-24/4.5-5.6 maybe not enough in some cases……

  • Mattias Cole

    Canon has no choice but to release a competitor to Nikon’s 14-24, all professional photographers I know who shoot Canon are buying the Nikon 14-24 and using the adapters to make it work…Canon is losing the game in UWA at the moment….I have the 14-24 and it totally kicks butt, and I’m shooting with 5D MK2 back
