Three Canon Lenses Leak: 24mm Pancake, 24-105mm Zoom, and 400mm DO Telephoto Prime


The Canon 7D Mark II wasn’t the only upcoming Canon product to be leaked today before its official announcement: we’re getting glimpses of three new lenses as well. Here are the first published images of upcoming Canon 24mm, 24-105mm, and 400mm lenses.

Canon EF-S 24mm f/2.8 STM


This is a compact little pancake lens — just 22.8mm (0.9in) thick — that’s designed for Canon’s crop sensor (APS-C) cameras. It has a full frame equivalent focal length of 38.4mm, and features a glass molded aspherical lens, full-time manual focus, and a minimum focusing distance of 0.16m (0.52ft).

Canon EF 24-105mm f/ 3.5-5.6 IS STM


The upcoming 24-105mm is a zoom lens that offers 4 stop image stabilization and full time manual focus. It will likely be a relatively affordable option for someone looking for a wide-to-telephoto zoom lens. Apparently this might be the new kit lens that will be bundled with the Canon 6D instead of the 24-105mm f/4L.

Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM


The new Canon 400mm DO lens will have third generation diffractive optical lens technology. It’ll also boast a special front element coating, four stop image stabilization, and dust and water resistance.

You can expect these lenses to make their official appearances in the next few days as Canon makes its announcements for Photokina.
