In August, the rumor mill started buzzing about Canon having a new 11-24mm lens up its sleeve. The next month, a leaked photo gave us our first glimpse of that lens, an 11-24mm f/4L.
There is now more confirmation that this lens is in fact legit. That’s the good news. The bad news? It will likely cost quite a pretty penny.
Canon Rumors reports that a couple more sources have confirmed the existence of this lens. The sources seem to agree on the price as well: a whopping $3,000.
While no one was expecting an 11-24mm L lens for full frame cameras to come cheap, the price point seems to be quite high given the fact that the lens is f/4. The next priciest ultra-wide zoom after this lens would be the existing 16-35mm f/2.8L II, which costs $1,700.
What do you guys think of this lens at this price point? Feel free to weigh in through the comments and the poll below:
