    Default Canon Introduces Six New L-Series EF Lenses And Accessories

    Below is a recent Canon Press Release. My comments are below each section.

    Canon Introduces the World’s Widest Fisheye Zoom Lens, a New Telephoto Zoom Lens and Two New Super Telephoto Lenses with New Extenders

    LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., August 26, 2010 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging, rounds out its Summer product introductions with four new L-series lenses and two new accessory extenders for professionals and advanced amateurs. Leading the introductions, the EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM lens is the world’s widest fisheye zoom lens, providing professional photographers and cinematographers with a unique optical tool for capturing 180˚ angle-of-view shots on all EOS Digital SLR cameras. Photographers looking for a broad focal length range with excellent image quality will enjoy the Company’s first L-series 70-300mm telephoto zoom lens, the new EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens, delivering outstanding sharpness, contrast and color fidelity in a compact, lightweight form factor. Canon is introducing two new versions of its popular super telephoto lenses, the new EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM and EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM super-telephoto lenses delivering incredible image quality at all apertures for professional photojournalists, sports and wildlife photographers. For professionals and advanced amateurs looking to push their L-series Canon telephotos to the limit, the Company is proud to upgrade its two popular extenders with the new Canon Extender EF 1.4x III and Extender EF 2x III for additional telephoto reach and exceptional clarity. Photographers will immediately notice that the latest Canon L-series telephoto lenses and extenders have a more neutral white tone compared to earlier models. This new shade of white will be used with all L-series telephoto lenses and extenders beginning in the second half of 2010. The introductions of these Canon lenses have been timed with Canon’s latest camera introduction, the Canon EOS 60D Digital SLR camera, designed for advanced amateurs and emerging professional photographers.

    “Canon’s core has always been our optics, and we are constantly challenging ourselves to produce better and more advanced optical systems for our customers. These six new products advance the state of the art in Canon lens technology and provide new and innovative tools for professionals and advanced amateur photographers,” stated Yuichi Ishizuka, executive vice president and general manager, Consumer Imaging Group, Canon U.S.A.

    Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM lens

    With its unique focal length range, the EF 8-15mm f/4L USM is the world’s widest fisheye zoom lens. It delivers 180 degrees diagonal angle of view images for all EOS SLR cameras with imaging formats ranging from full-frame to APS-C, and provides 180˚ circular fisheye images for full-frame EOS models. Professional photographers and cinematographers will revel in the unique perspectives afforded to them through this lens, particularly when coupled with the highly popular full-frame EOS 5D Mark II DSLR camera. Canon’s new Fisheye zoom lens features both UD and aspherical lens elements to enhance image quality and is equipped with rubber gaskets and seals to enhance weather resistance. Canon’s proprietary SWC (Sub Wavelength Structure Coating) is used to minimize flare and a new fluorine anti-smear coating is applied to the front and rear elements to make lens cleaning easier than ever.

    The Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM lens is expected to be available in January of 2011 for an approximate retail price of $1,400.

    My Comments

    This neat lens is designed to give fish-eye coverage with all cameras including those with APS-C sensors like the EOS-7D and 50D. With full frame cameras like the EOS-1Ds Mark III and the EOS-5D Mark II this lens will provide 180 degree circular fisheye images that will border on the surreal. At the very least, I will borrow this lens and try it out at Bosque next year.

    Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens

    Compact and lightweight, yet durable and professionally sharp, the EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens is the ideal telephoto zoom lens for advanced amateurs looking for that extra reach to bring a subject in tight and close. Providing the power and durability to maximize every shooting opportunity, the Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens features two UD ultra-low dispersion glass elements for enhanced sharpness, L-series weather and dust sealing for shooting in harsh conditions, improved mechanical design, and streamlined ergonomics to help avoid inadvertent mode switch operation. The shapes of the lens elements and their coatings have been optimized to minimize ghosting and flare to produce high-contrast and high-resolution throughout the zoom range. A sophisticated floating system optical formula optimizes image quality at all distance settings and reduces minimum focusing distance by more than a foot. An updated optical image stabilization system compensates for camera shake up to an equivalent of four full shutter-speed steps, a full step improvement compared to earlier EF 70-300mm lenses. A new fluorine anti-smear coating is applied to the front and rear elements.

    The Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens is expected to be available toward the end of October for an approximate retail price of $1,500.

    My Comments

    Of the four lenses here, this one grabbed my attention the most. It would seem to be a great lens for big trips like Midway and Antarctica where I always bring a big lens (like the 800mm f/5.6L IS lens) and am then faced with problems meeting the usually tough weight restrictions. It will give folks considerable extra reach beyond the 70-200s. The four-stop IS should be a big boon for hand holders and the minimum focusing distance is a respectable 1.2 meters. It is a twist zoom–I am glad for that– and is a true lightweight at 2.3 pounds. For less serious photographers it will surely be a great travel lens. A big negative is that–just as with the 70-200 f/4L IS that I love so much–you will need to purchase the tripod collar as an option.

    Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens


    The Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM is the 6th generation of a venerable family of Canon 300mm f/2.8 lenses that began in 1974, and have become famous for their exceptional sharpness, contrast and color fidelity. Ideal for a wide range of applications ranging from professional photojournalism and sports photography to nature and wildlife, Canon’s 300mm f/2.8 lenses have always led the industry with new technical advances in every generation. The EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens carries on this tradition with improved image quality, lighter weight, improved Image Stabilization and enhanced durability making it a great option for handheld work in the field. The optical formula of the new lens has been upgraded with the inclusion of two fluorite lens elements for improved image quality and reduced chromatic aberration. Helping to reduce arm fatigue, Canon has reduced the overall weight of the lens by 8 percent to 82.9 oz., making it the lightest weight lens in the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8 series. The Image Stabilizer provides an equivalent of approximately four full shutter speed steps of shake compensation and has been enhanced through the incorporation of a rolling-ball-friction system in place of sliding parts in the compensation optics barrel for a minimum-friction structure. The overall durability of the lens has also been enhanced through increased usage of magnesium alloy and titanium for lens barrel components, together with weather sealing for all exterior joints and switches and a new fluorine anti-smear coating applied to the front and rear elements.

    The Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM lens is expected to be available in December for an approximate retail price of $7,000.

    My Comments

    For avian photography the 300 f/2.8s have traditionally been seen in the hands of North America’s best raptor photographers, folks like Brian K. Wheeler, Jim Zipp, and Ned Harris. In recent years more and more digital nature photographers have selected the exceptionally sharp lenses in this family as their workhorse telephotos using them on a tripod with their 1.6 multiplier cameras and either the 1.4 or 2X teleconverter. Again the new four-stop IS system should be a big plus along with the 8% reduction in weight. At 5.2 pounds this lens will not be hand holdable for long periods by most folks. I am expecting image sharpness with and without the TC to be breathtaking. I do not know if I will ever get my hands on this one.

    Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens

    Quintessential for many sports assignments including baseball, football, soccer and golf, Canon’s professional 400mm f/2.8 lenses provide the light gathering capability and long telephoto reach that photographers need to freeze the action and fill the frame . The Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM is the 5th generation in Canon’s 400mm f/2.8 series and the successor to the current EF 400mm introduced in 1999. The new lens has been engineered for the ultimate in optical performance through the use of two fluorite lens elements for improved quality and reduced chromatic aberration. Helping photographers in the field, Canon has reduced the overall weight of the lens by a substantial 28 percent from 189.4 oz to 135.8 oz, making it Canon’s lightest weight 400mm f/2.8 lens ever. The Image Stabilizer provides an equivalent of approximately four full shutter speed steps of shake compensation and has been enhanced through the incorporation of a rolling-ball-friction system in place of sliding parts in the compensation optics barrel for a minimum-friction structure. The overall durability of the lens has also been enhanced through increased usage of magnesium alloy and titanium for lens barrel components, together with weather sealing for all exterior joints and switches and a new fluorine anti-smear coating is applied to the front and rear elements.

    The Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM lens is expected to be available in December for an approximate retail price of $11,000.

    My Comments

    I have never been a big fan of the 400 f/2.8s. For folks doing big mammals in low light and working with songbirds from blinds and/or at feeders at close range this lens makes sense, otherwise I stick with what I wrote in the original “The Art of Bird Photography II” too many years ago: “For bird photography always choose a longer slower lens over a faster shorter one.” Reducing the weight of this former behemoth to under 8.5 pounds seems a miracle, one that will leave professional sports photographers smiling big time. Incredible sharpness is a given.

    Canon Extender EF 1.4x III & Canon Extender EF 2x III

    The two new EF extenders are direct replacements of the current extenders offered by Canon as essential accessories for professionals. These new extenders have been designed to provide faster autofocusing and improved autofocus precision with compatible EF lenses. Each extender includes an anomalous dispersion lens element for reduced chromatic aberration and enhanced optical image quality. Each extender also features a newly developed microcomputer that increases AF precision when the extenders are used with a IS Series II EF super-telephoto lens. Both extenders are equipped with rubber gaskets and seals to enhance weather resistance. A new fluorine anti-smear coating is applied to the front and rear elements of both extenders.

    The Canon Extender EF 1.4x III & Canon Extender EF 2x III are expected to be available in December for an approximate retail price of $500 each.

    My Comments

    Sharper images with faster and more accurate AF; what’s the question? I will be ordering two 1.4X IIIs and possibly a 2X III (the latter if I fall in love with the 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II).

    New Lens Features

    In addition to an anti-reflection multi-coating, the front and rear elements of all newly announced EF lenses and extenders are treated with Canon’s new fluorine anti-smear lens coating. The fluorine layer is highly oil- and water-repellent so that any oil smears or water droplets on the lens can be wiped off quickly and easily without the aid of solvents using a soft dry cloth. These four new lenses and two new extenders are the first of their type to employ fluorine coating, and it is expected that this new feature will enhance the usability of the lenses during adverse shooting conditions.

    The new Series II EF super-telephoto lenses can correct camera shake up to four full shutter speed steps, compared to two shutter speed steps for the original versions. This improvement is made possible by a new low-friction stabilizer mechanism that is not only more efficient than the previous design but also smaller and lighter. Other enhancements to the IS systems of both new super telephoto lenses have enabled quieter operation ideal for use during video capture.

    Providing professional sports and wildlife photographers with greater tracking flexibility, Canon has introduced a third Image Stabilization mode option to its new EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM and EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM lenses. When mode 3 is selected on the lens, the image stabilization effect will not be seen in the viewfinder. When the shutter button is pressed halfway, the lens will begin detecting camera or lens movement and only during exposure, when the shutter is fully depressed, will the Image Stabilization engage and provide the equivalent of four stops faster compensation for blur-free images. The new Mode 3 is particularly useful when a photographer does not want to see the IS working in the viewfinder while tracking a moving subject.

    Helping moviemakers achieve smoother and more appealing focus shifts when filming on EOS DSLR cameras, Canon has included a new Power Focus (PF) mode on the Company’s two new super telephoto lenses. This mode allows manual rack focusing to be operated smoothly by turning a playback ring that is normally used for the focus preset function. Both low-speed and high-speed focus shifting are available.

    Additionally, a new security slot attachment has been included on both new super-telephoto lenses to allow a wire-type security lock to be easily affixed, a great safety feature for professionals shooting from high vantage points above arenas and crowds.

    My Comments

    The anti-smear coating can only be a plus especially when working in the rain.

    Assuming that the new four-stop IS systems on the various lenses will work as well as this technology does on my beloved EF 800mm f/5.6 L IS lens it will be a great improvement on former systems. And so far, the IS on the 800 has proved durable despite rough handling by yours truly.

    I will need to try out IS III in order to voice any opinion.

    ?? on the Power Focus feature.

    The security slot feature sounds great for those standing below the photographer’s position

    I look forward to trying some of the new stuff at the earliest opportunity and will report my findings when I do.

    That is something I need for my monitors. Smear marks often follow my finger pointing a little to closely to the screen saying, "I want that lens", or, "Look at that awesome image".

    However, I think I will not pick up any of these new lenses. I have just got my hands on - unfortunately not literally yet - a mint 500mm f/4 and think that will keep me happy for a while :).

    However, I am interested to see how people find the new TCs. I have the 1.4x markII and while I am relatively happy, I find the autofocus pretty slow when it is attached to my 300mm f/4. However, I guess that combination will become relatively redundant with the 500mm on its way.

    Hi Ben, AF will always be slower when a TC is in place because AF depends on light. And TCs are just as important with the 500 as with shorter lenses. I used my 1.4X TCV about 60% of the time with my 500 and used the 2X at least 30% of the time. The trick is learning to make good images with the 2X :)

    Artie, yes practice is needed :). I was not under the impression that I would not need the TC with the 500mm, just I had read that the AF is faster than on the 300mm.

    With pre-orders available over here in Europe for the mark III TCs, the price for the mark IIs has dropped.

    Is it worth getting a mark II 2x? It would be for on a 7D - I know I lose AF - with the 500mm.

    As I said, AF will always be slowed when you add a TC. If you start with a faster focusing lens the loss of speed should be proportional (I guess) :)

    You wrote: Is it worth getting a mark II 2x? It would be for on a 7D - I know I lose AF - with the 500mm."

    I can never tell if something is "worth if" for someone else.... If I were God, I might know. How do you know that you lose AF with the 500 f/4-1/4X TC-7D combo?

    Do you have APB II? Do you read our free BAA Bulletins? :)

    How do you know that you lose AF with the 500 f/4-1/4X TC-7D combo?
    Artie, I think Ben was referring to the 2X TC with the 7D and 500 f/4 which he would lose AF at f/8 on a non pro body.

    Is it worth getting a mark II 2x? It would be for on a 7D - I know I lose AF - with the 500mm.

    What do you mean, you are not God!? :confused:

    Yes, the "worth it" requires a good deal of assumption, so next time perhaps a different phrase.

    I have read here about the 7D only AF at f/5.6, although with Live view it can also focus at f/8, right? But I heard that is painfully slow.

    I do have APBII, and try to read the bulletins whenever I can.

    Chris, thanks for that. I didn't even see that Artie had written 1.4 not 2.

    In reply to that, I know AF WILL work with the 7D + 1.4x + 500mm.

    Hi Ben, Nope; just a Jewish kid from Brooklyn who has worked hard for a long time doing what he loves. Ah, I misunderstood your question. Sorry. The 7D focuses to f/5.6 so yes with the 1.4X and the 500 and the 7D, but know to the 7d/2X/500mm combo unless you are in Live View or unless you use the tape the pins trick. I asked about ABP II and the Bulletins because the stuff above is in both. But that was when I thought I understood your question.

    BTW, there is no "... mark II 2x" Did you mean the EF 2X III or the EF 2X II?

    Yes, EF 2X II was what I meant. By this time, my brain is going into neutral after a long day of teaching and lab work.

    I have learnt a lot from this forum, the bulletins and ABPII is brilliant, and I have been through it from cover to cover about four times. This was the reason for the "I know" in the panel #5 ;)

    The 2X IIs will surely drop in price once the 2X IIIs are easily available. Thanks for your kind words and your "I know." :)

    Chris -

    I know I can always look forward to some wonderful comments from you... but you've really nailed it on this one! But once you're gone, maybe your wife will sell your gear at bargain prices!:):)

    That is great news but disappointing that Canon still has not replaced the antique 100-400. Artie, you are going to LOVE the new 70-200 mk2. Great IS and sharp as a tack even with TCs attached. Per your request, I posted about it in the Gear section under a new thread.

    Hey Bill, Bill, There is a 70-200 f/2.8L IS II (borrowed from Canon Professional Services thank you very much) sitting on my dining room table as we speak. I will be taking it on my next trip to the Tetons and Yellowstone on the 29th of this month. I am expecting great things based on what I have heard and on seeing Patrick Sparkman’s images from the recent Galapagos trip. If the thing makes sharp images with the old 2X who needs the 100-400?

    I read that they also introduced Mk II versions of the 500 f/4 and 600 f/4 at Photokina to be available in 2011. I can't wait for you all to dump your Mk I versions next year really cheap so I can afford one :)
