Canon Testing Two EF 50mm L Lenses
The Canon EF 50mm L rumor is almost as old as time itself (well okay not quite) but historically it has ended up being a bit of a blank round as far as announcements go. Good news however for those of you who are still eagerly awaiting an EF 50mm f/1.4L as one is apparently being tested right now. It is unclear what the other prototype is exactly but It could be the 50mm f/2 APO lens that was patented earlier this year.
It would be easy to dismiss this rumor given its lack of substance in the past but it really is high time Canon refreshed this focal length in their L line-up, so this time it feels a little more like one may be on the way. Late 2018 is the rumored announcement date so stay tuned.
