|Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II lens|
Canon is expected to announce the EOS-1D X Mark II and EOS-5D Mark IV cameras some time in Q1 and first half of the 2016, respectively. My readers know the current EOS-1D X camera has been my pick as the best full frame DSLR camera for sports and wildlife photography three years in a row.
In addition to the two expected cameras, Canon is also expected to announce more EF, EF-S and EF-M lens in 2016. One lens of particular interest to me is the EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III. The current model is my favorite wide angle glass and accompanies me on all my wildlife photo shoots.
The Mark III model should be announced in 2016, perhaps after or in conjunction with either camera but IS will not be a feature on the new lens. It will have the latest Blue Spectrum Optics technology and retains the same filter diameter. It may be slightly heavier due to the new optics and comes with superior weather sealing. I will be most interested in upgrading to this new lens. You can see my equipment bag and works on MichaelDanielHo.com.
