More Info On Upcoming Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II Lens

Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II lens

The long awaited Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II lens is coming in October 2015. Digicame-Info has posted the following specs (translated from Japanese) for this Series II lens :

    Lens construction : 14 elements and 11 groups
    2 aspherical lenses, one ground aspherical, one glass molded aspherical
    1 UD lens
    1 BR lens (to reduce chromatic aberrations)
    SWC coating
    Much improved weather sealing and durability
    Fluorine coating
    9 blade circular aperture diaphragm
    Minimum focusing distance of 0.28m
    Maximum magnification is 0.21x
    Dust and water resistant
    Filter diameter : 72mm
    Total length : 105.5mm
    Maximum diameter : 80.4mm
    Weight : 760g
    Hood : EW-77B
    Expected delivery - October 2015

I estimate the list price of the lens will be around $2,000 in the United States. Together with the announcement of the EF 35mm f/1.4L II lens, the EF-M 15-45mm f/3-5-6.3 IS STM lens and Rebel SL2 camera may also be announced. Keep checking back for the latest news.
