    Canon EF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS is Coming

    we had heard a few times that Canon would be introducing a new supertelephoto zoom, something like an EF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS. This is the type of lens segment that is dominated by Sigma and Tamron, as Canon’s longest “affordable” zoom is the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II.

            
    A patent for a zoom range smaller super telephoto has emerged. The optical formula is for an EF 200-600mm f/4.5-5.6 IS. We’ve heard in the past that Canon was working on slower super telephoto lens, and a zoom makes a lot of sense.


    Patent Publication No. 2015-212724
    • Published 2015.11.26
    • Filing date 2014.5.1
    • Zoom ratio 3.00
    • Focal length 200.00 340.00 600.00
    • F-number 4.60 4.60 5.20
    • Angle of view 6.18 3.64 2.07
    • Image height 21.65 21.65 21.65
    • Overall length of the lens 355.16 355.16 355.16
    • BF 65.16 65.16 65.16

    we’re told there’s a good chance it will come in the second  half of 2018. We’re also told that Canon seems to have a goal to give any new lens some kind of a unique feature over the competition. What that could be for a supertelephoto zoom is anyones guest, but recent history does show some innovation in the lens department from Canon.
    I think it will be above USD 2000 for ok image quality but still with big compromises
