Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L II USM Lens Gets Mentioned

Canon Professional Network has posted a video presented by Philip Bloom. Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L II USM lens gets mentioned while showing the performance of Dual Pixel Auto-Focus on the Canon C100 in the video.

It is not clear if this is a typo or poor editing job of marketing material. We can see the EF 50mm f/1.2L II USM lens name in the video.  The replacement for the EF 50mm f/1.2L is a new standart portrait lens and rumored to be named as “EF 50mm f/1.2L II USM”. This lens is said to be in development.
