Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS Lens Rumored To Be in Development

Canon is rumored to be working on a 24-70mm f/2.8L lens with built-in image stabilization technology.

According to latest Canon rumors, the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS lens is allegedly in development and the IS version of the standart zoom lens would not replace the non-stabilized version, and would probably cost a lot.

Canon already filed a patent for an EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS lens in April 2014 in Japan which was the fourth patent for this lens so far.

Canon’s EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS USM lens is the most popular lens in the lineup and it will sure compete the Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 VR lens. Meanwhile, the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM standart zoom lens is currently priced for $2,299.00 at Amazon.

The price of this new IS lens will be more expensive than EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM, and will not replace EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM.
