Yesterday, the focus was on  a 16-35mm F/2.8L II, and today, we are hearing rumblings that the Canon 45mm and 90mm Tilt-Shift lenses are also in line for a revamp and upgrade.


According to the report over on Canon Rumors, Canon has prioritized revamping their 45mm and 90mm Tilt-shift lenses. The thought is that the new versions could be better optimized to work on a camera like the 5DS or 5DSR (or other high megapixel sensors that may be coming).

The report also suggested that high-end glass supplies are limiting the introduction of more top end lenses to the Canon lens lineup. All I have to say to that is, come on Hoya, get your act together! 

In all seriousness though, as cool as the Tilt-Shift lenses are, I am a bit puzzled as to why those lenses would be a priority for Canon. Surely there are other, more mainstream, lenses that could use an update first.

What are your thoughts on this? Would you like to see a revamp of Canon’s Tilt-Shift lenses? Leave a comment below and let us know what you think!
