New Rebel and 11-24mm Coming Soon from Canon?

By Anthony Thurston on January 16th 2015

The latest buzz in the Canon rumor mill is that the camera the company showcased in their marketing for the new CS100 is actually an upcoming, yet unannounced, Rebel line camera.

Unfortunately, that is where the information stops regarding the next Rebel. The upcoming body is expected to be announced some time shortly before CP+ in February, meaning any time in the next couple of weeks really.

In addition to that Rebel buzz, we have something of interest for you pros out there as well. According to a report over on Canon Rumors, the long rumored 11-24mm F/4L is very close to being announced.

This news comes after the site received reports of multiple major retailers being notified about the lens and its pricing from Canon. The price CR was told though is what some might call astronomical; the rumor site is reporting that the lens will come in somewhere around the $3,000 mark. That is some major cheddar, and this lens will need to be perfect optically for that sort of a price to be taken seriously.

But even then… $3,000. Ouch!

No word on a release date yet, but if retailers are being notified, the announcement is not far off. Stay tuned and we will keep you updated when/if this new lens is announced.

    I’m actually ok with the $3,000 price of the 11-24, mainly since I have a Sigma 12-24 for my Canon system. If this came out under $1,500 I might have some serious consideration of the upgrade to be doing. At twice that, not an option. IIt’s a great range to have.

    A bit much at $3K.

    Nikons version of this lens is around $2.200,00 so three grand is pushing it.

    Wow, at $3000.00 for a Ultra Wide Angle lens, it’s cheaper to buy a 7D Mark II, and a EF-S 10-22mm Lens.

      I agreed with you especially since the new camera supports better ISO performance.
      These top notch lenses are intended for photographers who are making a lot of money.

      The Kit lens is going to get you some decent results, but with such a lens you can take those amazing stair pictures.
