    Question Delta International "leaks" 3 Canon lens before PMA???

    Hi All,

    Those who know me will know that I am not for rumour mongering, however, an online camera retailer has listed 3 Canon lenses as being on sale with no prices yet so although it aint official, this doesn't really qualify as rumours as well...
    CANON EF 24-105 2.8 L ( no IS ??? )
    CANON EF 500 2.8 D O "IS" USM
    CANON EF 200-400 F/4 DO "IS" USM

    See for yourself:
    For the first 2 lenses...

    For the last lens...

    Happy dreaming!!!

    24-105mm f2.8L?

    Wow...tt's my working range...man...I'll be first in line to get it if they really do release that lens

    However the fairly large zoom range would have me skeptical about its quality with respect to the 28-70L which I presume it would replace. We wun have another dud like the 17-35 L I hope? :P

    Anyway I think IS is optional for such a focal length..will be nice to have but I hope they wun implement it else I'd have to shell out 800-1k more for it haha

    Hmmm... it looks like Canon made some noise about it and Delta has pulled it off their list. Someone also posted in the dpreview forums that he called Delta up to confirm the existence of the lens, see

    The 28-70 f2.8L weighs about 900g so I wouldn't expect the rumoured 24-105 f2.8L to weigh anything lesser. Lenses of this weight and this range is stable enough and should not require IS. I sure hope they have IS on the 70-200 f4L though.

    If Canon can reduce the weight and length of their 400mm lens to the DO 400mm, then I guess they should have no problem producing a 24-105mm f/2.8 DO lens at affordable weight, maybe comparable to the current 28-70L.

    Is the 24-105 an L lens or DO lens? The first message on this thread suggests that its L.

    Well.. I did a copy & paste straight from their site, so what you see here is what was on their site.

    Anyway, we'll know for sure at PMA later this month.

    Looks like the suggested 24-105 MIGHT have IS afterall!!! See report by the french magazine Chasseur d'Images which talks about this and the other 2 lenses mentioned above. The report also talks about the possibility of a 6.1 Megapixel version of the EOS 1D, the EOS 1DS (S for studio).

    Have fun dreaming!!!

    That would really make my day provided that the lens cost less than 3k. Maybe 2.5k...?

    Unlikely Zapp... seeing as the 28-70L without bells and whistles is already almost 2.5k. But you can hope!

    I was quite surprised that the new 16-35 is going for less than $2.5k. However, I was quoted by a shop for $2.8k.

    WAH!!
    Chop carrot head ah???

    And I agree with Jed, quite unlikely that the 24-105 will be S$2.5k, I think S$3k is a more possible figure....

    Needless to say, I won't step into that shop ever again but not for the over quote. Its over another trade in deal. That shop was downright dishonest.
