Somewhat disappointing to report today that Canon has indicated the recommended list prices of all these lenses are to be increased to the following new prices. All the lenses apart from the 800mm are not even out yet. The price of these new Canon super tele lenses is HUGELY increased over the price of the old MKI versions so they’d better be incredible pieces of glass! Whilst this probably indicates we are getting closer to a release date, I was told today that as of yesterday at least, Canon Canada still has absolutely no timeline for the Canon 8-15mm lens. This is also a little disappointing because we were previously told that the already delayed release date was pushed back to the end of July. July’s end is rapidly approaching so you’d think if it was to make that deadline Canon Canada would know something of it by now.
