The first photos of the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM and Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lenses have been leaked on the web ahead of the optics’ imminent launch event.
In recent times it has been rumored that Canon is on the verge of announcing a couple of new zoom optics with wide angles of view.
Shortly after the first mentions, inside sources have decided to reveal the focal lengths, apertures, and other details about the two products, so we can be almost certain that the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM and Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lenses will be revealed soon.
As we are approaching the launch event quite fast, we are expecting more and more details to be leaked on the web. Our expectations have been met as the first photos of the two wide-angle zoom optics have just showed up online.
Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM and Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM photos leaked
Usually, the leaked shots of upcoming products have a pretty low quality. The two photos do not stand out from the crowd. However, we can see that both of them have zoom and focus rings. Additionally, the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4L IS USM lens features a depth-of-field scale, while the other optic does not have such tool.
Both will be released in black and it is very unlikely that white versions will be released now. Nevertheless, we should not rule out any possibilities, as a white model of the Canon EOS 100D / Rebel SL1 DSLR camera has been launched this year and it would make a nice kit alongside the Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM lens.
Canon to replace EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 lens with EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 lens
The EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 lens will replace the existing EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 lens. The current model has a brighter aperture, depth-of-field scale, and a longer focal length. The upcoming model will lose all these features, but it will come packed with built-in image stabilization technology.
Users will be the ones who will decide whether this is a good decision or not. The Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 lens is a highly-commended product at Amazon with a rating of 4.7 stars out of 5 stars.
The aforementioned retailer is selling this lens for a price of about $600. The price tag of its replacement is unknown to us, but we invite you to stay tuned for more and for the official announcement!
