Canon will soon announce the EF 11-24mm f/4L lens, which is now rumored to be released for a price of $3,000.
This is supposed to be Canon’s “year of the lenses”. Although a fair amount of optics have become official throughout 2014, the company’s fans have expected a lot more units for their EOS cameras.
Two lenses, which should have been launched by now, are the EF 11-24mm f/4L and the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II.
It appears that the wait will be over soon, as the wide-angle zoom version is on its way for a price around $3,000, while the telephoto zoom unit is expected to be released on the market by the end of 2014.
Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L lens price rumored to be $3,000
Photographers will always appreciate a lens that delivers high image quality. However, this usually comes at a cost, which usually means that the product will be quite expensive. Such will be the case of Canon’s upcoming 11-24mm optic, which is said to retail for $3,000.
The Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L lens price is rumored to sit around the aforementioned mark, which lots of users will consider expensive. Nevertheless, this is an L-designated product, so the optical quality will be among the highest possible at this time.
A photo of this lens has already showed up online, but its announcement and release dates are unknown for now. Still, sources are reporting that the optic will be revealed sometime in the near future, therefore we should not be surprised if it gets announced within the next few weeks.

A long-rumored product that should have been released years ago is the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II. The lens will replace the original model, which is available for about $1,500 at Amazon following a $200 post-purchase rebate.
This product has been mentioned multiple times by the rumor mill and several versions have been patented during the past four years to say the least. Furthermore, Canon officials have confirmed that this lens is in development and it should be revealed soon.
A more exact timeframe for its release date comes from the rumor mill. It is said that the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II will be announced this November, while its release date is set to take place this December.
