Canon has today unwrapped three new EF lenses, the first of which is due on sale in April.
First up are two lenses billed as the world?s first ?wideangle primes? with built-in Image Stabilization (IS).
They are the 24mm f/2.8 IS USM (pictured) and 28mm f/2.8 IS USM. Canon claims that the IS gives the pair a four-stop advantage over their non-IS counterparts.
The 24mm will deliver the 35mm viewing angle equivalent of a 38mm lens on DSLRs using an APS-C sized imaging sensor, while the 28mm produces a 45mm focal length, according to Canon.
Each boasts Super Spectra coatings to help reduce flare.
The 24mm f/2.8 and 28mm f/2.8 are both due out in June, priced £749.99 and £729.99 respectively.
Canon has also announced the 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM which is a revamped version of the firm?s current 24-70mm f/2.8L USM.
Touted as a ?compact? standard zoom, it houses a redesigned optical system featuring two Ultra-low Dispersion elements and one Super US aspheric element designed to help reduce chromatic aberration and ?colour blurring?.
Sealed to help fight against dust and moisture the new 24-70mm includes a nine-bladed circular aperture and minimum focusing distance of 0.38m, plus manual focus override when using AF.
It is due to hit the UK high-street in April carrying a £2,299.99 pricetag.
The lenses are the latest in a flurry of product releases that are expected to coincide with the CP+ Camera & Photo Imaging show which takes place in Yokohama, Japan later this week.
