    Looks like they announced a bunch more lenses too:
    70-200 2.8 OS
    17-50 2.8 OS
    8-16 (crop body ultrawide)
    50-500 OS

    All the links should be at the bottom of the DPreview link

    If it's anything like their 50 1.4, it's going to be a great lens. :cool:

    finally. I've been waiting for a canon 85 1.4

    also hope the bokeh is like the 50 1.4

    any price speculations?

    I'm very excited for this. Kinda looking to replace my 85 f/1.8 that I use rarely.

    i realize that, but still its very old and outdated for its $1200 price tag. If nikon made an af-s version with an internal motor for that price i would buy that.

    and for this, i would say it won't compare. it'd compare more towards the older 17-35 af-s and 16-35 f/4vr
