2012 is a big year for Canon. Actually, it seems like 2012 is a year they released a lot more new EF products than the previous years. Let’s take a look at what they are.
The 1DX and the new 5D compared.
- EF 24-70mm F2.8 II USM
- EF 24mm F2.8 IS USM
- EF 28mm F2.8 IS USM
- EF 300mm F2.8L IS II USM
- EF 400mm F2.8L IS USM
- EF 500mm F4L IS II USM
- EF 600mm F4L IS II USM
- Speedlite 600EX-RT
- Speedlite Transmitter ST-E3-RT
- Release Cable SR-N3
- Battery Grip BG-E11 (for the 5D Mark 3)
- Wireless Transmitter WFT-E6B (for the 1DX)
- Wireless Trasnmitter WFT-E2-E7B (For the 5D Mark 3)
- GPS Receiver GP-E1
- GPS receiver GP-E2
- Accessory Bracket AB-E1
That’s quite a lot of new products especially lenses for one year and the reason could be due to the the 3.11 devastating earthquake Japan experienced in 2011. Anyhow, I’m really glad Canon’s got some new products out in the market. It helps us expand our creativity.
