Canon Introduces New L-Series EF Lenses

Today, Canon announced new lenses as well as new versions of both the 1.4x and 2x teleconverters.

Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM lens - retail price of $1,400


Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM lens - retail price of $1,500




Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens -retail price of $7,000


Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens -retail price of $11,000




Canon Extender EF 1.4x III & Canon Extender EF 2x III - retail price of $500 each




What do I think? I honestly don't know. I don't see myself picking up any of those telephotos, mainly due to them being way out of my budget. If money wasn't an object I would pick up that 300mm f/2.8L II in a heartbeat! I was really hoping for updated versions of the 24-70 f/2.8L and 16-35 f/2.8L myself. The 8-15mm fisheye sounds cool, but I would have to play with one to see if it is really worth it to pay the premium over the standard fisheye lens.
