Old lenses Canon will phase out

Back 4 years ago I made a list of old lenses Canon will phase out and since then a lot of things have changed making an update needed.

End of Life
1987 EF 15mm f/2.8 Fisheye
1987 EF 28mm f/2.8
1987 EF 135mm f/2.8 with Softfocus
1988 EF 24mm f/2.8
1990 EF 35mm f/2
1990 EF 100-300mm f/4.5-5.6 USM
1998 EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM
1999 EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM
1999 EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III
2001 EF 400mm f/4 DO IS USM

Series II, L upgrades & IS version
2010 EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS USM
2011 EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM
2012 EF 24mm f/2.8 IS USM
2012 EF 28mm f/2.8 IS USM
2012 EF 35mm f/2 IS USM
2014 EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM
2014 EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM

Nearing end of life. Expect any of these lenses to be superseded in 2015

Zoom
1998 EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM
2004 EF 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM

Prime
1987 EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro
1990 EF 50mm f/1.8 II
1991 EF 100mm f/2 USM
1991 TS-E 45mm f/2.8
1991 TS-E 90mm f/2.8
1992 EF 20mm f/2.8 USM
1992 EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
1993 EF 50mm f/1.4 USM
1995 EF 28mm f/1.8 USM
1999 MP-E 65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro Photo

L lenses. Year cut off is 2002.
1993 EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
1995 EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM
1996 EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM
1996 EF 135mm f/2L USM
1997 EF 300mm f/4L IS USM
1998 EF 35mm f/1.4L USM
1999 EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

Personally I'd like to see a EF 135mm f/2L USM replacement come out with IS and a faster f-number like say 1.8 or 1.4.

As to pricing hopefully Sigma, Tamron and Tokina continuous to help in reining in Canon's MSRP.

Re: Old lenses Canon will phase out

Hi dolina, I've often thought about buying an extra lens like a 24mm f/2.8 usm and an extra 50mm f/1.8 II as I use three each on three different cameras. Ha,,no extras. I recently, like 3 years ago. Started using the used market and am going 100% good stuff, good prices. I might look at a few hundred lenses and buy one. The best deals have been the two used cameras I took in 3 lenses with. I got a 28-135mm lens that is very sharp. My grand daughter is very happy with the other ones and says so. I hope what u say isn't a trip up to raisethe prices on newer lenses. Theone that hurts to look at is the 100-400L IS. I love that lens,

Re: Old lenses Canon will phase out

Do you have a business reason to get multiple copies of the same lens?

Re: Old lenses Canon will phase out

Hi dolina, I use two infrared type converted cameras with one color. I like to stack them and blend the world of invisible light into a picture. My cameras keep getting older faster then the lenses. distortion is kept to a minimum using the same lens making it easier to run an alignment script. It puts them up in the layers column ready to go and mask together. I have a pretty good used reference in Japan who will look up lenses and sell them, they have been good so far. Talk about business, it's almost funny how fast it all is as my printers are really old. A rear request for an infrared print couldn't make it out of my room now. I borrow my wife's. incredible how you have to track ink down and new printers are all laser or all in one One other thing I left out, it works better if you don't have to resample the size over or under 2 meg a pix from your sensor size, it just works better to be close.

Re: Old lenses Canon will phase out

I would be interested to see if they "improve" upon the MPE. Had rumours last year it was phasing out - not sure it will though.

Re: Old lenses Canon will phase out

Hey Chris, I remember when you posted about the MPE. I scratched for money and bought one as you know. I have started the finishing arangement of my room full of camera stuff. I like X2 out side with flash but notbeyond yet. Would love to finish out with my light box and have a good still life set up. I didn't see the 100mm macro non IS up there listed. The non IS is good enough for me,
