Yesterday Canon released news of a new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens. This is the newest model of the lens I have been saving for. It looks like they made some nice improvements.
This news lens has reduced the minimum focusing distance to 3.9 feet. The new lens incorporats a fluorite element and a fifth UD element. The result is a better image quality with improved contrast and resolution.
DPReview.com has a good pre-release review of of the new EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens.
There is no price associated with the news lens yet and the release date is scheduled for April 2010. This looks like it is going to be a winner. If the price is not out of line with the current version of this lens it will still be my next lens purchase.
