It looks like Canon has decided to bless Canon shooters with some new goods by announcing the release of two new zoom lenses and a white version of the EOS Rebel SL1. The first lens is a full-frame f4 EF mount L-series lens that should be an alternative to their 16-35mm f2.8L lens. Built like other L Series lenses, it’s designed with weather resistances to dust and water when conditions aren’t always ideal. It also sports a nine blade aperture, two UD Elements, and three aspherical elements, which should help to create high contrast images.
Canon didn’t leave out the cropped frame shooters, announcing a new ultra-wide angle APS-C L zoom lens too. The new EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 lens is considered an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens, and as BH & H states, “The optical system comprises a “large-diameter” lens element, as well as one aspherical and one UD element to control aberrations and create high-resolution, high-contrast images. Enhanced lens coatings also improve color balance while minimizing ghosting and flare.”
You would think with the announcement of the two lenses, Canon would have called it a day, but they announced that they would release a new Rebel SL1 color option for Canon shooters in the US by releasing an all white version of the EOS Rebel SL1.
