New Canon 35mm f1.4

I expect we will see quite a few new lenses over coming years as Canon ensures all its lenses meet the demands of the new Canon EOS 5DS and 5DSR (the 50-megapixel DSLRs).

The 35mm lens is a street photographer's classic, producing very little subject distortion while including a little more of the surroundings than what used to be the standard 50mm lens.

Canon says its new 35mm f1.4 lens is the first to include BR optics, a new lens technology featuring an organic optical material, which has been engineered at a molecular level to help reduce chromatic aberration and produce sharper images – via its ability to refract blue light. The BR Optic is integrated into a compound element in the lens.

Canon continues that together with its lens coatings, including Subwavelength Structure Coating, the EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM delivers results with improved contrast and minimal flare and ghosting.

Price was not available, but the previous lens cost between $1700 and $2000 (online prices, Australian retailers), so not a cheapie, but no doubt a goodie!
