CanonRumors heard a story of a Canon rep talking about a new Canon 30mm f1.8 that’ll be coming out to compete with the Nikon 35mm f1.8.
I like that the lens would be 30mm instead of 35mm. The extra 5mm can make all the difference when you need to go wider. It doesn’t sound like a lot, but trust me, it can be.
This lens will be a big seller for Canon if it’s true. Nikon’s 35mm f1.8 has been very popular and is a stellar optic. If Canon can make one as sharp, it’ll be a winner.
The existing Canon 28mm f1.8 isn’t bad, but it could be sharper. A fair bit sharper actually. I expect more from a prime lens than the Canon 28mm f1.8 delivers.
Let’s hope the Canon 30mm f1.8 is coming soon, and let’s hope it’s sharp enough to draw blood.
