Is It The Last Chance to Buy Canon’s DSLR Lens?


Are Canon’s DSLR lenses over?

We’ve got some news for dental photographers who are planning to buy Canon DSLR lens: you might need to hurry up!

Rumors say, five popular lenses have been marked as “no longer available” at some retailers including popular optics like the 85mm f/1.2L USM II and the 70-200mm f/4L IS USM II. Luckily for us, working in dental photography industry, only the 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM will be withdrawn.

But what’s happening here? Back in 2020, as we reported, Canon stated that it would be ignoring its EF lineup to focus entirely on RF announcements. And as we couldn’t believe it then, it seems pretty official now.

The company reportedly started discontinuing lenses in February with the EF 40mm f/2.8 STM. That list has been growing at a surprising pace, with the 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM, 70-200mm f/4 L IS USM II, 85mm f/1.2L USM II, and 200mm f/2L I USM all joining inside the last two months.

Some of the lenses are still available, but only until they’re in stock. And will it influence us, dental photographers? We will keep you posted!
