The Canon EF lens exodus is continuing, with over a dozen more being discontinued or slated for it at some point this year as the company rapidly pivots toward mirrorless and its RF mount.
Canon Rumors is reporting that Canon has discontinued over a dozen more lenses from its EF mount DSLR line, as it seems to be pivoting toward mirrorless with increasing momentum. In the latest round, a fair number of kit and lower-level lenses are getting the ax, but there are some more notable professional options, including the 300mm f/2.8L, 400mm f/4L, and 500mm f/4L supertelephotos and the beloved 135mm f/2L. Personally, I am bummed out to see the 135mm f/2L disappearing. It is certainly not surprising given its age, but it has always held a special place in a lot of photographers' hearts as an underrated portrait lens that gives a rather magical rendering. In fact, it was my first non-kit lens. It will surely be replaced by an RF option, however.
The good news for anyone who owns these lenses is that Canon is expected to continue service support for at least several more years, which isn't surprising, given just how many EF lenses are out there in the hands of photographers and how severely early discontinuation of support would affect many shooters. Head on over to Canon Rumors for the full list of newly discontinued lenses.
