Canon IS binoculars
Feb 1, 2012

Not quite a photography question, but it has some relevance

I recently bought a set of Canon 10x30 IS binoculars, which were so good I sold my old 20x50 set as it did not compare.

The Canons are bright, pin sharp and very usable thanks to the IS.

They are so good that I am tempted to buy a set of Canon 18x50 IS binoculars too. BUT.... looking at Amazon it appears these have now been out for almost 10 years.

Knowing the progress in IS systems by Canon, I'd rather have a newer version of IS. So, does anyone know whether the 18x50 model has been internally revised at all recently, or perhaps whether new models are rumoured?

For comparison, the IS system in my 70-200 IS f4 lens is so much better than the one in my 100-400 IS lens. The former being a much newer design/version of course.

I've trawled the web but could find no information
