"Super-premium" L lenses?
Sep 13, 2012

I swung by York Cameras in London the other week to see if they had received the new 24-70 II yet (they hadn't) however the owner said something I found quite interesting. Apparently at a Canon dealer event a Canon rep said that the 24-70 II is one of 5 L lenses considered "super-premium" (my word), or in a different league to the other L lenses when it comes to optical quality. At that price I guess it should be!

These three were definitely on the list:
24-70 f/2.8L II
70/200 f/2.8L IS II
100 f/2.8L macro IS

he thought the 50 f/1.2 was one of them (but wasn't certain)

and I can't remember the last one (want to say the 85 f/1.2 II but I might be making that up).

Can anyone who was there confirm the correct list? Pointers to any links would also be appreciated. I have trawled around the web for a good while without turning up any references to this. Apologies if I've missed it.
