Yes, it's really big.

I would guess it's one of 50/1.2L, 85/1.2L, 24-70/2.8L or still 24-105/4L ? But won't know until full moon .. let's wait.

Over at Northlight Images, they have tinkered with the image so you can see the areas that are covered on the body like the previous image, but also you can see three areas on the lens rim that are also covered up. They wouldn't bother to cover those up if it wasn't a new lens and not something Canon already has out.

Re: the moon camera looks attached a big aperture wide angle lens

With my calculations, that lens is about 89mm in diameter

As we know EF 85 1.2 diameter is 91.5mm
EF 50 1.2 is 85.4mm
EF 35 1.4 is 79.0mm
EF 24-70 and 24-105 is about 83mm

IMHO it's looks like zoom... new one I think.

Greater than 90mm?

There a lot of lenses that are just under 90mm.

Considering the number of times they've used the 16-35mm in product shots its most likely. The 16-35mm 2.8 has a diameter of 88.5mm

The 85mm 1.2 is close as well at 91.5mm.

Re: the moon camera looks attached a big aperture wide angle lens

You think that IS will rise 24-70 2.8 diameter from 83.2mm to 89mm?

If You look at "70-200 2.8" and "70-200 2.8 IS" You'll see that IS version is thicker on 1 mm.

pay no attention to him

IS has never to my knowledge changed the lense size

Re: the moon camera looks attached a big aperture wide angle lens

But if it's just the 16-35 II, then why bother to cover up certain areas on the lens? I can see not giving away certain aspects of the body and slowly reveiling them, but if the lens on it is just something that's already out, that doesn't seem to make any sense.

Probably because the bright white lens text would distract from the cool dark, lighted by the moon effect of simplicity they wanted for the campaign...

I recon it's a 16-35 II L

It's not an 85mm II L becuse the hood atachment is different. It uses a hood with clip buttons. The lens has a single hood attachment ring that runs all the way arounf the lens. The lens in the teaser picture has a lug attachment (align and turn type like a 35L, 50L ect). Given the size, it's probably a new lens. It's too big for a 24-70/2.8. It could be a new 35 L (f1.2 or f1.4) or it could be the rumoured 35-70 f2 zoom. It could as already suggested be the trusty 16-35 II L.
Who knows at this point in time?

The UK Canon.co.uk page has a different picture. If this is the same lens, then it certainly points to a zoom becuse the way that the text is arranged (aka 24-105L text ring around the front element).

Re: the moon camera looks attached a big aperture wide angle lens

I think that canon lenses go to change the L series from 77mm to 82mm, like 16-35 2.8 II. The lens of the new 5d it's a 24-70 2.8 II.

New generation of lenses, II L lenses.

Re: the moon camera looks attached a big aperture wide angle lens

new ultra wide angle to compete with nikons 14-24 f/2.8.

my guess would be a 12-24 f/4.0L
