The recent disaster in Japan has heavily impacted the camera and lens manufacturers. We now know how badly. Some lenses will be delayed by as much as seven months. Here’s the current list from Canon.

The Canon EF 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye USM lens is expected to be available in late July for an estimated retail price of $1,399.

The Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS USM lens is expected to be available in late August for an estimated retail price of $6,599.

The Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS USM lens is expected to be available in late August for an estimated retail price of $10,499.

The Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM lens is expected to be available in December for an estimated retail price of $9,499.

The Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS II USM lens is expected to be available in December for an estimated retail price of $11,999.

If Canon updates this information we’ll post it here at Photofocus.
