Canon Hong Kong held a major exhibition at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre at the end of last month. It was mainly a demo of Canon current range imaging products including cameras, video cameras, lenses and printers. There was also on section displaying old and historical Canon cameras and a 3-D cinema showing a short 3-D movie shot with two high resolution Canon video cameras. Canon also took the opportunity to display 2 new prototype “L” lens, the 200mm f/2L IS USM and the 800mm f/5.6L IS USM. Both of these lenses were behind a glass showcase, purely for display only and not available for try out.
The 200mm f/2L IS USM will be a most desirable lens after the discontinuation of the old 200mm f/1.8L IS USM
Birders and sport shooters would love the new 800mm f/5.6 IS USM
This was the first time where users in Hong Kong could try out the new flagship 1Ds Mark III
A vintage Canon range finder film camera makes a strong contrast to the 1Ds Mark III
