The Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM is on track to ship in December 2006 in North America, says Chuck Westfall, Director of Media and Customer Relationship at Canon USA.

A notice appeared this week on Canon's website for the Japanese home market, stating that the lens' release has been pushed back to mid-January 2007. And while this is true for Japan, the announcement doesn't reflect a global change in its delivery schedule, says Westfall.

The Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM was announced on August 23, 2006. Canon USA has put the estimated selling price at US$1599 in the U.S. Also in August, Canon unveiled the EF 70-200mm f/4L IS USM. This lens began shipping in North America starting in the latter part of October 2006.
