Further rumors are doing the rounds that Canon is discontinuing EF lenses, with two more DSLR optics being added to the three that were apparently discontinued earlier this year.

It now appears that a pair of short telephoto optics – the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L IS II USM and Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L USM II – are on the chopping block. That's according to a report by Canon Rumors, claiming that two of Canon's workhorse lenses along with the popular pancake have joined the the discontinued list.
