This lens is intriguing indeed. Neither of my current long zooms are vacation-friendly (70-200/2.8IS; 100-400)' and the DO version too expensive and wanting.

Definitely one of the weirdest lenses made..looks like a 70-200 with the front cut off. I wonder how sharp it will be compared to 70-200's...

yea it does look a little funny.

its like they took the 70-300mm 4-5.6 IS USM lens and slapped on a white barrel and called it an L.

Well the current 70-300mm can look a little bit soft at times, so if they can improve that and have a newer 4-stop IS and keep it maybe at $600 range then it will be something good.



5D3 and a few lens

$600....hmm..if i had to put it somewhere, since it has better range than 70-200 and IS..im thinking ~1000-1250...but thats just a guess

Retail is going to be $1500, so street should be what, $900-$1k?

That is one of the weirdest looking lenses I could imagine.

I'm intrested. But it has to be sharp and not just a white bodied 70-300.
