Found this in part of a video posted March 18/2016. Im curious to know if anyone can identify or speculate on what it is.

To me it looks like a sigma hood. It also has the same dark finnish as a sigma.

Any ideas?

Yep!


That said, since I moved this thread to the predictions forum based on title,. ;)

... SIGMA is in position to add a new OS Sport version of their tired old 300mm f/2.8.

Dixie Dixon is a Nikon ambassador. She is going to use nothing but Nikon equipment.

The Nikon 200mm f2 needs an update. It's a fantastic lens, but the current version is 500 gr heavier than the Canon 200mm f2.

I'd like it to be a high performing 400 f/2.8 OS as I have the 120-300 f/2.8 OS and need more reach at times in low light.

I presume the new 500/4 isn't fast enough?

Nope - I'm often shooting gymnastics or dance at 1/800s or faster to freeze action so at f/2.8 the pictures are often => ISO 6400 so I wouldn't want to go any higher on ISO by going to f/4.

Id guess that they come out with a 200f2 before a 300f2.8...i'm not even sure if there's really a spot in the market for a 300sport

Considering the recent news I would be willing to bet they would release a 200mm 1.8 OS

An increase from f2 to f1.8 would make the lens about one kilo heavier. That's probably the reason why Canon didn't make an f1.8 Mark II.
