Want.


My entire hobby of gear lust has temporarily been shifted into overload. Please be patient while my mind tries to get back onto the road to recovery. We do apologize for any inconvenience this may cause....

That'd be awesome, but big and expensive. What would be your guess price tag...$8500....or do you think it would it sit next to the 2-4f4 price tag of $11,000?
The 300II sits at $6100 and your lens would be a markedly more complex design.

I would hope it would be more like $6,500.00-$7K (street)

Think SIGMA 120-300mm f/2.8,. only a little lighter. (Canon makes them lighter most of the time)

Sigma had this lens back in 2004,. I am amazed that Canon has not doe it yet.

EDIT, oh wait, your having the 1.4x inline like the 200-400mm? Now you've lost most of the buyers due to weight and cost IMHO. Yes, It would be more like $11K based on the exorbitant price of the 200-400mm. It would be almost the same size and weight.

IMHO the 200-400mm is extremely overpriced.
In fact the 200-400mm @ f/4 ( - the built in 1.4x) is virtually the exact same lens element math that one needs to make the SIGMA 120-300mm,. which costs less than half and weighs a good deal less to. The internal 1.4x is a cost weight booster to be sure.

I think a straight 100-300mm f2.8 IS (or 150-300) would be really popular, and would sell way more at, say $7500, than one with a built in 1.4x pushing $10K+. That would put them on the used market around the $5500+ price range.

And I bet it'd pair really well with the mark 3 extenders.
1.4x = 140-420mm f4 IS
2xIII = 200-600mm f5.6 IS

Sweet
