Interesting. This lens is definitely due for a revamp!

At nearly double the price of the current version I will keep the one I have. I also (taking a large spoon full of crow as I say this) have come to appreciate the push/pull zoom for finding and tracking flying birds. My keeper rate has more than doubled, if not tripled, over my Sigma lenses in this regard. I have also found that what may be an old and antiquated IS system will still hang in there with the newer OS Sigmas. At the projected price I think I'll just hang onto my current version and save my money for the 200-400 f/4L or the 400 f/2.8L IS II.

Yes, for the double price... it will be a dream lens, a lens that continue to be a dream even if it is no longer a rumour.

This is the most promising rumor I've seen about this one so far. If they can get it out with those upgrades, at that price, I'll be snagging it for sure! Having picked up the 70-200 MkII and seeing what the optics and IS in that unit are like, it would be worth while for me to have the same things in the 100-400; as it's the lens that I do 85% or more of my shooting with.

I'm a bit confused by the "after the 200-400 f/4 is officially announced". I thought the press release, earlier, about that lens WAS official...

while it seems like a kick butt lens - $2800?!?!
Is Canon just putting out white L lenses with increasing price tags to see how fanatic hobbiests will get?!?! (the pros can justify things better than a GWC - like me!!)
the 200-400 is over 7g (speculation), the 70-200 II increased from $1800-->$2500
this is jumping a bit over $1000....
geez louise!

Excelent;

I rent the Old version for a Trip to Yellowstone and it was SUPERB...

Now I can consider this new version;

I have a question, it's gonna be a f/4 at 100mm ¿That means I can use my Ext 1.4 III without loosing AF? or I'll loose it anyway because it's a f/5.6.

I think Canon have seen how much Nikon can charge for their lenses and still sell them, so have decided that all new releases will also be stratospherically priced.

Frankly, until I break/lose/have stolen my existing 70-200 and 100-400, I'll be sticking with them.

It means that you'll lose AF at most anything above 100mm. Unless you also pick up a 1 series body, as well.

I'm sure the pin tape trick for keeping TCs from reporting to the body will still work, but the AF will still be somewhat rocky.

Hum, I was looking at the Sigma 150-500, but I really like the Canon 100-400 more, probably I wait even if I cannot use the 1.4 TC, at least with AF.

Thanks.

It's a rumor. You're asking how it actually works? For all we know, there may not be such a lens!

I would LOVE an affordable Canon 500mm. 11K out of the equation.

Already a 400 f/4 IS - the 400 DO. A mythical 400f/5.6 with IS would cost >$2k, but something I'd consider.

FWIW, I don't hold much credence in "rumours" from CR. Anyone at Canon signs a nondisclosure agreement and would NOT be telling the CR guy anything. So, how creditable is his source? The site predicted the 1D X a few days b/4 the announcement.

If there is any truth to any of the rumours posted there, Canon is going to be busy....1D X, 5d III, 7D II, a few more Rebels, 200-400, 100-400 II, 24-70 II, 600II, 500II, 14-24, new EF-S lenses. Somehow, with all the ongoing earthquake issues in Japan and now Thailand, it all seems difficult to pull all this off.
