Good find. Sounds very expensive. I need to save some more

the elusive Canon 200-400 was spotted during last summers Olympics and now it's come out of hiding again.
Will it ever be in actual production?

stay tuned

Did I understand him to say the IQ with the 1.4 in place is as good as the IQ with any Canon prime and the 2x? That would imply, to me anyway, that the IQ with the 1.4x takes a pretty strong hit, given most primes exhibit little to no decrease in IQ with the 1.4 yet it becomes noticeable with the 2x.

I think he said it when he was talking about the 1.4x bulge on the side.

What I heard was this lens with a 2x is just as good as any Canon prime with a 2x.

He also said that this lens with the internal 1.4x on is second to none .. i.e. better than a prime + 1.4x.

Ha! I knew I couldn't have heard him right and listened to it again and heard the same thing. I guess I was missing a sentence before or after.

I was thinking how could Canon let this guy make a video reviewing this lens and say something like that.

Such a cool lens, 200-400 and 280-560 in one lens. Plus with another 1.4 converter (so you don't screw up IQ too much) it'll roughly be 350-800 in such a small package!

Too bad it'll probably cost $10k+ :(
