Just spotted this, and thought some might be interested... at $11~13k it's not the 100-400 replacement people have been waiting for though.

it'll be an amazing lens for sure, but if I'm spending ~11k it's gonna be the 400 2.8. :D

Alternatively, one can get the 200/2 + 1.4x & 2x TC's and have a 200-400 f/2~4 lens, for almost half that.

He says it's lighter than the 500 f4, which is attractive. Although we don't know if he means the old or new version. And if it really is $11k, that's only 500 bucks more that the 500 f4 II.

But I'm curious about the IQ with the 1.4x in place. Wish he posted sample images on his blog.

Looks quite small. Price is off the scale though.

I had a brief play with it on a 1dx. It was a fantastic combination. The 200-560 versatility that this offers makes it a must have or me. Pity I won't be able to afford it.

Haha, it's only February, which leaves a crap-ton of "later this year", and knowing Canon they tend to use such technicalities to their fullest.

Price is off the scale though.

Well...

Zeiss cinema glass - $15k to $25k (only lenses Zeiss itself actually makes)
Leica S glass and Noct - $5k to $11k
Schneider and Rodie 645 and tech cam lenses - $4k to $10k
HD 2/3" camcorder lenses - $10k to $30k

Canon originally started when it's founder decided to produce cameras that were cheaper than the Leicas of the time, that few could afford, and it's only thanks to the massive industrial power of Asian countries that we can have cameras as cheap as we have them now. Many people gasp at the thought of purchasing a $2000 lens, but in the grand scheme of things, it's merely the point at which lenses stop sucking and you can consider buying something actually good.

So for Japanese glass, it is rather expensive, but not absolutely expensive in a relative sense.

This lens is amazing...for its ability to never come to market. When it finally hits if it is commanding that kind of price it had better be bang it out of the park amazing if Canon wants anyone other than corporations to buy it.

I have used it on birds in flight. It does track rather well for a zoom lens. Its not cheap, but its really versatile. I think it will have good success, the IQ is good, not as good as the new super teles, but better than the old series.
