Good point, it's unknown what Canon will charge for something like that new. Hopefully they don't go too high!

Old news - LINK

that one is pretty old news... born 12/06, died off 2/2009 ;)

I'm not sure many thought the new super telephotos were gonna go up as as much as they did either, but it basically let me use the original model for FREE!

I think it would be cool if Canon re-vamped the 24-105L in the same way they have the new 24-70L. Improved optics, IS, AF speed, better aperture mechanism and coatings. Then a new 100-400L and 24-105L would be an awesome combo, covering 24mm through to 400mm with just two lenses. It'll be a very versatile combination and certainly would be a popular travel combo.


That was my combo, using both Mk1's. It's great! Just wish I had a spare FF body though to fit the 24-105L on!

Sigh. Just what I need, another mark II lens that is double the price of the mark I :)

with current canon pricing this new lens will end up costing 3,000.

The Nikon 80-400 is approximately $2700 and from the reviews it seems to be tack sharp especially on the longer end. I think if anything Canon's version (if it ever comes out) will be in the price range or even more expensive.

I can't wait for it to come out soon enough, I am dying for a longer telephoto and since all of Canon's lenses in this range are absolutely dated I am afraid to pull the trigger. i feel the new revisions are around the corner or should be.

I hate the IS on my 100-400, the IS is useless, if the new 100-400 ends up costing $3,000, I will sell my 100-400 and just get sigma 50-500 OS.

Have just sold my 100-400 as was a soft copy (no, not user error), and will make do with my 70-200 and 1.4x.

Quite a lot of used ones coming on market (maybe people hoping new version coming soon) & price dropping, so thought I may as well sell now.

Just hope I don't have to wait for too long for the new version..............

Following recent trends; buy a 100-400 now; and it will be worth more after the mkII comes out as it will be so much more expensive.

Besides, just inflation will raise the price significantly over the next four years until the new version is released.

really, the current 100-400 is incredible, why upgrade. I used it last weekend indoors at the zoo

Out of curiosity, had you sent it in to Canon to see if they could adjust it for improved performance?

At times my 100-400 blows me out of the water, and at times it is frustrating due to slower AF (which also causes sub-optimal AI-servo operation) (probably being f/5.6 at 400mm not helping), a tendency to focus on a background object rather than the item of interest (happens with birds in trees a fair bit, annoyingly), and yes, overall softer than my 70-200 IS II (well duh, the 70-200 IS II is the sharpest zoom lens Canon offers, AFAIK).

I'd be OK with a 300-400 f/4, if Canon could swing that for a fair price. I realize that the primary factors driving optics are the biggest aperture at the longest FL, so maybe that design isn't much less expensive/complicated than the 200-400 without TC. And I don't see Canon releasing even a refreshed 100-400 f/4.5-5 for less than $2500. I am happy to be surprised, though... ;)
