The 200-400 would have to loose 90% of it's current value to become affordable and even then were talking over $1000.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Now you're grasping. It may become " affordable" for amateurs when a new mount is developed, and this lens is a pain to mount(think FD/FL lenses). :lol:

Well, that's why I said "fortunate" amateurs. :) If it went down to, say, $7k, and you already had a 300mm 2.8 IS and 100-400L, you could sell both of those, and at least be somewhat closer to owning one without laying out the cash of a new one.

The fact that it could potentially replace a couple lenses would help one be able to justify it.

My issue as of now is that I'd pretty much have to have the 200-400 glued to my camera all the time, as that would be the only lens I'd have besides the 40mm STM if I sold enough lenses to justify it....:lol:

Do you really need that focal length below 40, and between 200?

Everyone knows it's enough to foot-zoom back a bit, or stitch a pano if you haven't any wider lens :p

Besides - the 200-400 should manage nice low-distortion images that makes wonderful 100kx5k panoramas...
