3 confirmed rumors. Priceless. And what aperture would be the 400mm DO?

It's a Mk II...so it would be f/4.

just wait, it's less than 2 weeks away.

it seems so far that the nothing is coming out to replace this lens. it makes ya wonder if canon is looking at replacing it at all?

Since we are in the rumo(u)rs thread: f/1.0!!!!


Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!

As the owner of a current 100/400L, I believe its unlikely to be different. Certainly an constant f/4 across the focal length range would make the lens much bigger than the already weighty mk1.

They were talking about the 400mm DO lens.

Ah, I missed that! I played with the 400 and 500 primes as well as the 200-400 F/4 zoom supplied by Canon via Castle Cameras on Bournemouth seafront for the air display a few days ago. Beautiful pieces of kit but all massive and expensive, too massive and expensive for me I'm afraid.

I wonder if Canon would do something like a 200-400 f/4 instead of a new 100-400. I'm just thinking out loud in print. Maybe the range of the 100-400 is too great for much improvement.

I realize they have a stellar 200-400 with built-in 1.4X teleconverter but that one is out of the price range of most people who own the 100-400L, or that is my guess. I know it's out of mine.

It would still be a $6000+ lens... not in contention with the original or any of it's competitors. If you want a Canon 200-400/4, buy the 200-400L w/tc and don't engage the TC. Why would Canon make it easier and cheaper than that?

1Tanker, I was thinking about that was well. I guess the delay in an updated 100-400L has me wondering out loud. I'm not reporting a rumor or anything.

The 70-300L is an amazing lens so I'm hoping Canon can come up with something of that quality with a long range of 400mm. That is why I'm wondering about the range. Even a variable aperture lens would be fine with me if it's as good as the 70-300L.

As long as they don't do what they did with the 70-300L (making it incompatible with Canon TC's). ;)

With what i guess are a very very low number of DO lenses sold, I highly doubt canon would put any effort at all in a mkII .

since we're making up stuff why not an EF 100-400mm f/3.5-5.6 DO lens?

so what are the lotto numbers for this weekend then. :lol:

that was interesting. they are working on a replacement, what that would be only they will know. 100-400 DO would suit a lot of travelers that shoot sports or wildlife.
