I have been waiting 2 years for this lens. Hope it is finally true. Can't stand the push/pull design of the current version.

Two years, that's like last week to some of us who've had the "old" one for coming on two decades.

As for the push pull, it would be a shame to lose that feature. This is the BEST feature of this lens, and to want this lens,. and not want to push pull is like wanting a slow Porsche. If you want slow, just get the VW.

The 100-400mm has a lot of room to catch up among today's lenses. It can be weather sealed, it can get better IS, and faster AF, it can be made to be super sharp. All of this would be a plus, but if they ditch the push pull, I am keeping the old one for sure.

I completely agree. I've had several twisty zooms, and hate having to twist the barrel to get the FL to change. I've had a couple of push-pull zooms, and don't even think about the pushing and pulling I do - it's so intuitive that it precludes conscious thought!

Unfortunately, my newest acquisition has a twist zoom. I'm going to have to force myself to get used to that, as there are no push-pull alternatives.

It'll make me sad if the upcoming Canon 100-400 has a twisty zoom. In fact, that would probably be enough of a drawback to keep me from ever buying one.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

The tammy has criticism that it doesn't keep up with active subjects as well as people would like. I have also seen criticism about the sigma that the picture lacks...punch.

I wonder if the shorter (and lighter) Canon would be an answer to these criticsms as well.

On the other hand, Canon will be praised or criticized by one group of people which ever the choose to go in regards to the push/pull vs rotating zoom mechanism. I can't remember another issue that polarized people so much on a lens!! :)

Anyway, until an official release statement, I think that most of us will remain cautious in regards to getting our hopes "up"

I hope and really expect it will have weather sealing, 4 stop IS at least faster AF and be sharp as the recent tele zooms. I am on the fence of how I would react to no push-pull design. Mine stays at 400 most of the time and I have had twist zooms. I found no advantage to either.

More EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II Talk [CR2]

A few more people have confirmed that select Canon pros around the globe are testing the new EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II. Also being confirmed is that the lens resembles the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS in its design; with the zoom ring being at the front element side of the lens, and the focus ring near the camera mount. We were also told that the new lens is “quite a bit smaller than the current iteration”, although this could be subjective depending on the photographer. If it is actually smaller, then I expect the front of the lens will be telescopic like the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS.

Availability will be at the end of the November according to one source. There has been no mention of pricing or filter size for the new lens.

More to come…

I can see some people not being happy with this design.

I've been interested in the new 150-600 Tamron and tested it against my 100-400L and 1.4x converter. Amazingly, even when the Canon image is magnified that little bit to get both images the same size, the images are no different. The Canon might even have the edge in sharpness in the corners.

So I remain very happy with my 100-400.

Here's the quote from canonrumors >>>

"The reliable Digicame-Info has given a mention to the coming announcement of the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II. This backs up our recent posts (here & here) stating the lens would be coming in November.

Below is a rundown of what we’ve been told about the lens.

Smaller than the current EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS
Will retain the same aperture range of 4.5-5.6
Zoom ring design instead of push/pull
Similar design to the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS (zoom ring at front of lens)
Lens hood is designed to make using polarizers easier
Lens hood will be ET-83D (from DCI)
New thumb screw design on the foot on the lens
Obvious optical, AF and IS improvements

We’ve had no mention of filter size, or more importantly the price of the lens. I suspect it’s going to cost a fair bit more than the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS just to separate the two lenses in the lineup."

Not if the replacement is visibly sharper, then all is forgiven.

the push pull doesn't matter to me. but then I don't have that lens in the first place.

if the rumour is true and it's going to be smaller, I wonder if it will be starting at the same price point?

I am a PP fan.
I too would miss this feature and would have to see some vast improvements in a new twisty lens to otherwise surrender what I have.
