It looks like the new lens has gained 200g in weight.

Why would we need such a zoom? I would go with fix length...

It's one of Canons most popular lenses.

Version 1 was not up to the usual Canon standards, and one of the poorer L lenses they made as far as performance goes IMO. I see they went away from the push/pull zoom function. If this lens performs like the 70-200mm f2.8 L Mk II they will have a winner.

I see Canon Rumour are saying the price will be $2199, so I guess that probably over £2,000 here in the UK. I'd like to see the 'window' in the hood that allows filters like polarisers to be manipulated.


Call me Amanda please :)

I have not used the 70-300mm, glad to hear you like it. Nikon's first version of the 80-400mm was not very good either and the new version is much better from what i have heard and seen.

My guess is that it would have significant focusing breathing. Likely providing the equivalent of around 250mm at the long end when focused at the minimum focus distance.

Using the calculator found on this page: http://www.mhohner.de/​formulas.php (external link)
I found that focal lengths of 176 to 178mm focus at 0.31 magnification when focused at a distance of 0.98m.

Announced price of $2200. Lighter and smaller than the 150-600s. I sure hope it reviews well!

Overview
The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM telephoto lens delivers a superb combination of cutting-edge performance, compact construction and brilliant resolving power that’s great for sports and wildlife photography.

The telephoto lens features one fluorite and one super UD element to help provide impressive contrast and resolution with reduced chromatic aberration across the entire zoom range. Canon’s new Air Sphere Coating (ASC) helps significantly reduce backlit flaring and ghosting, while fluorine coatings on the front and rear lens surfaces help lessen smears and fingerprints.A 9-blade circular aperture renders beautiful, soft backgrounds, and a 3 mode (standard, panning and exposure only) Optical Image Stabilizer provides up to 4 steps* of image correction.

The Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM telephoto lens is equipped with a new inner focusing AF system to help ensure fast and accurate focus down to 3.2 ft. with a .31x maximum magnification. Usability enhancements include a rotation-type zoom ring with adjustable zoom torque for more precise, customizable zoom performance, a redesigned tripod mount that can be attached and detached without removing the lens from the EOS camera, and an all-new lens hood with a side window that makes it simple to adjust specialty filters-like polarizers-without the need to remove the hood.

Ruggedly constructed with advanced dust and water sealing for durability in a range of environments, the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM telephoto lens is a stellar performer with refined controls for a wide variety of situations.
