Whenever I have used my 70-200 I am always forgetting to zoom. Sounds ridiculous I know, but the first lens I bought along with my 450d/XSi, was the 100-400 and and the push/pull is such a natural way to zoom to me.

Using a long lens is so much easier with a push/pull

...just saw this on canonrumors >>>

First Image of the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II Lens

IMAGE: http://www.canonrumors.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/canon_ef100-400mmII_001.jpg

Judging by the image, everything we were told recently about the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS has been correct. I’m sure we’ll see more photos of the lens shortly, as I expect it to be announced very shortly.

It better be priced right, otherwise the Sigma 150-600 S will just destroy its sales...

If it is as good as the Nikon 80-400 it will sell by the shed load!

Given the great IQ of the recent tele zooms I suspect it will be excellent. If it handles TCs well then it will not have any problems from the 150-600s, save the Sigma Sport if it has outstanding IQ.

Unless the price is very high as some of the recent releases have been. If the new lens comes in significantly over 2k, the IQ better be stunning.

NOW, this is potentially exciting. :)
of course - with the caveat of excellent optics
and "decent" price
just think - we will have some serious choices under the $3000 mark (assuming it is indeed under $3000)
1.) 100-400 v1
2.) 100-400 v2 (potentially)
3.) S120-300 +/- TCs
4.) S150-600 sport/Contemporary
5.) tamron 150-600
6.) 70-300 L IS (on the shorter end)

That is some serious choice.

the next level will be the "big whites" - but for people like me who use longer FLs less often - I have to say that we have a rich selection....

now what about that 11-24?? :)

I agree about the price point it needs to land in and the Sigma 150-600 being a serious competitor. However, this lens looks to be much smaller than the Sigma so I suspect many will end up choosing it for this reason. Thoughts?

Im guessing this lens will be roughly $1750

I second the "smaller" aspect of this. I have been hauling a 150-500 around and it is just too awkward. If i can get the reach and IQ in a compact form I would pay "some" premium for that.

Would be a nice range on the 7d2 if it works OK with a TC.

I love the compact size of my 100-400. If the 100-400II is even more compact, then I will probably buy one. Compact size is very important to me when travelling by air.

I'm trying to use a 150-600mm with my 7D and it's not going very well if I'm honest :( I much prefer my 70-200mm + 1.4TC and then heavily cropping. But a sharp 100-400mm with panning IS would probably be perfect. The only thing that concerns me slightly (actually 2 things as the price may be a bit steep too) is will the front focus* ring make the lens less stable to hold. ie will my arm be stretched that little bit further from my body?


*As pointed out by Neilyb I mean Zoom ring not focus ring


Call me Amanda please :)

I would say front is the zoom ring. Also not the tightening ring found on current 100-400, but the new one should not be push pull????

Oops, thanks for pointing that out, I meant zoom ring. Losing the plot due to advancing age and lack of tea.
