So pretty!

I'm tempted on replacing my 400mm f/5.6 with the MK 1 once the price drops a bit more.

What are everyone's thoughts on the release price? Pushing $7k feels quite steep to me, even for what is sure to be a great piece of glass.

That said, I can't wait to see some of the results that come out of this one.

I almost bought the Mk1 before I added the 300 2.8. The 300 2.8 is a great piece of kit even with me but I always wondered about the DO. for me every decision is weight based. I come from a big backpacking background where the lighter the gear is the more it cost-you'd be suprised how much gear we hike with now is cuben and carbon fiber, e.g. lightweight lenses cost.....though this Mk II weighs a bit more with the IS. Honestly I thought the DO Mk II would come in around 8-8500$.

If it performs very well with 2X TC III, I will swap my 300 f2.8L II with this baby. Can't wait to see some samples with both TCs

It's $430 more expensive than the outgoing model. As long fast-ish lenses go this is cheap.

Can't wait for Canon CPS to get some so I can try it out :D

EDIT: Actually, I just checked and the 400mm IS DO II is already on the list of Canon CPS USA's evaluation list, not sure if it's available immediately tho

Interesting. Amazon now states this on the 400 DO II:
This item will be released on November 24, 2014.
The operative words are 'will be'.
If so, and if Adorama is on the same page, I should have this lens in my grubbies by next Wednesday :)

^Totally different ends of the glass spectrum, but that's the date they gave for the EF-S 24mm pancake, which started shipping on the 13th... So who knows, you might get it sooner!

I still wonder why Canon upgraded this lens. It wasn't wildly popular in the 1st version. Maybe they really have pulled something out of the hat with the diffractive optic magician. I can see the 100-400 upgrade, seems everywhere I go I see that lens while I've never seen a 400 DO out and about, and I only know one person who has the 1st gen.

T minus two days and counting. Why do I think I'm the only one pouncing on this lens?
I can understand the financial reluctance for those living in the UK with the huge price penalty, maybe in europe too.
