If Nikon discontinues the 200-400 there won’t be anything to compare with if you want that quality and want new. It’s back ordered now at B&H so the plan might already be in motion.


My point was there is no way this new lens will sell as well as the 200-400 did. That's the compare.

I guess it will sell as well as the Canon 200-400+tc has done. I can't say that I've seen any amateurs (even very serious ones) using either of the Nikon 200-400's in my limited experience - every one of those lenses I've seen out in the wild has been owned/leased by professional businesses

Got tired of waiting, so I decided to purchase Sigma 150-600 C, instead. Am I happy that I did!

Oddly, still carries the "New" Moniker, despite it's listing in a Museum.
Seems to be a bit of an indication of how Canon thinks.

In that listing, “New” refers to the style of the FD mount, not the lens. The original FD mount had a metal locking ring that rotated on the lens body to secure it to the camera. “New FD” lenses were more like EF lenses, where the whole lens rotates to lock.

I love my canon gear but Canon is missing the boat and not even on the dock.
Nikon keeps delivering new goods to the market while Canon re-do's old gear.

f/5.6 would offer a lot of AF advantages over a 6.3 counter part. That and the better consistency with canon vs third party AF would make this lens very attractive. Honestly though, canon wouldn't care if this lens cannibalized sales of the 100-400 ii, they want sales regardless of which lens it was. If it took a decent amount of sales back from tamron/sigma from their 150-600s then it would be worth the small cannibalization of the 100-400 ii. That being said, the 70-300: still finds a market despite the 100-400l ii, and I'm sure the 100-400L would still find a market despite the existance of a 200-600.

I bought the 70-300L after trying out both the 70-300 and the 100-400 II. I liked them both very much but the 70-300 is small enough to just go in the bag and be with me when an opportunity presents itself. The 100-400 is barely too large. If the price is good, I would not be surprised to find a 200-600 increasing sales of the 70-300 over the 100-400 in tandem with the 200-600 - except the 200-400 with the built in TC is really 200-600 and it's huge and costs $10,000. It's also f4 constant aperture.
