Possibility of opening up to f/4. I guess the release of something like this is certain to mean that the 200-400 will be at the price people are looking at.. And I wonder if this will be a nice upgrade from the 100-400 current.

I believe the 100-400 MkII only when I see it in real live ... People have been talking about that upgrade for years. I would buy one right away.
And yes ... this would also mean that the mentioned prices on the 200-400 are for real, which was obvious for me, cuase we are talking about a totally different lens segment here ...

Yeah, I think that's the case for just about everyone!
Quoting spencer (Reply 2): Perhaps I'm the only one that loves the current 100-400? Never let me down and always gives me good results at 400. Would an extra stop help me, possibly. Do I need it, no.
I love my 100-400 too, just that the ISO limitations of my camera points towards the advantages of having a better IS system. Then again, if I coupled the lens with a 5DII or something, I doubt I'd be disappointed with what I can achieve with it.
