Following up on the thread I started a few weeks ago. Canon Rumors is reporting here:
that they got an e-mail from a guy who's allegedly been testing the Canon 100-400 L mk II. The main points (nothing really unexpected I have to say!):
- traditional zoom ring (no push/pull mechanism)
- slightly faster on the wide end (f4 instead of f4.5)
- latest IS (4-stops)
- weather sealing
- (most importantly) very sharp
Announcement is supposed to be coming in Feb 2009. Of course, take it with a grain of salt.
