Canon 100-400mm Mk II?

Tue Sep 20, 2011 12:10 pm

Well Canon Rumors has just released the patent details of a possible 100-400 mk II..

http://www.canonrumors.com/2011/09/c...100-400-f4-5-6l-is-patent-pending/

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 ...

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 want to try old 100-400mm L one day. Didn't use anything longer that 70-200mm.

Yeah, I think that's the case for just about everyone!

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.
