EF 400 f/4.5L IS [CR1]

Replacement or Addition?
Received a cryptic email saying that a 400 f/4.5L IS is in development. The lens would fit between the 400 DO and 400 f/5.6. Neither of those lenses would be discontinued.

I’m not sure Canon needs four 400mm lenses. Nor do I have a clue what such a lens would cost.

Interesting concept anyway.

Nikon Roadmap Leak
Everyone has been pretty enamored by the apparent Nikon Roadmap leak.

I’m not a big believer, that is A LOT of lenses to launch in the span of 18 months.

We’ll see though.
