Title: The EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Has Arrived!
Post by: Canon Rumors on May 31, 2013, 10:53:47 AM
Retail Version!
I was sitting around staring at the ceiling today, then the doorbell rang, and behold, the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x had arrived. A great sadness poured over my wife’s face, as she realized I would be gone all weekend.

It’s good to know that it’s actually real and shipping to retailers, it looks like it’s going to be a fun weekend!

I’m also planning to head back to Kenya in June if everything lines up, as it will be the perfect place to put this lens through its paces.

Less iPhone 5 photos of the lens and more photos from the lens! What a tease.

Number pad and I don't need to take my keyboard away from the desk. Batteries are annoying.... lots of reasons really. :)

It looks smaller than I imagined it, is that the 21" or 27"?

That's worth answering the door for, eh?

I think you might be gone longer than a weekend. At what point should we send a search party?

Trying...NOT...to....be...jealous....

Forget it.  I am.  ;D

Looking forward to some images.  I too agree that it looks a bit smaller here than what I expected, although I'm sure adding the hood will probably change that tune.

And not to mention the usb ports for card readers :)

On topic: can you see any physical differences with the prototype you tested a few months back?

A great sadness poured over my wife’s face, as she realized I would be gone all weekend.

Odd ... my wife usually smiles when she knows I'm going to be gone for awhile ...

She would have a sad look on her face, however, if I bought one of these monsters, and she found out how much it costs!

(Back on topic) That lens looks plenty freakin' big to me!

Oh...I thought you were going to say, "...as she realized our checkbook was lower by enough to go on a three week multi-island trip to Hawaii."

Comparing it to the size of the keyboard, I am pretty sure it is the 21"

Wow, on LR they got the 200-400 at 400 f/4 to have essentially the same imatest results, center, average and corner as the 400 2.8 II has at f/2.8!!
