Anybody else getting the idea that 2014 is gonna be a Canon year in a big way?

This is cool!!!
If its at least as sharp as the 400 f/5.6 from 100mm all the way to AND INCLUDING 400mm, this may become another iconic Canon lens!
I would be prepared to sell my excellent copy of the 400 f/5.6 I have for this
There is very little to chose between the 100-400mm L and the 400mm f/5.6 L in the centres - see http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=14296.msg259688#msg259688
If the new zoom lens is only as good as the 20 year old 400mm f/5.6, then I'll give it a miss as it won't be much better than the current - we want something better.
Hi Alan. Some fair comment there. I can tell from personal experience that the 400 f/5.6 handily outperforms the current 100-400.
Read the review at Luminous Landscapes. Pretty much echoes what I've seen.
Not for me. They are very similar, and the actual lens tests show it. Luminous Landscapes is a good site, but they do not have lens testing facilities, its merely the perception of the evaluator.
But isn't perception what everyone here argues in favour of because measured metrics using testing in a controlled environment on websites like DxO don't favour Canon?
