Lenses / Re: Lens filters or not?
« on: February 01, 2014, 12:07:31 PM »
A good filter is as much an investment as the lens itself ... I always sell a lens without the filter and keep it for continued use on another lens.

Ditto.  Even when I didn't think I'd need it, as was the case for the 58mm filter I had on the 85/1.8…then I bought an MP-E 65mm.  OTOH, I do have a couple of 77mm UV filters currently unused, since Canon seems to be releasing new versions of lenses with 82mm filter threads instead of the smaller ones of their predecessors.

A good filter will probably save the front element in an accident if no hood fitted

 Specs are always going to be less than current 5d series.

CPS membership lists it as a silver body ie non professional .

Probably inventory control. Have you checked age by serial no/date code?

I would send it back if the sticker was on the front element.

It would indeed be sad to see it disappear.  Its a fine lens, and affordable.

And so say all of us!

Got mine before ISII was launched.  Choice was between 2.8 and 4IS and eventually decided on 2.8.
Wouldn't mind swopping for ISII if Canon offer.

Canon U.S.A. Announces The Availability Of The Versatile EF 100-400mm F/4-5.6L IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens

MELVILLE, N.Y., May 22, 2013 – Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced a dynamic new telephoto zoom lens, the EF 100-400mm f/4-5.6L IS USM. Designed for use with all Canon EOS Digital SLR cameras, the new L-series lens has high-performance Image Stabilization technology, offering exceptional shooting flexibility and range, ideal for sports or wildlife photography.

To help deliver beautiful, soft, image backgrounds, the lens features a 9-blade circular aperture. The lens also utilizes inner focusing, ring USM, a high-speed CPU and optimized AF algorithms for fast and accurate autofocusing.

Using advanced optical materials such as fluorite crystal and UD glass, the new lens provides excellent correction of chromatic aberration throughout the entire zoom range, and delivers high-quality images with high levels of resolution, color fidelity and contrast. The new lens also includes dust- and water-resistant construction designed for extended usage under harsh conditions.

The EF 100-400mm f/4-5.6L IS USM zoom lens is expected to be available on the 6th Tuesday of November or when pigs fly over snowbanks in hell, whichever comes first, for an estimated retail price of $2,799.00.
