Wow guys thanks for all the useful info! I guess my biggest fear now is buying the lens and then seeing Canon update it within the next year
I think the chances of a unicorn taking the presidency of the united states in the next year is more likely than an upgrade of this lens being announced let alone updated... I dont even recall seeing a patent for an update
It's a very good lens. I did sell mine in favor of a 100-400L, but the driver was needing the extra 100mm (and I really needed more, so I eventually bought the 600/4L IS II).
Be aware that you'll know the IS system is working - it starts up with a 'clunk' before settling down to a low growl.
When do you guys think we will see reviews and and price announcement?
I have only seen one first impressions / hands-on sort of posts, like this:
(...photos 6 and 7 are of it as well)
The first is clearly the best read to date. Those guys, like DPReview, get lenses early for eval, so they'll be following up soon.
I haven't seen price yet.
