Thanks. I did check into that actually. I shot a ton at 300mm, it's just that I had to keep cropping in post. So why not just shoot it right the first time?

<p>The new 100-400 does indeed exist and is being actively tested, however Canon is in no rush to announce the lens. We’re told that the current 100-400 still sells at an amazing clip and outpaces the 70-300L by a 4 to 1 margin.</p>
This is an astounding number if true.
Good Lord, people. If you want lower prices and/or better lenses, quit buying these lenses to simply keep up with the Joneses. And, quit listening to fanbois.
By all means...don't buy a great zoom lens which offers 400mm with IS, delivers excellent IQ, and costs only $1500. That will force Canon to release a better version costing at least $1000 more (and incidentally driving up the cost of the current version by a few hundred dollars).
Canon_convert, You didn't get it, now didn't you!
Anyways, I gladly accept that price and want to thank all the members of CR (smart ones: neuroanatomist and not so smart ones: you). Keep up the good work and happy shootings!
Neuro, you have a habit to answer with sails,
Not to be picky here.... but I doubt that Canoe will ever be number one in "sails"..... they make consumer electronics, not boats.....
Just when I got that 400 mm f/2.8 IS II...
