so feed my addiction, please   ;D

These dated comic references….hmmm……perhaps something ala Phineas and Furb

"Aren't you a bit too young to be shooting with a 1Dx and a 400 2.8 IS?"

"Why yes, yes we are."

ok last one from P and F

Nagging Wife: What, did you expect the Canon 200-400 f/4 with 1.4x extender to just fall out of the sky?

I think so Brain, but if Friday is black and Tuesday is fat, what would that make Sunday?  NARF!

Now that the Olympics have come and gone.  Those who got to play with the 200-400, thoughts?  Comments?  Samples?

have seen a few thoughts, but am curious still.

There are tons of these lenses in London currently, I expect an announcement this fall and pretty fast availability.

Fingers Crossed and starting to cramp now!!!

Just out of curiousity I will be attending the Olympics next week (on vacation) and I am a CPS member in the USA.
Can I get access to trying out a supertele or two from my CPS membership, or do I need a press pass as well?

More then likely, I would say you need a press pass.  For I shot the US Open Golf once and Canon was there, but they were in an area where you needed press credential to get to.  They are set-up to help the photographers who are covering the event.

Also as for Lens Hoods, I normally don't keep mine on any of by big glass when I shoot indoors.  Never see a need and it becomes more of a burden and can interfere with my fellow photographers...

A new 100-400 would be appriciated, but I still think the 200-400 will start shipping before the announcement!

Hope your right about the 200-400, so want to get my hands on it!!!

Lets hope the 200-400 f4 is one of the len's announced. I need one for October as im off to the forest to shoot bears, with a camera not a gun.


400 + 1.4x is not enough for close ups at a safe distance of bears in the wild.

You need 700mm or more in glass.

Doesn't that depend on your definition of "safe"?

Safe is having someone with you that you can out run.  I still hope it is the 200-400, for I will be shooting Bears as well, but they come from Chicago...
