What do we need....
Still waiting for the new EF 600mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4x (600mm 4.0 / 840mm 5.6)

There is no need for a new EF 800mm /5.6
Ships in volume 2020... that's when the new 800 is needed. :)

Hand held test are largely pointless. Each person has their own fitness and strength level.

A new 400/4.0 is more believable than a new 800/5.6

When's Photokina again?

Made a reservation to get the first copy that'll land and already have a buyer for my 7D.

And I meant, if the maximum distance was 20m. I rarely encounter birds that close, especially the more unusual ones.
In which case I prefer the subject be that close. I dont bother taking photos of birds further than that as I'd just delete them anyways.

Also, when you get into these extremes, you need to be shooting in cold, clean alpine air, or humidity and other environmental conditions will wreck your image.
especially if the subject is ways away. I much prefer the subject be less than 20m.

Gosh, if I restricted myself to 20m I'd get almost no shots at all! I don't find air quality a problem until the subject is a couple of hundred metres away (in sunshine/warm weather) or more. Maybe it's just the different climates?
if your relative humidity tends to be 80% or greater and temp ranges from 35°c or greater with a lot of coal and diesel (think "rolling coal" trend in the US) emissions then it will be a problem

Btw your statement is confusing. 20m is too great a distance?

It will be announced and it will cost 2x what is being asked for the MK 1.

Have a potato!

Actual shipping date: Sometime in 2020

Ha ha - really hope not!
I'm sure it'll happen that way. Notice how many rumored lens replacements have been posted on CR? They've been rumored to come out every quarter or so for a few years already.

So I expect very much that a new lens will be out by 2020 or even 2019 for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Thanks rpt northstar and jarrieta

Setting: 1/400 f/8.0 800mm ISO 160 EOS 1D IV

It is actually my mother's grandmother who passed away in the mid-90s so I met her in my teens. Lovely lady, cemented me on my place in the world and gave me a context on who I am.

If your gear collection is substantial then buy an electronic dry cabinet.
