Here is a link of shop in (ebuy like).The price is just referrence. It is better to ask some Chinese to help you to buy who owns experience. Some has been smuggled from HK without guarantee. Surely, it is most cheap. You need to check them whether second hand, and believe Canon qulity well. Hornestly, I had bought one  5D2 smuggled from Hongkong one year, and it perfect.

You have to understand the mindset of us techno-geeks (assuming leecheeyee is one also). If it's more than 6 months, it's not new. If it's more than a year, it's starting to get aged. If it's more than 2 years, it's positively ancient.

From your signature:  5D mark 2, 5D mark 3, EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM, EF 135mm f/2L, EF 85mm f/1.8

24-105, released in 2005.  135L, released in 1996.  85/1.8, released in 1992.  Dude, you better throw that old ancient crap in the bin and get some new lenses.   :P

Let's talk about how to take a good picture.
A good picture must have a good subject firstly, and then composition to picture, shut down the shutter.  Finnally, sofeware provisionning. Every step would be effected to our work. As a tourist, a powerful DSLR with convenient carry is important. Sometime, we have to get a faster auto focus function with light weight. So, we have to upgrade our device every 2,3 years after new version releases. Am I right?

Note that the 100-400mm lacks the seal at the mount gasket that would otherwise make it a 'weather-sealed' lens like the 28-300mm.
Why, in your opinion, the 100-400 lacks this seal?

Timing.  Canon started releasing 'weather- and dust-sealed' lenses in 1999, and the 100-400mm is from 1998 (whereas the 28-300mm is from 2004).

As 100-400 v1 is too old to get, I have to wait.

Isn't the rumored 100-400mm a f/4-5.6 as opposed to a f/4.5-5.6?  If the ver II is indeed a f/4-5.6, this lens will be heavier and bigger than the ver I.  I also seem to remember reading here that the rumored price could be $3000+.  Given Canon's track record of pricing for new lenses, this price might happen.  I'm in no rush for this lens as I am quite happy with my sharp 100-400 ver I.

It would be the same weigth I guess.  If the new verson reach 3000+ USD, it is a little high gup to get it.

Even I am not a rich experience photographer, I find some mistake in Canon product strategy. First is the 50mm f/1.4, second is 24-70mm f/2.8. You can see  Sigma 50mm f/1.4 is better than EF 50mm f/1.4. And from Rumors today, it said that  Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VC is more sharp than EF 24-70. The more important thing is that Tomron len is with stabilization feature. The price is around 1200USD. The new EF 24-70 II is around 2200USD. Compared this, I think most friends would select the front one. Please check the link. I am planning to buy EF 50 f1.4 firstly. At the end I change my choice to Sigma. The 24-70 lens, I think I would do the same. Let's back to 100-400mm II. I hope Canon understands what happen now. Don't let his fans lost patient in his market strategy.
