EF 400 f/5.6 is the lens I'm most satisfied with.

Its been "top of the crops" for two years now, so until Nikon brings a D400 to the table, they sure don't need to rush out a 7D II.

EOS Bodies / Re: Do Canon still develop Full Frame Cameras?

I honestly think that Canon, like Apple, has began to / or already abandon the Pro market.

And all those new long lens (3,4,5 and 6oomm) announced aren't for Pros ? How about the 200-400 in developpement ? The 8-15 fisheye ?

That EOS 3D mockup on the front page also has an EF-40mm f/1.2 L  ;)

Cute  :)

Lets be honest the question we need to ask is... where is the professional sector going? The professional sector has been struggling for years. With the event of everything turning digital it has made it even easier for people to get into the industry and be good at it. Also making it very hard for pros to make as much money. Look at other companies that are struggling in their professional line up:

Apple - Apple's success and saviour was its professional following, they have now pretty much deserted these customers with pro hardware and software that is taking 2-3+ years to replace/update infuriating customers (2-3 years is a long time in the computer world). Instead they are concentrating on their consumer products, macbook pros and imac outsell mac pros 1000:1 the market isnt as strong in this sector anymore so putting money into it isnt as worth it. Upgrading them every 6s months makes sense and costs alot less because of the volume sales.....

+1 Best post I've read in a long time. Your analogy with Apple is spot on  8)

I did a soccer match last summer using my 400 f/5.6, and it was very good, but I found it just a bit long.

I would suggest the 300 f/4 if you want to stick to a prime, but if you want more versatility, the 100-400 or better still, the new 70-300 L would be great in my opinion.

You can always crop a bit too later should you want closer shots.

You could preset your C1 C2 and C3 positions to different exposures, giving you a possible 9 exposure variation ;)
