Lenses / Re: A New EF 400 f/5.6L Before Photokina? [CR1]

5.6 is too slow for a prime....... like the 800-5.6?

the 800 f/5.6 too slow ? wow i guess you've never tested it

this new 400 would be great if it's a weather sealed lens with the IS II (and a price under 2k of course)

but if the new unofficilay announced 100-400 f4-5.6 L IS is as good as the 70-300 f4-5.6 L IS in term of sharpness and quality of the image the choice will be a tough one !

5D mark III
7D mark II (if the upgrades to the actual 7D are great) or 1D mark IV

17 - 40 F/4 L
70 - 200 F/4 L IS
100 F/2.8 L IS
300 F/4 L IS II
400 F/4 L IS (not DO)

and at least 2 camera traps made with canon dslr like 550 or 600 bodies and 10 - 22 E FS lens...

Great news !

By our count we hear at least 6 new lenses for the EF & EF-M mount before the end of  2012

I hope for a new 300 f/4 or 400f/5.6 but i doubt if the 100-400 f/4-5.6 is as good and sharp as the 70-300 f/4-5.6 !

it depends a lot on your budget ! a decent one (under 1500$) and you should target the 400 f/5.6 L. A very good one  (under 5000$) and you should think about a used 500 f/4 L IS and a great one (above 10k) buy the new 500 f/4 L IS II or the 800 f/5.6 L IS !

Of course, all these answers would be completely different were this a tropical rainforest rather than a NEOtropical rainforest.

I'm from the old world ;)

A 17-40 f/4 L would be a great addition on your 5D mark III !

And don't forget your rocket air blower ;)

Hi guys,

I'm back for a few advices... A friend of mine, who's actually in neotropical forest told to me that the 5d Mark II coupled with the 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS is just awesome for most of the wildlife there, especially mammals ( a bit short for the birds).

I was thinking about buying the 300 f/4 L IS to complete my 70-200 f/4 L IS but this option my be an interesting one since the weight and mobility are huge factors there !

Or should i wait, i'm not in a hurry, and see if the new 100-400 f/4-5.6 L IS is what i need ?

Thanks, Vincent

That would be great ! I only hope it won't cost more than 2000 € :-\

Do you think it could be the new lens that replace the 400 f/5.6 and also the 300 f/4 >:(
