Lenses / Re: A New EF 400 f/5.6L Before Photokina? [CR1]
« on: September 07, 2012, 09:08:27 AM »
if both are true rumors (a new 100-400 and a new 400), can we expect an inner zoom on the 100-400 or the same one used on the little bro' 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS ?

if it's true and not another rumor i guess the price will be around 2000$ with an IS II and weather sealed ! i hope it won't be more :-\

Since when was it unoficially announced ?

It was kind of a joke since a new version of this lens is almost announced every year ;)  But 2012 will be the year !

Replacement lens that currently costs about same as 100-400.  At f/5.6 why would anyone want this lens?  Help me understand benefit over 100-400?   

If you arlready have the great and light 70-200 f/4 L IS a new 400  is a better choice in my opinion

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 !

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.

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

And don't forget your rocket air blower ;)
