As much as I love my 400mm f2.8 IS II, I still couldn't figure out why the hood + case would cost $1300ish ::)

Maybe Neuro has the answer :)

Well, I could launch into a discussion of supply and demand, and the higher retail cost of items produced in limited quantities (replacements for damaged/lost items only, with no real 'standalone' sales), the answer is probably quite simple.



That logo is just really darn expensive.   :P

Of course :)
Beyond that, the hoods are made out of carbon fiber, which isn't known to be cheap, but the suitcase, well that I can't explain.  Also, be sure not to lose your lens cap because they don't give those away, either (for the old or new 600):

Yes....indeed
Last time I checked, it wasn't dust proof ;D

Agree.

I found having 70-200 one 5D III and 400mm one another 5D III will give little more flexible - even just a quick trip to local zoom.

I just don't see myself using the double strap BR with this combo

I'm slowly getting into wildlife photography. I like the idea shooting with 2 bodies - just to avoid lens changing on the field. Well, I think most of us already know, the weights of carrying two bodies with BIG white lenses.

As I don't think wildlife always means carrying tons of gear around and machine-gun photo the unsuspecting animals, I try to keep it light... and I fortunately don't have the funds for such gear in any case so that 6d+100L & 60d+70-300L is the max weight I could carry.

I try to predict what I'll encounter though as I feel carrying just one camera lets me move more naturally which is always good for health as it prevents repetitive movements and forced body positions.

This is good topic Marsu42.

I'm slowly getting into wildlife photography. I like the idea shooting with 2 bodies - just to avoid lens changing on the field. Well, I think most of us already know, the weights of carrying two bodies with BIG white lenses.

I'm currently working on a small project(will post some photos soon). My youngest kid is now in kindergarten. She doesn't want to sit in jogging stroller(big wheels) anymore.

Therefore, I decided to modify this jogging stroller and hopefully it becomes a "wildlife photography push/pull cart" by the time I'm done ;D

Prior to modification, I have tested this jogging stroller at Quail Hill, Irvine, CA. It's quite friendly to push. Plus, I can put snacks & drinks on it without worry too much about WEIGHTShttps://www.google.com/search?q=quail+hill+in+irvine&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=CjX-Ur24LdDloAT9xoLAAw&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAw&biw=1843&bih=863

I have ordered some hardcases and foams from BH. This project has just started last weekend, 20% complete. A lot of cutting and removing parts to keep the cart looks clean and simple.

Not a bad shot at all.  But I wonder why you would pair the 1DX with this lens?  If you need 600mm, it seems a big white, or a combo with a TC, would better serve the 1DX.  Looks like the Tamron is in fine form, though.

The 600mm Canon lens is $12,000+.
The Tamron lens is ~$1100.
The 1DX is $6800.

You can afford 2x1DX+Tamron for the price of 1DX+Canon 600mm.

It makes sense to have compact FE UWA lens instead of this.

My G.A.S doesn't call out for this lens.
+1 ... the whole concept of, a7/a7R is its compactness, but the size of this lens (which is just 1 inch shorter than the 70-200 f/2.8 L IS II) defeats that purpose.

My next trip to China is 2nd week of March. My co-workers and I are planning to take a trip to Yangshuo, China. Having a UWA lens for my A7r is a MUST, plus 3-4 spare batteries ;D
