At last I got a chance to do some serious BIFs.
Shot with 5D3, rented 200-400 f/4 Canon.

Good shots lion rock.

I got 1.4TC III on order. Can't wait to put it on my 400mm

Just got the FE ZEISS 24-70 f/4 OSS lens ... didn't get a chance to take it for a "spin" but here are a few images of how the lens looks like

Compared to the kit lens, it seems like a bit thinner & a bit longer ::)

Pls let us know how you like it? from handling to IQ :o
I haven't made any worthwhile photos with it yet, but the build quality is not at all appealing ... my EF 50 f/1.4 has better build quality than this "ZEISS" 24-70 f/4 lens ... the build quality of this lens is a bit of a let down for me ... but I suppose they had to keep the weight down and thus the feeling of cheaper build quality  :-\  ... or am I just unfairly comparing it with Canon L lenses  :-\ ... but again, to me, it does not even seem to match even the build quality of my EF-M 18-55 IS STM.
I'll shoot some images in the morning and see how it performs optically.

O-no :-\

I hope you can return it if thing doesn't work out. As an owner of 50mm f1.4, I know the build quality of this lens(not that great).

The Zeiss FE 55mm is solid - from build quality to IQ.

Should I cancel my pre-order?

A 600mm f/5.6 prime has to have good IQ. It doesn't necessarily need to be as good as the 600/4, but it has to be better than the alternatives. For such a large objective element, that is no easy task...
We are definitely in agreement...

For a 600 F5.6 prime to sell, it has to be better than the alternatives.....

At twice the price, it has to be significantly better than the Tamron... But I doubt they can hit that combination of quality and price...  As mentioned above, nobody thought they could hit the quality/price on the 150-600 and they proved us wrong...I am more than willing to be proved wrong again, but I'll believe it when I see it.

Shot this with the Tamron today at 600mm. Pixel peeping on an obsolete crop body :) To significantly beat this at a reasonable price will certainly be a challenge.

Thanks for sharing Don Haines :)

How is the AF speed @ 600mm?
The autofocus speed seems a bit slow, but to be fair about it, I am using a 60D and every EF lens I own focuses faster on my friends 5D2 than my 60D...

Thanks Don,
It's a $1000ish lens(@ fraction when compared to Canon 600mm II). If IQ and AF speed is good enough for everyday shooter, I think this might be a winner for many(including myself)

I just ordered the Canon 1.4TC III. Can't wait to it on my Canon 400mm f2.8 IS II.

Are they try to compete with 1D X?....if yes, then I wish them "best of luck", just like the Df

I got to play with 1D X for few times through a friend - this thing is like a killing machine. Canon needs to make a lens that look like this to match with 1D X.

How is the AF speed @ 600mm?

Are you shooting with the camera in RAW or jpeg?  Part of the reason I want to get this camera is because i've read that the jpeg files straight out are pretty good.  I do all of my "serious shooting" with my 5dIII in raw and then post process  but I kind of like the idea of having a camera that I can use casually and get good pics straight out without worrying about when I'll have a chance to edit them later.  Everybody I talk to says they love it and it seems like the ideal "walk around" camera.  I find myself not bringing my 5dIII certain places just because it can be a bit cumbersome.

Below is JPEG straight out from camera - ZERO EDIT. The photo has been resized only to post here.

Mark my words, if Fuji ever make FF mirrorless(similar to x100 series & same EVF as Sony), I will sell my A7r and stay there permantly. I LOVE the body design of x100s. I wish A7r has same EVF as x100s, keep the system even more compact.

he said that he thinks for noticable better image quality there is no way then buying the EF 600mm f4.
a 400mm f2.8 +TC would not yield noticable better image quality. can´t say if that´s true (he is not a pixelpeeper looking at his images at 200% all the time).


Just to touch on this point.....your friend is wrong....I own the 100-400, 600II, 300II and now the 200-400.  The 300II with the 2.0TCIII and the 200-400 at 560 with internal engaged are both much sharper than the 100-400 and therefore much sharper than the new Tamron.  As far as actual centre of the frame (most used for wildlife shooting due to cropping all the time) the 300II + 2.0TCIII and the 200-400w1.4TC are on par with the bare 600II.  Tough to believe but true none the less.  The 200-400 may lag a little behind (and isn't quite 600mm) but the 300II and 2.0III is for sure on par. The 400f/2.8ISII and the 1.4TCIII would be at least equal to this also.

Here are two examples from the 300II and 2.0TCIII:

Thanks for sharing arbitrage :)

I just ordered 1.4TC III. Can't wait to put this on my 400mm f2.8 IS II. Will share some photos next week.
