From what I've seen out of the N***n 200-400, it's pretty awesome. I wonder how many pro N***n shooters use this lens? Can anyone shed any light on that?
Realistically, how many shoot with multiple flashes using ETTL?
Many who have mastered the world of multiple lights have done so using them all in manual mode.
If everyone in the world refuses to buy this lens, boycot canon, lets see who's more cocky at the end of the day.
Lack of IS is on this range of focal length may be a good thing. Quality wide angle lenses are hard to design an manufacture compared to telephoto. So if Canon had tried to jam in IS, one of the two will happen - a) sacrifice in image quality. b) heavy monster with even bigger front element and at least costing $2000 more. . . . Logic of 24 and 28 IS primes within the zoom range - If they pulled off stellar IQ wide open with IS, its a win win. Those you don't absolutely need the zoom can have excellent IQ with IS at relatively lower prices, although I agree it would have been better $200 less.
I see a lot of people having a crack each way. Here's one of mine. This is a full 360 degree panorama done in the southern hemisphere. Star trails done with stars intact and real. Done with 17TS-E. 2hr Exposure. No fisheye used! To my knowedge, this is the first time a full 360 pano with star trails has ever been made without the use of a fisheye lens.
In my 5DM2, I get a 3800x2500 pixel RAW file, which is just fine for up to 20x30 poster-size prints. How many people need to print larger than that? What I gain is far less noise at 5000 ISO, (plus my CF cards & disk storage go twice as far!
Personally, I will not use it at all. Remember in the film days, almost every mid range and up camera comes with an 'Ever Ready Case"
drummstikk--you're arguments are valid to a point, but not everyone's needs are the same. I am shooting cyclists going by at 30mph, and the more I can capture individual athletes the more shots I sell.
I need to upgrade, BADLY. A 5DII is not a sports camera and that's currently what I am stuck shooting with.
