Lenses / Re: EF 400mm f/5.6L IS on the Way?
« on: December 28, 2013, 07:08:19 PM »
The current 400/5.6 prime is already optically better than the 70-200/2.8L IS II + 2x TC, and the bare zoom is better than the bare 200/2.8 prime.

Which is why there's no need for a 400/5.6L IS if the 100-400L is replaced.  The version II will very likely be better optically than the current 400/5.6L, have IS, focus just as well if not better, have better MFD and be able to zoom out as a bonus.  Sure it will be expensive but who thinks a 400/5.6L II will come in under $2,500?  The zoom will sell more and therefore benefit more from the cost reduction you get from volume production.

I don't disagree, at least from the consumer's perspective.  The zoom would be more popular.   As I stated, from a business perspective, the current 100-400L sells well...very well!  By some reports, Canon sells more 100-400's than 70-300L's, despite the latter being newer and sharper.  If Canon has both a new 100-400 and a 400/5.6 designed and production-ready, it might make business sense to release the new prime first, wait a couple of years, then release the new zoom.

I'm an old man...I don't know if I can wait that long ;D

Coming from a T3i, I was pleased with everything the 6D has to offer and I didn't really miss the 5dIII's AF system.

Lovely shots.

They only get heavily discounted 6 months after I buy one ( I'm not joking) :'(
You and me both - looking at the current double-dip deals going on, I could have saved well over $1,000 just on lenses if I had waited 6 months...
If you waited, a significant portion of your adult lives would have been spent without these lenses ... Buying was clearly the right decision :)
That's exactly how I look at it!

Me too! ;D

I thought I'd add one of my own to all of these cute dog photos.

Does your dog bite?  (A line spoken by Peter Sellers in the movie "The Pink Panther Strikes Again")

Source" Wikipedia

Inspector Clouseau: [gesturing to the hotel's dog] Does your dog bite?
German hotelier: No.
[Clouseau bends down to pet the small dog; it attacks and viciously bites him.]
Inspector Clouseau: I thought you said your dog did not bite!
German hotelier: That is not my dog.

A 100-400L update supercedes the need for a 400/5.6 IS.

I believe this is what is happening.  The 100-400 is also getting heavily discounted. 

A new 100-400L is just around the corner and will effectively replace both lenses.
Many lenses are heavily discounted these days. That proves nothing.

They only get heavily discounted 6 months after I buy one ( I'm not joking) :'(

serendipidy, thanks for the nice comments.  I'm really happy with this shot, too.  I've gotten a lot of comments about the back being too dark, but personally I like the contrast and drama it adds to an otherwise simple shot.  As Gregory Heisler says in his new 50 Portraits book, "One of the keys to lighting isn't what you light but what you don't light".

The contrast is like a spotlight on a stage performer. :)
