Weedy Sea Dragon
I went for a walk today, with the intent of taking pictures of snow-laden trees so I brought along a wide angle zoom and some pumpkinseeds to snack on. I stopped to take pictures and pulled out my bag of seeds for a quick snack and had a few chickadees show up.Cool! I have never experienced anything like that
normally I would laugh at the idea of songbird photography at 40mm.... But with these birds there was no problem getting close enough....
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.
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.

Nice shots, what city?
That's exactly how I look at it!If you waited, a significant portion of your adult lives would have been spent without these lenses ... Buying was clearly the right decisionThey 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...
Hi all, hare are some photos from the sunny islands of Trinidad and Tobago.
QQ...very nice portraits! Beautiful!
I thought I'd add one of my own to all of these cute dog photos.

Welcome to CR DemiseAngel.
It's beautiful ! Well done Dustin.
Many lenses are heavily discounted these days. That proves nothing.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.
Fishing shot from Mississippi - liked the fall colors and reflections
