Lenses / Re: EF 400mm f/5.6L IS on the Way?

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. :)

That famous song "Leaving on a Jet Plane"  (a song written by John Denver in 1966 and most famously recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary) comes to mind...

as I recall the words are:

I'm leaving on a complain
don't know if I'll be back again

Jackson_Bill,

That is perfect (yes, I had to count them ;D). Great Christmas spirit. Maybe we could start a thread where all the 12 days of Christmas gets posted...sorta like a scavenger hunt.

Happy shooting in the new year. :)
