Is anyone here serious about buying the 200-400 if we see a release in the next few weeks?I'm going to get either the 200-400 or the 400 2.8. I'm just a dad wanting to take photos so I don't think I can justify buying more than one big lens. If the IQ is as good as the 70-200 MK II then it will be enough for me to overlook the loss of speed from 2.8.
I'm worried about the QC a tad too as Canon has had many problems with new product launches lately so I might wait a year before buying.
Exactly. I don't think I can realistically replace my 300 2.8 and 400 2.8 though. In sports I need the AF sensor sensitivity as well as the wider than f/4 aperture. It would be an interesting lens though, for well-lit, outdoor sports. And, if you are a dad wanting to take photos, it would be an excellent alternative to the 100-400L zoom lens. We'll see what the price is.
