bummer... the 35L was 1.229 a week ago on BH, adorama and amazon... up to 1299 because of the awesome rebates!

hahaha I tried to pull the trigger on 2249 XD6D+24-105mm seems to be 2449.
yeah, i think its a typo. would have made the lens cost only $370. lol
It's $2449 at B&H too.
If this lens with a 2x tele competes with an 800mm prime super tele, then it has justified its price tag. This lens with the 2x mark iii essentially would allow a photographer to replace a few, several thousand dollar lenses (along with their weight and bulk). Hopefully, this will get some good super teles on the used market with lower prices so us regular folks can afford to pick up a super tele. Not all of us are brain docs ... lookin' at you Neuroanatomist!Yeah but a 400mm f/4 with a 2x multiplier becomes a 800mm f/8, and not many cameras focus at that aperture, or focus with at most 1 AF point. And to be fair, this would compare to 800mm with a 1.4TC (1120mm f/8)
How do you reckon it will stack against a EF 70-200 mk.ii +1.4TC?
