No, not the 100-400 as a kit, but a new lens otherwise.
Well, they just updated the 18-55 and 18-135 lenses within the last year; maybe they'll do the 18-200 too, who knows. And they already have a good 17-55 and 15-85, not to mention a 24-105 that works well on crop. Not sure what kit lens they could put out that they don't already offer.


15-60 F4

Nice!!

I'm sure an upgrade on this lens will be a big seller, but for someone who has a 400 5.6 prime, I'm not excited.
Canon are missing a proper upgrade path from the already existing 400 f5.6s. A £4500 400mm F4 prime with 4 stop IS, lighter than 300 2.8 as a replacement for the DO would fill that gap nicely, and be a excellent match to the new 7D if it turns out to be a mini IDX. I could get excited about that.

So agree! Wish the 400f4 DO wasn't so pricy.

I might go with Sigma 120-300 f2.8 this time. I''m willing to loose the 100mm in reach, but gain more in light for indoor shots. I can always crop in PP since I'm only shoot raw. ;)

Is that lens supposed to be pretty good? I really haven't used sigma lenses. I wonder how well it would take a tele converter?

A new 100-400 L is probably the single lens I am most excited about.  I use the current version extensively but would love to see 2 more stops of IS, faster AF, and slightly better optics.

Agree completely but want it to NOT be push-pull. Push-pull zoom lenses were a great idea in the days of manual focus, when push-pull was to zoom and rotate was to focus.

How about a 100-400 with internal zoom like a 70-200. That would be sweet!

100-400 F4 without 1.4 extender, Would be a good alternative to the 200-400 maybe half the cost?
Same constant aperture, and a 4x zoom range instead of 2x for half the cost? A built in TC doesn't account for that much of the cost!

A replacement 100-400 will not be f4 at the long end, unless its bigger and more expensive than the still missing 200-400. There's a need for a lens the size/weight/price/focal length range of the existing 100-400. That means any replacement will be f5.6 at the long end.

(The price will be about double the existing model  :-\)

Lol you're right half the price of a lens that's not available for sale for another that's just rumored is just silly thinking. Of course a built in teleconverter doesn't make much of a difference in price of a lens and there's probably not much extra engineering involved!   :P maybe they will release a 100-400 NON L lens like when they had the 100-300s

Will the rumored 7D come with a new kit lens?

Highly doubt it, it's way to expensive and heavy to become a kit lens

Ha that was my thought, 100-400 kit lens. I want this to happen!!

Lol oops misread that, well I will take a 7d2 with a 100-400 II then! There's my kit.

Love my 100-400, would appreciate better IS, full sealing, and optical improvements. If it's as sharp as the 70-300L, awesome.  Hope they keep push-pull, but could learn to live with rotating extension.

Expensive, yes it will be.  But probably worth it.

100-400 F4 without 1.4 extender, Would be a good alternative to the 200-400 maybe half the cost?

Ha ha ha.  100-400mm f/4 means the same front element size as the 200/2, 400/4, 200-400/4, etc.  Would be a $7K lens easy.  Get off this, folks, it'll be f/5.6 at the long end, and likely close to $3K at that.

That's fine with me if its 5.6, I highly doubt it would any faster at the long end isn't that why canon makes those primes? Just figured if it had less options like the rumored 200-400 it would be cheaper.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D2 refurb or new 7D as backup to 5D3?
« on: March 21, 2013, 07:50:42 PM »
I bought a new 5d2 and I love it, I almost hate looking through the viewfinder on crop bodies now. I haven't owned or used the 5d3 but I really doubt the 5d2 would be worse than a 7d. I'm pretty sure people used the 5d2 for many weddings and got great photos, I've used the 5d2 at weddings and loved it, wish it had that silent shutter like the 5d3 though.

Ha, well thanks for your opinion guess I can start saving or wait till the guy wants to let them go for less so if they do die it won't be such a loss.
