I'm thinking I can sell it for a 7dii and use the rest to invest in a prime lens which I'm missing in my collection.
5diii to 7dii?
Here's the link to Canon product page, old MTF lower part of page...
This new lens costs only a couple hundred more than the old.
Surprised no one has related this:
Fred Miranda earlier today posted that he has seen the MTF on the new lens and it is excellent, even with a 2X Extender.
He also states that the price will be "way lower than your expectation".
His NDA should be up about 4AM PDT.
(See his second post first page)
Groundbreaking? Not so much when compared to current technology but when compared to the original 7D, which remember is what it is replacing, I think it will be a huge and welcomed improvement...
My 70-200 went down (literally), the strap broke. So I needed a longer lens, and my 100mm IS Mcro was just sitting there begging to go to the game...

Seems I'm not the only one to look at this lens and wonder, why?
I have been holding back for a 7Dii as backup to my 5D3 but with these specs it hardly seems worth the wait
Looks like Canon Shares the boat with Apple - Not really pushing innovation anymore ? I love my gear, but the other candy stores looks to have much better lollies
Unfortunately the other "lollies" don't mount to "L" lenses... Personally, I think that these specs look awesome for a crop camera. I'll be adding one to the pair of 5D3's I already have. I considered the 70D, but the slow (relatively) FPS and the slightly crippled feature set kept me away. This new 7DII will likely have the same user programmable menu system as the 5D3 (maybe even better) along with the AF system to match or beat the stellar 5D3... sounds like a winner to me.
Question on one of the specs listed: what is "Lens electronic MF"
A setting that allows you to turn off manual focus on the small handful of lenses that use electronic MF (aka focus by wire) – currently that's the 85L II and the STM lenses, but also includes some pre-IS supertele lenses and a couple others.
If Canon had a much better 100-400 (similar to the raves I have heard about the new Nikon 80-400) it would make my travels a lot lighter. Then I would have a hard decision. Keep both the 200-400 and improved 100-400 or sell the 200-400.
I believe a number of nature photographers feel the same way.
Indeed. For travel, I often opt for the 70-300L as a much smaller alternative.
