Aha I identified one of the components; 'round screw with hole' = bicycle cantilever brake parts as shown below.
Probably there will be nano-coated dust repellent optical surfaces all over the new camera.
That would be a good thing.
BTW it is remarkable how good and businesslike the 5DIII feels after having shot with the Sony a6000.
Ha, Ha, Ha----I do not want to laugh, But want to cry, because I love my life better than just one MASTERPIECE of Photo.
Personally I think it's good to have another lens manufacturer starting up.
Looks like I am losing my religion.
The sony a6000 is on its way and with the adapter...who knows, I'll explore.
S___, why did Canon miss their chance?
Is there somebody out there who'd think that it would make sense to wait for the Canon version of the technically quite mature a6000?
All the EF lenses I have are compatible with the Sony with an adapter.
I'll get me a Sony!
Now in the mean time I'm killing myself with the prospect of this new 100-400, vs my affection for the old push-pull and how much I'd *really* like the power of f/4 and the option of extra reach of an f/5.6 [400DO II + 1.4x] (but that's a hell of a lot of 'extra' money) And no way I want to get a 7D MkII instead.
but again I found myself learning the painful lesson of cropped sensors.
From which perspective is the video foreign?...I am sure many on this site will find yourself just as foreign!
Oh, lighten up already. The guy has already sincerely apologized.
Third, the "jap" video is from Hong Kong, so in your parlance would be the ch--k video, don't be so disrespectful it is unnecessary and unbecoming.
I'm also keen to hear whether the performance at 400mm will be as good as every other millimeter on the lens.
I often wonder if some people actually skip the 100-399mm focal lengths on the lens and just use the 100-400 as a collapsible 400 prime.
(Thankfully, I am not afflicted with the reach addiction many CR forum dwellers have. I have little desire to buy this thing, slap a 2x on it and then put it on a crop body. But I do like Canon putting out better options for us.)
