There wouldn't be such a drop in lens shipments if some of they lenses didn't cost as much as a car. Sorry, but $12k for the 200-400 is way out of my budget at this time. Same with Canon "adjusting their prices to match the market" So the 400 just became history unless I pick one up used.
Exactly. Can we get something that's more than $300 but less than $10,000?
I am waiting on a couple too (a better UWA, a new 400 5.6 with IS, a better 50 1.4) but there are lots of good options available now: 24 2.8 IS, 28 2.8 IS, 35 f/2 IS, 100 2.8 macro IS, the 24-70 lenses, 70 - 200 2.8 IS, the Tamron 150 - 600 , etc etc
