Those 1.4x knobs and bulges are going to create challenges for compact storage of multiple lenses into bags.

I would be so intrigued by an L series 120-300 2.8 competitor! I've been tempted quite a few times over the past few months to pull the trigger on the Sigma, but haven't because of it's AF problems (which are even worse w/a tele converter).

scotty, if you're waiting for Canon to actually show up with one of these ... you're in for a long wait

Are they going to build in the 1.4x extender into the 800mm as well?  Maybe the 2x?

No, since it's already f/5.6.

I'd sell a liver for such a lens. (You can get by on just one.)

You have more then one liver?

If it was integrated it would make me think of upgrading. So long as the weight's below 3.5kg. :)

I donĀ“t want a EF 800 with a build in TC.

The prototype is not so heavy as the version one and has an improved IS system.

I heard they're going to kit this with the next Rebel.

I heard there will be an EOS-M + EF-EOS M adapter bundle with the 800/5.6 II.

That's not quite as silly as it sounds, a pro photographer I know has actually been using a Nikon 1 with his 200-400 for photographing golden eagles when he needs extra reach and the quality was actually better than I would have expected.

That's only because the pixel density of the Nikon 1 is greater than any other interchangable lens camera Nikon makes.  Putting a super tele on an EOS M is pointless because the pixel density is the same as the 7D (which is considerably better than the EOS M in almost every single way), 60D, T2i, T3i and T4i.
