Amazing how the tele-converter on it adds that much :/
Oh well Nikon fanboys can deal with that price while we have the 13,000 USD 800mm!

And I was wondering what the other lens they were announcing would be.  I knew the 18-35 was being redone, but the 800 was a surprise.
Canon 5D Mark III and Canon 60D; EF-S 10-22; EF 70-200 f/4L IS; EF 24-70 f/2.8L II; 580EX II.  Soon to add: 50 1.2L, 135 f/2L, 8-15L

No teleconverter is worth that much though!

I just wish Canon would release a 200-400 WITHOUT an in-built TC

16-35L, 24-70L II, 70-200L II, 100-400L, 50L, 85L II, 135L, 24TSE, 40, 100 macro, 18-55 II, 55-250 II, 600RT x 4
I come here to learn something new, not to learn how bad my gear is - I know that already ;-)!

This Nikon new 800mm is interesting thing. On Canon side many bird pros just start replace 800mm to 600mm II.

Well, that is as said, compared to the current Canon 800mm which has been rumored a long time to undergo the same weightreduction as the the other super-teles, then it will most certainly not be 13k anymore..

Seriously?  Canon people are making fun of a higher price over at Nikon?  Somehwere there is a pot calling the kettle black.

How much do you think the Canon 800mm f5.6 IS II will cost?  $24K?
