1) Yet another reason why we need to bring back Karma ratings;
2) Somebody has too much time on his hands;
3) The tripod ring would never work;
4) Given the anticipated cost of the II version, I'm not sure I care what it may look like.

Please make me a real one. ;)

He is just a teen having some fun...no need to be too harsh in the comments.
I think his original title was misleading and was in poor taste, but he took the comments and changed the title...so I have no problems with the post as it stands now. Also, he took the input on what the zoom may look like and seems to have made changes (agreed, still very fake looking...but it is still an effort...fake pictures, however rudimentary, still take effort) ...lets not stifle creativity.

Good try Jan, I am afraid the zoom is going to look a lot stubbier than your sample...hope ya enjoyed the photoshopping ;)

There you have it folks! A prototype photo of the new 100-400mm from Canon!

Sorry guys, it's a fake that I created ;)
Although maybe the MKII will look something like this!

Why does the silver band on the lens say 200mm? If you wanna fake people out, you need to do a MUCH better job. :P

Sorry, but the attempt is pretty lame.  If you're going to put up a fake 100-400, your fake should show focal length markings somewhere.  No numbers around the zoom ring?  More importantly, you're showing a non-extending zoom and it's too short to be 400mm (unless it's a DO lens, in which case you've got the wrong color stripe).  Better luck next time.

This is humorous! The lens is too short? It's a picture of a fake how do you know the dimensions? You're right about the tripod mount not working because again it's a fake. I don't know why people are upset about this post, kudos to you for doing something canon is hopefully doing making a lens people want! And if the weather is crappy don't go shoot, I can't wait for April for the first cars and coffee!!

So I take it quite a fair bit of CR doesn't take humour very well?
Come on guys the poster was just having fun and well it's fun to see people throw out ideas.
Stop criticising so harshly.  It's only a picture.

Image manipulation is a very important part of photography.... ability to use tools like photoshop is a great photography skill..... we learn by doing, and sometimes what we learn is not what we set out to learn.

Good for you!

Oh, didn't realize you could click for a larger version. I see ZOOM, but it doesn't say anything else...

The fixed hood is interesting. Not sure I'd go for that...

Thanks. I honestly don't see the problem with making this. I remember someone made a 24-70 f/2.8L IS or some zoom lens and it looked legit. Did he get battered on? No.

I'm a fresh member here at CR but many users seem too uptight. Go over to POTN where users seem much more friendly. Unless your all pissed because you were hoping the 100-400II was real.

The hood was meant to be detachable  ;D But yet again it's a fake.

As far as I am aware, all "L" lenses come with a hood (if one can be used with the lens, anyway) and a pouch or other container. (The 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS II comes with a very nice zip-up white semi-stiff-fabric carrying container.)

Also, some time ago on here, it emerged that in some markets (far-east, IIRC) at least some of the non-L lenses come with hoods, but not here in the UK.

Its not hate ... it is pure jealousy ... jealous that they couldn't come up with an equal or better idea. I thought your post was fun ... but I still feel April 1st would have been more fun, coz you would have made fools of a few jealous folk ;) Cheers.
