New 100-400 to Launch with EOS 7D Mark II [CR2]

(1/22) > >>

Canon Rumors:
Tweet Finally?
An update to the 100-400 has been rumored for years. It sort of reminds of the 24-70 replacement rumors. Apparently patent applications for optical formulas don’t guarantee a speedy release. You can see another patent here. A very solid source says as it stands, a new 100-400 will be announced alongside the EOS 7D Mark II in the late summer/early fall. Even if the availability of the 100-400 is not immediate, Canon feels the two products will fit extremely well together from a marketing standpoint. Just a hunch about pricing, it won’t be cheap. See Nikon’s new 80-400…… :) cr

lol:
I'm really interested to see what improvements they bring. Probably 90%+ of my all time Canon shots have been with the 100-400, and a lot of those were with a 7D.

Is this where we start the twist vs. push pull zoom arguments on the lens? Again.

Daniel Flather:
Will the rumored 7D come with a new kit lens?

Thyg0d:
Would appreciate if they could get it to stay @ f/4 all the way but from the looks of the patents
it looks like it's going to be another f/4-5.6..
From what I've heard the current 100-400 is kinda prone to suck up dust and moisture..
Gotta friend who has one though and he's very satisfied with it..

Highly doubt it, it's way to expensive and heavy to become a kit lens
