Upgrade  path.->means the former was sold for the latter.

I wish it was 14mm instead of 16mm. Kind of a deal breaker for me.

I'd preorder it if it was 12mm.

This looks like a great addition to the EF lineup!  However, I am concerned over the photo of the box.  Obviously, this was taken with a lens that has an incredible front focus issue.  I think we ought to discuss this.  What's the AFMA needed to fix this?   Which technique or software would you use to assess the problem?  The picture should be much clearer.  And the real deal breaker is whether this will be shipped with the newer "pinch" lenscap or the old one.  Finally, if this was taken with a prototype of the 16-600, then obviously, we should all switch to Nikon!

but but but -

what do DXO think of it?
I can't make up my mind about it until they've had a go with one.

and also of course, what does the master think?
no lens would ever come in to my possession without a thumbs up from Mr Rockwell.

This is not as crazy as you might think. Canon make a Proffessional video lens that is:
9-930mm f1.7-4.7 IS !
It's called the DIGI SUPER 100 xs AF.

To be fair it is for a smaller (video) sensor so equivalent is 35-3500mm and it costs a fortune.

And as we previously established, it's NOT a camera.   ::)
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

New Canon L-lens: EF 16-600mm f2,8 L USM  ::)
Some specs:
Built on Canon DO-technology from 70-300mm DO and 400mm DO, with 7 fluoride elements
Length: 485mm
Weight: 3780 gram

Box is too small.

The super telephotos and f/2.8 300s come in flight cases, which are encased in a large box, quite different from the smaller lenses. A 600mm f/2.8 would have a 214mm (8.5") wide front objective.

Impressive.

That actually doesn't sound too bad. If they got the DO part down right it could almost be usable.
Too bad about the inevitable $30K price tag though.
Sigh, no such thing as free lunch in telephoto land.
