Finally, I've been waiting for this lens since it was announced.  I'm really looking forward to the versatility this lens has to offer for wildlife.   Pre-ordered mine already.

Interesting that the case isn't included.  Granted, the case for my 600 II just sits unused, and I store the lens in a Storm im2720. But still, c'mon Canon...nearly $12K for the lens and you don't include the case?!?

Yes, strange one, I've purchased over the years 9 "Big Whites", all included the Case, and like you I actually store my Lenses in HPRC Water Proof Cases not the original Canon cases, but as you note, 12k for a Lens and the Case an optional extra ?? Nikon sell the 200-400 for 7k including the case, still, I've had a Pre Order in for over a year, so they had me in February 2011 I guess. Just hope the hype is all true, I looked at the Pre Release Lenses in Singapore in January 2013, liked what i could see, so here's hoping.

I still don't see an official release date, DPReview are quoting May 29th, but I cant see where Canon have actually put up an official date, has anyone ??

12k for this? ??

Stop with the smaller DSLRs with the 18mp sensors and make a FF that can match the D800 at a price point the 7D crowd can get into. You will not regret it.

I can also confirm to have read on BH Photo's site that the Lens Case is indeed included with the lens.

Kindly correct article. Thanks!

$12k and you don't even get a case?

This lens is $8k over-priced.  They'll still sell a handful but, the Sigma 120-300/2.8 OS is a far better deal for about the same aperture (100mm) and zoom range.

Okay $12,500 for a single lens PLUS case.  Is that better than a new 1DX ($6500)  300mm f/2.8 ($6500), and a 2X III TC ($300)?   For $800 more, you get a lot more and with more reach.

I'd be surprised if a lens cap, case, and drop in gelatin filter were not included. Certainly, a Dealer will include them.
 
They are available for separate purchase.   BTE, the MSRP of the lens Case is only $920 ;)    http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/ef_lens_lineup/ef_200_400mm_f_4l_is_usm_extender_1_4x#SuppliesAndAccessories
 
CR Guy is ordering one or more for his Rental business, so he will find out for sure.

Makes sense that the case would be included.  The 'sold separately' notation in the initial post implies otherwise.
