Have you pre-ordered the 200-400 or do you plan to order in the future?

How could I resist?  I want to be the first on the block to have this new bad guy!

Who has pre-ordered or will order 200-400

just wonder if many people will jump on this opportunity.

Grant it is a lot of $ but then again we have had ample warning this day would arrive.

I put myself in line last night, not sure I won't cancel my pre-order (or perhaps I can sell my place in line)

There are very few things in life that would get my wife to divorce me, but buying this lens is on the short list. :)

Lol, and I got the 600 II.  But that meets my needs more than the 200-400, since 840mm f/5.6 is better for me than 560mm f/5.6. 

I'd still like an updated 100-400L, though, as a more portable option.

I ordered two.  Always good to have backups.

I think there should be another option: I'd get it but I want to stay married...

Same here - large aperture superteles are fun and all that, but most of time I want something that can fit in my usual camera bag and doesn't weigh me down too much.
Current Kit: Some cameras and a bunch of lenses, maybe even a tripod or two

Finally! I pre-ordered one back in 2011. It's been a loooooong wait, and still is...

Why is that a concern?  I shoot sports and I won't be getting the lens, because I like shooting at f/2.8 or f/3.2 for isolation of the player.  I just don't think I'd handle f/4 at night games/matches.

I'm saving my change, but if an update to the 135f2 came out I'd be all over that like rabbits at a salad bar.

For an ave Joe (like me), spending nearly $12K on single lens is too MUCH. I'll wait for 100-400 II and hoping the price tag won't go above $3K :-\

For the Pro(s) making $ from photography, this should be an easy purchase ;D
