The EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Has Arrived!
« on: May 31, 2013, 10:53:47 AM »
Retail Version!
I was sitting around staring at the ceiling today, then the doorbell rang, and behold, the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x had arrived. A great sadness poured over my wife’s face, as she realized I would be gone all weekend.

It’s good to know that it’s actually real and shipping to retailers, it looks like it’s going to be a fun weekend!

I’m also planning to head back to Kenya in June if everything lines up, as it will be the perfect place to put this lens through its paces.

Less iPhone 5 photos of the lens and more photos from the lens! What a tease.

Number pad and I don't need to take my keyboard away from the desk. Batteries are annoying.... lots of reasons really. :)

It looks smaller than I imagined it, is that the 21" or 27"?

That's worth answering the door for, eh?

I think you might be gone longer than a weekend. At what point should we send a search party?

Trying...NOT...to....be...jealous....

Forget it.  I am.  ;D

Looking forward to some images.  I too agree that it looks a bit smaller here than what I expected, although I'm sure adding the hood will probably change that tune.
