EF 300 & 400 f/2.8L IS II in Stock at B&H *UPDATE*
« on: August 31, 2011, 06:23:28 PM »

Update

Both lenses are now out of stock at B&H.


Woooo!

B&H has notified me that they now have the new highly anticipated 300 f/2.8L IS II and 400 f/2.8L IS II in stock. They note they are both in limited quantity.


Buy the EF 300 f/2.8L IS II here $7299


Buy the EF 400 f/2.8L IS II here $11499


Are they any good?

Both will probably be slightly better than the 18-55 pre IS.


EF 400 f/2.8L IS II Unboxing

I don’t normally post unboxings for a few reasons. However, things are slow and there are new cases and lens caps to show off. So here is the 400 f/2.8L IS II coming into someones life.



When will Canon Rumors have them?

I have the 300 f/2.8L IS II on order, however I don’t think the 400 is in the near future for me. I’ll have one in the spring.

Now that was lens porn at it's finest.  Love the slow unlocking.

It definitely looks like a shallower case. I wonder if it'll have the same problem closing with a replacement foot.

This is definitely graphic content. I found the appearance of the second ST very disturbing...Moderator - where R U ???

I want that lens so bad, and I can afford it, but I can't justify getting it. I wouldn't use it as much being in New York City.
