Image of the New 100-400?
« on: October 24, 2013, 07:14:43 AM »

*UPDATE 2*

Another suggestion from a man who knows everything about lenses. ┬áHe thinks it’s a “28-300 with filter barrel removed”.


*UPDATE*

It seems most people think it’s the Sony 70-200, though the body does look like a Canon.


I’m not sure

Below is an image posted on the Google Plus account of Peter Norvig. In the low resolution image, a lens that I don’t recognize is being used. I have compared it to the 28-300L, 100-400L and 70-200L and it doesn’t match up with any of them.


Says Peter

“For Canon fans, you might find this exciting. A photographer was using this lens. I assert that the black stripes of the focus and zoom rings are the wrong width and placement to be either the 70-200 or the 100-400; therefore I speculate this is a prototype of the long-rumored 100-400 II.”


What do you guys and gals think?

I'm excited!
Is it just me or is it looking like a push-pull design?

Saw that as I was checking the big white to that guy's left.  Couldn't ID it either, but I haven't handled the 70-200s as much so thought maybe it was one of those.

Should be possible to get some better captures once the video from the game is posted online.

I was really excited when I saw that on TV last night. But with that picture of the Sony the lens looks very close but I think that's a canon body though.

It's very hard to tell, the white logo on the cam seems to be too big for a canon body, but it looks like the Sony logo to me.

If it is a Canon lens, the only white zooms with the "window" between the zoom and focus rings are the 70-200's... so if it is a prototype it makes the 70-200F2.8IS the most likely candidate... unless the 100-400 replacement is a modified version of the 70-200 layout.

I hope so, as the 70-200's have to be about the best longer zoom lens design out there, and a copy of that design could mean a significant jump in IQ... perhaps it's a 150-400????

However, as much as I would like it to be otherwise, I think it's a Sony :(

Looks like the Alpha 99 to me. Have been working with it. Excellent camera. Would find it difficult to do sports photography with peaking though ;) 

Cheers

Well..it definitely does not look like the Sony lens posted above...other than it is black and white...but it could be a lens that Sony is testing?
Really can't tag the camera body at all...so it is very hard to guess.  Interesting how the black band (zoom ring?), in the middle is so tight and indented from the white lens barrel.  It is, to say the least, unusual looking???!!!!!
Is this a clip from a bad, old 70's movie and perhaps we should be looking backwards ...no forward for a rumor....LOL..just kidding.

Interesting how the lens seems to taper at the front element.

It just looks too thin for a 100-400, almost like a 67mm to 72mm diameter, a bit like the Canon 70-200 f4.  Odd thing to say, but it doesn't look "butch" enough for a 100-400.
