World Cup started - no sign of 100-400L Mk2
« on: June 14, 2014, 10:14:25 AM »
Never had much credence in the views held by some that this mythical lens might appear in Rio - but still early days etc. Miracles could happen.

Ultra secretive Canon treat their loyal expectant customers with contempt.

The least that the Canon hermit kingdom people could say is no replacement planned at all or replacement planned for 2015, 2016....2020 or whatever.

how the HELL would YOU even NOTICE a freaking specific lens from 400 photographers stacked up around the field on a TV? do you have a special program on your TV where a camera swoops across every photographer there and showing their gear?

stop whining about I HAVENT SEEN a 7D2 or insert random lens here.

for f*** sake people.

I've seen a few 100-400 II prototypes in use.   You have to look really hard, though.  If you want to see one, check out the north side stands during the replay of the final overtime goal that Croatia scored to beat Brazil.  I also noticed one being used at the corner of the field by Mexico's goalie during a couple of the goals scored by Cameroon.

I used my just released 7D2 with the pre-production 100-400 II at the World Cup championship game in Russia as the US team bested Brazil 3-0.  Then, I traveled back in time to post this.

Even if there was a 2nd version of the 100-400, which there isn't, you wouldn't see it, because the lens is variable aperture and slow. 

-The same reason you never see a 400 5.6 there (which is what the 100-400 turns into at 400)
-The same reason you don't see that many 200-400 f4s there
-The same reason you see tons of 300 f2.8 and 400 f2.8s there

Not to mention, there's still no way to tell through the television because they never show full screen shots of the photographers.  On top of that, most updates look pretty much identical to their predecessors, so unless the lens takes on a whole different new look, you still won't notice.

How are all of you so gullible?

I've seen a white tele that I haven't seen before ever. And it was where you described it Neuro, so it is a new lens. It looks to be a little bigger than the current version.

Don't know, or care, about 100-400 MkII's, but there are not many Nikon's in there.

Best thing to do is record every game in HD and then go through all the bits with close shots of the photographers. You may be surprised by what you discover, and best of all you will have photographic proof! Shouldn't take too long.....  :o

Good luck.  ;D

Somebody gets me.  ;)  Sorry, Alan...'deadpan' doesn't come across well on the Internet.  From your reply (before you deleted it), I infer that you haven't been following the World Cup.

WHAT!!!!!
Neuro, I'm disappointed! I thought that with your encyclopedic knowledge of all things photographic you could extrapolate those 20 pixels on the screen and pick out the differences between a mark 1 and a mark 2 product...

Shhhhh...did you hear that?  Admittedly, it was kinda faint.  But that little 'wooosh' was the sound of the punch line sailing over your head, Don.   ;)

So that's what it was.... I thought it was those voices in my head saying "dynamic range... dynamic range... buy Nikon... buy Sony" so I turned up "Stompin Tom" to drown them out :)
