I am not asking anybody to do a hand hold test for me, I am suggesting they do it for themselves and put the "reach advantage" myth to death once and for all.

Maybe you don't see a difference, but I do.

Three cameras (5D, 20D [same pixel size as 5DII]), T2i [same pixel size as 60D/7D]), two different lenses (100-400L, 70-200/2.8L IS II), two different targets, all handheld, all with AF, all the same result - smaller pixels win easily.

Neither lens was shot at optimal aperture or focal length (70-200 at 200mm and f/4, 100-400L at 300mm and f/5.6).

The 400 f4 DO is a surprise.  It's "cool" in one way as it shows Canon is still working on DO lenses, so it might prove quite popular if it can combine great IQ in a smaller and lighter package.   But it's only "interesting" to me from a technical perspective, in the same way the 200-400 w/1.4 extender is--interesting to read about and dream about, but way beyond the price I can afford.  A 100-400 replacement though is something I could realistically save for and purchase, so I do hope they do release one soon!  I'd think the 100-400 is more due for replacement than the 400 f4 DO and it is likely to be a bigger 'volume' seller.

it's trivial to show the difference, even using AF and hand-held
sure in some cases AF may miss enough it won't matter or you set shutter too low, etc. but there are plenty of times you can get the advantage real world

I would love to see Canon make a higher quality version of the 50/1.4 or 50/1.8, and an IS version of the 85/1.8.  Make them as good as the 35/2 IS.

I would also really love to see an IS 50mm. Even a f2.0 if it was tack sharp wide open.

I shot my first all prime weddings last week and reluctantly used the 50mm 1.8 as I hear so much bad news about the 1.4 and the 1.2 is totally out of my price range.

I got by and the shots are decent but nothing compared to the 100mm f2.0 that I reached for whenever possible.

Not hearing much noise about a new 50 though despite so many rumours in recent years.

The Sigma 50 Art looks awesome but the size / weight makes it really unappealing for me.
