Lens seems to be used similarly to both a 70-200 (across open water) and a 24-105 (passing hovercraft).
Preferred gear: 5D IV, 35/1.4L, 85/1.8, 70-200/2.8L IS, Elinchrom RX
Backup: 5D II, 17-40/4L, 100-400/4.5-5.6L, Yongnuo + 622

Lens hood looks like 28-300 hood.

Could this be  prototype of the 28-300??

Possibly, but do you mean the 24-300, the 28-300 is the current model(push pull zoom), whilst recent patents point to a 24-300 replacement

  • How you relate to the issue, is the issue.

Sure - prototype of the replacement for the 28-300, which would be 24-300?

There were six years between the release of the 100-400 (1998) and 28-300 (2004).  The 100-400ii was released in 2014; hopefully we aren't waiting until 2020 for a replacement 28-300 (whether it starts at 28 or 24).

looks like a 100-400ii to me. Even if it was a 24-300, he would still be zoomed to 300 if he was focused on that athlete. I don't imagine it would be a reverse zoom like the original 24-70 f2.8

Yep, I've judged watched it again and he may actually be shooting past the athletes head!

24-300 spotted again?


In fairness, the 100-400 II can focus as close as 3 feet away. I've been given plenty of weird looks while on assignment using the 100-400 II at close-focus and 400mm to try to get a close-up detail from someone's hands/outfit/etc, it looks really weird to be 3 feet away with such a huge lens!

Man, bumping this thread got me all thirsty for a 24-300L again.  Y'all suck!  :P
