Today I combine the 70-200 f2.8L IS II and the 200-400 f4L 1.4x, or, when I need more reach, the 600mm f4L IS II with the 1.4x/2xIII extenders. The new 100-400 will be of interest though, if it delivers the IQ we are hoping for, meaning (sufficiently) better than the 70-200 with extenders. On size and weight restricted travel, a 5DIII type body, with a 24-70 f2.8L and a 100-400 f4-5.6L, combined with a 1.4xIII extender, is a pretty small, light and versatile package.

Having seen Canon´s latest price entry point for new lenses, I doubt we will see the 100-400 II for less than $2500 though. If it is good enough I would not even be surprised if it started close to $3000. Let´s hope Sigma´s go at the higher end market scares Canon enough ...
5DIII, 1DX, 8-15/4L, 24-70/2.8L II, 70-200/2.8L II, 70-300/4-5.6L, 200-400/4L 1.4x, Zeiss 15/2.8, 17/4L TS-E, 24/3.5L TS-E II, Sigma 35/1.4, Zeiss Otus 55/1.4, 85/1.2L II, 135/2L, 600/4L II

At least this rumour has a "deadline" of proving true or not with the Sochi Games. Will definitely either see it or not!
Ofcourse hopefully we do.
Hurry up Canon and do something with your sensors! :P

Great now I'll have to watch curling or nordic combined events to see if it's used there.  ??? :P
I am the best photographer in the world using the camera I own. To keep it that way no one else can ever use my camera.

The price difference between a 100-400 II and a Sigma 300 2.8 OS could be as little as $500. I know what I would go for. Of course again neither exist so...

My 100-400 is one of my sharpest lenses. It is truly that good and I don't think I would be willing to get rid of it until it actually dies.

This lens will doubtless be out of the range of most. Let's hope it makes the 100-400 go for peanuts.

A ton+ of peanuts at $1/lb.   I except this lens to be north  to price of the 70-200F2.8 II.

I’m not too sure how many people would put down their 200-400′s for one of these, but the mobility factor may make it worthwhile in certain situations.

If it arrives, I would probably would put down my 100-400 for one of these  :D
