I have an ageing  EOS 50D and $2,000 burning a hole in my pocket.  Waiting on you Canon?  What can you do for me?

I rather see a 400/5.6 with IS than a 100-400. Why? Cause you'll be shooting at 400 almost all the time!

The recently released zooms (70-200, 24-70 based on MTF) are beating older primes in the same range.  If the new 100-400 follows suit, there likely will not be a lot of IQ difference.  So...I see big advantages in the zoom: 1) when you want to shoot shorter than 400mm (air shows, birds flying toward you) and 2) much shorter retracted length.  For me, #2 is a huge advantage of the current 100-400mm over the 400/5.6 prime.

A new 100-400 would be appriciated, but I still think the 200-400 will start shipping before the announcement!

Hope your right about the 200-400, so want to get my hands on it!!!

Im guessing $2999 street

.
You clearly haven't internalized the new Canon pricing strategy.

This new lens will be over $3K USD, perhaps well over it. Resale value on the old model will remain steady, or increase.

Three more DSLR announcements?

Too early for the 1200D, but then again - Canon takes so long to deliver, an announcement on Photokina might have the body delivered just when expected anyway, that is Q4 of 2013. Two other might be the 7Dm2 & new 70D.

A bunch of new lenses are coming down the pipeline from Canon? If a competitively priced 14-24mm f/2.8 is not one of those, my next U.S.$X,XXX (money in saving account till next year) would be a Nikon body + Nikkor 14-24mm f/2.8.

My bet is a combination of EF-M lenses, and a combination of lenses that have at least 2 of 3 attributes: over-priced, under-speced, and late-to-deliver.

That would be nice for current owners.  From what I've seen, resale value of the 100-400mm is much lower than most other L-series lenses, I routinely see them on CL in the $1100 range.  Popular lens, so more supply on the used side.

i'm guessing the 24-70 II , the 24 f/2.8, the 28 f/2.8 and the 500 and 600 mm?


Dont forget EF 40 f/2.8 STM - its EF lens too  :)

And the EF-M 22mm and the EF-M 18-55mm those are lenses.

Good point, but if the 100-400 IS has IQ equal too, or better than the current 400 5.6, you might as well have the range!

Wild guess: Those lenses (the ones in the background also appear to be 200-400's) are in London waiting for CPS sports photographers to borrow or buy them.

I think the 100-400 will come in at $2200.   Not higher than $2500, imho.  Canon prices have been high lately but I think $3000 is a bit pessimistic. 

Nikon is due for a refresh of its corresponding model as well.   Competition is good.   Right now the D600 is looking good based on rumored specs.   A 100-400 without the push-pull would help keep me in camp Canon -- but if the new Nikon equivalent is several hundred dollars cheaper... advantage Nikon.

This is getting interesting...

I don't think I could justify getting a new 100-400L if it's priced higher than the still fairly new Sigma 120-300 2.8 with OS. I'm impressed with the quality of the images I've seen from this lens, and Canon has nothing to match it.
