I'm looking forward to these releases to buy the 'older' and therefore cheaper versions.
Gotta love a bargain
Well give it a year or two. Because at first, as others have indicated, we are likely to see 50%-80% price spikes on the new models. Which will, if anything, put upward pressure on used ver 1s.
300 f/4L IS II Expect this lens to arrive sometime in 2011 or early 2012. If what is mentioned next is true, then f/4 lenses may become more in demand as photographers aim
to carry a lighter camera bag.
Or, aim to carry a heavier wallet after buying a new lens...
Personally, instead of a refreshed 300/4 IS, I'd vastly prefer a 400mm f/5.6L with IS for under $2K, or better yet a 500mm f/5.6L IS for $2.5K.
Couldn't agree more. Light and less fast is fine for telephoto shooting. IS is eminently useful.
The ISO performance of upcoming cameras from Canon will be industry leading.
This is the part that makes me tingle.
I would be tingling more if I heard that Canon was focusing on dynamic range in addition to high iso performance.
