Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II & EF 400 f/4 DO IS II To Begin Shipping This Week

Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II & EF 400 f/4 DO IS II To Begin Shipping This Week

The brand new and highly anticipated Canon EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II will begin shipping on Friday, December 12, 2014 from various USA retailers. We expect to see a few start shipping a bit earlier in Asia. We’re told initial stock levels are going to be quite high to match the preorder numbers. B&H Photo, Adorama and Amazon all ship preorders on a first come, first serve basis. We’ve heard reports of sites claiming their preorders get front of the line treatment from the big retailers, which simply isn’t true.

The Canon EF 400 f/4 DO IS II is also scheduled to start shipping on Friday, December 12, 2014 from US retailers. We don’t know how many of these are going to be out there or how long preorder lists currently are.

Another EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II Mention

Another EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II Mention

The reliable Digicame-Info has given a mention to the coming announcement of the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II. This backs up our recent posts (here & here) stating the lens would be coming in November.

Below is a rundown of what we’ve been told about the lens.

  • Smaller than the current EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS
  • Will retain the same aperture range of 4.5-5.6
  • Zoom ring design instead of push/pull
  • Similar design to the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS (zoom ring at front of lens)
  • Lens hood is designed to make using polarizers easier
  • Lens hood will be ET-83D (from DCI)
  • New thumb screw design on the foot of the lens
  • Obvious optical, AF and IS improvements

We’ve had no mention of filter size, or more importantly the price of the lens. I suspect it’s going to cost a fair bit more than the EF 70-300 f/4-5.6L IS just to separate the two lenses in the lineup.
