Stock coming to Canada
We’ve received word that retailers in Canada are receiving new stock of the Canon EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x. It seems the lens has been back-ordered for months. I expect US retailers will be receiving new stock shortly.

If you’re looking for one, send me an email and I’ll let you know when they become available at the US retailers. I usually get told as soon as they receive stock.

Canon EF 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS Update [CR2]

Canon EF 100-400 f/4-5.6L IS Update [CR2]

The long awaited replacement….
We’re told production for the EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS will be “coming to an end soon”. Production for the replacement will begin sometime in late 2013 or early 2014.

Canon’s lens production has had its share of issues in the last few years with the new super-telephotos and to some extent the EF 24-70 f/2.8L II. We’re told until the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x production reaches demand, Canon will not be producing the replacement to the long-in-the-tooth EF 100-400. All issues are apparently going to be resolved sometime this fall.

An announcement and release may depend on how fast Canon can sell off existing stock of the 100-400.

EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Review from TDP

EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x Review from TDP

From The Digital Picture
Bryan has completed his full review of the Canon EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x (we’re still working on ours). As expected, the review is a glowing one as this lens performs unbelievably well for a zoom.

Says Bryan:
“If the f/4 max aperture is not an issue for you, the Canon EF 200-400mm f/4 L IS USM Ext 1.4x Lens, by virtue of its focal length range, can replace several other lenses in your kit. It will deliver stunning image quality and should stand up to professional use. I’m still integrating this lens into my kit, but … I have been using it for almost everything I shoot since it arrived. I expected awesomeness and the 200-400 L delivered it.”
