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.
