Anyone want to comment on how soon the service life of Canon 500mm IS F4 V-1 will expire? I understand that Canon's service life of the 300mm IS F2.8 and the 400mm IS F2.8 V-1 has already expired, and how quickly will this start affecting the resale value?

where do you get the info that the 400L IS and the 300LIS are out of service? the 1st gen IS models have only just been replaced . im sure they will be serviced by canon fro quite some time yet.

maybe your source is mistaking the 1st gen IS models with the older NON IS ones?

No idea about 400/2.8L IS. But I'd always thought that the big 300mm lens that Canon no longer service is the original 300/2.8L non-IS. If they no longer service the 300/2.8L IS, it must be very very recent.
