| p.7 #18 · Official: Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS 1.4X released! |
Has anyone checked to see the CPS price in Canada yet?
I've been told it will be somewhat less than the 600II but over $10K... As for the cost of the 600:
Vistek lists the official 600II price at 12,599.99. Although every store has sold it at around 11,395 since its release. The CPS price on it is $10,700. So I would guess probably the exact same price for the 200-400.
I believe pricing is now available and you should be able to get a correct quote by contacting a Canon pro shop...
Luckily I never photograph football players 'in action' at minimum focusing distance.

Ermm in what universe would you think that was my concern, unless the players are very very tiny.
Sorry, I guess my attempt at being humourous was a failure. My point being, the majority of what I expect to shoot with this lens, based on how I've used the 300/400/600 primes, is of subject matter more in the 15-40m range where this 'focus breathing' or decrease in focal length should be minimal. Granted, some will want to use the lens for small object photography, such as small birds/animals, and the decrease in focal length might be a concern.
