It must already be there with CPS discount. Better to jump on it now while they are still in stock!!


I'm not about to ask...

Good man, we must stay within our budgets.

I am waiting for 800L MkII instead.
Now that Nikkor 800 f/5.6 is out, Canon might soon follow with an 800L update.

Oh oh! Looks like the CPS Canada price is $10,710 (I couldn't help it).

Now I'm in big trouble...

Excellent idea, I'll wait for that to drop below $11,300.

thin range


Let me see if Jim pays 11,300 for my on order 200-400 and cashes in on his first dibs on my 800 that should bring it to within striking range of getting a Nikkor 800.

Robert and Jim, I marvel at your joint East-West entrepreneurial initiatives....hopefully your negotiations and labours will come to fruition some day, so that Jim might end up with discounted 200-400L and 800L, and Robert should join Moose Peterson as the only other Nikkor 800 owner on record in North America.

yes, and if you order from the USA, find out they don't ship xpress post/usps anymore
so add on the following
$250 shipping to conus
3% UPS duty
3% credit international fee (not all cards but seems like the norm)

Excellent, it looks like your supplications have been effective. Looking forward to reading your review and opinion of the lens.

Then, the lens might not be so uncommon. Whatever initial shipment B&H got from Nikon, all of those lenses must have gone to preorders outright.

You must have prayed quickly, because my 200-400 is in my jeep. They emailed me at 11AM and I could hardly finish my lunch meeting.

Congrats and have fun.

Now that leaves Peter all alone waiting. Prayer chain for Peter.

I noticed that when the 200-400 gets delivered it starts to rain. What's with that

The rain is scheduled to stop when the sun goes down and start again when the sun comes up - I will have to go looking for bears in the rain.

He got his from Roberts camera. I am not sure what the hubbub is about it. It's a beast to pick up in addition to the cost

What we need from Canon is a 125-500 f/4-5.6L IS for less than $4.5K and there's no reason they could not deliver such a lens. Weight would no more than 2kg and it'd make a nice 700 f/8. Really lacking a great 500mm affordable (relative term) zoom by any one. Maybe Sigma can deliver a superb sport series 500mm zoom.

As I said before the 200-400 price would be warranted if it were a 200-500 f/4 DO IMO.

I'd be happy with an EF 500/4L IS Mk I.

Oh, wait - I already have one. I'm happy.
