Meanwhile there is still no new 100-400.

I thought a new 100-400 is already in the field and will make an appearance in the world cup (unofficially).

Yeah the Nikon 16-35 f/4 VR is around $1300 so that will give us a ball mark figure. Hopefully sanity will prevail and it drops to about $1K eventually. Yen has also weakened considerably in last 12 months, so it's about time we saw price drops across the board.


The newest Nikon 24-70 f/2.8 was about $1800 when released, versus $2300 for the newest Canon version. So take that Nikon $1300 price and add Canon's requisite 27% inflation and you get about $1650

Heh. Wrong math. Take that Nikon $1300 and add Canon's $500 premium and you get $1800 .

Great, just what Canon needs, more lenses, How bout a new full frame, high res, high DR DSLR
That said the new 16-35 sounds promising. On paper. Canon has really no outstanding (throughout its entire zoom range) extreme wide angle zoom lens. The 17-40L is no slouch. So this new 16-35f4L better beat it.

It's hard to say. f/4 should simplify the design and make a better lens possible, yet IS introduces additional compromises.

Great price IMO.
The 10-18mm is $ 299. If you have a 10-22mm the resale value just dropped again (I suffered the last time Canon dropped the prices of the EF-S lenses as I was switching to FF at the time).

Well, I eat my words! $1200 is not a bad price (assuming it has decent performance wide open). Same number of elements as the f/2.8 version, more diaphragm blades, 4-stop IS, and 77mm filter size. I expect to see a lot of the f/2.8 MkII versions pop up on the B&S boards soon... maybe even mine

Actually the preorders work on the tax heavy sites like Amazon, Canons website.

It also works on Adorama but I think they're having server problems right now.

I went through the process just for fun.

MTF looks nice but when will they update these older L lenses?

1998 - EF 35mm f/1.4L USM
2004 - EF28-300mm f/3.5-5.6L IS USM
1996 - EF 135mm f/2L USM
1998 - EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM
1995 - EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM
1996 - EF180mm f/3.5L Macro USM
1997 - EF300mm f/4L IS USM
1993 - EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
1993 - EF 1200mm f/5.6L USM
1996 - EF200mm f/2.8L II USM
1999 - EF 70-200mm f/4L USM

The EF 16-35 f/4L IS supplants the 2003 - EF17-40mm f/4L USM.

While we're on the topic where is the EF 14-24mm f/2.8L USM that rivals Nikons or an L version of TS-E45mm f/2.8 & TS-E90mm f/2.8?

I'm angling on a revised 135 & 100-400 or 400/5.6.

Nice - slightly lighter, 77mm filters, IS. Definitely on my watch list. The price is actually reasonable for once. I was expecting $2000+ given the f/2.8 version is $1700.

MTF's of the new 16-35 look much better than the 16-35 f/2.8L II

f/4L IS











f/2.8L II











Interestingly size and weight are very similar between the two. Price is decent. Glad I sent my 16-35 f/2.8L II back and didn't bother with getting a replacement.

Preorders are working again at B&H.

I ended up ordering one and will probably sell my 16-35 f/2.8L II for this. I'm just glad I still have my 77mm filters and haven't invested in many 82mm filters yet.

I preordered one too. Of course the most likely companion this lens would be used with is the 24-70mk2, at which point it would require two different filters in the bag, or an adapter (and then likely no hood). Argh.

Nice! For once they actually didn't exceed the worst pricing fears posted here!

Yeah the $1199 is good too. The feared prices would've been too much. Now dumping Samayang (?? 14mm is a good bit wider though I suppose) + 24-70 f/4 IS means being able to swap to this new lens even without having any fresh money to put toward camera gear.
