dpreview posting indicates that an Australian dealer will have the lens in stock on November 13. I don't know if this date is real or speculative.

Any other information out there? B&H as of today has no information on delivery date.

my local (VA) dealer has told me it is on the way, apparently i'm first on the wait list but i may be inclinded to hold off a bit to read reviews like William's as well as ensure that there aren't any early production batch issues.

Geeeze, what's the hold up already? Makes me wonder if Canon found a problem with it and is holding up the show. There are no reviews yet, it's like it just went away. I would still like to know for sure, if the inner barrel extends beyond the outter barrel, when it focuses close? Anyone know that little tidbit of info yet?

No it stays the same size just like the 85L.

My 85L extended out.

On page 4 of this same thread we are now on Uusilehto wrote this:
It doesn't change dimensions but there's an inner tube that moves during focus. Like on a 17-40L for instance. I didn't look closely but I think the inner tube moved about 1cm total from end to end.

Thanks Lauri, I thought I read that somewhere, but couldn't find it. I guess if it's like the 17-40, then a filter will seal it up.

Hmmmm. Funny, but my 85L and 85 f/1.8 stay the same size. I'm thinking you're misremembering or are you talking about the FD mount 85 (a lens I didn't own)

Even though I've used the lens on a 1DsMkII, you can confirm that it stays the same size for yourself by going to the Canon site. It uses internal focusing.to move the glass.

I can 100% guarantee that 85L mkI's extend out when focusing in -- and that you're supposed to bring it back to infinity (flush) when storing. I don't know about mkIIs, so if you've got a mkII that could be it -- since I simply have not seen a mkII.

85 L MK II also extends when focusing. I'm sure of it since my brother has one.

85L mkII also pushes back and forth a lot of glass, and yes, it does extend the inner barrel while focusing closer. The barrel and the glass doesn't rotate while focusing, so perhaps that counts for internal focusing, but the movement for sure shows outside as well.

If your 85L stays the same size then it's BROKE!

Yup. I was way wrong; and that's with a capital WRONG.I finally got off my lazy butt and mounted the 85L. It actually moved when focusing.... Imagine that.

I've been using other lenses so much I forgot but was sure it didn't. So now I'll have to retract my unequivocal statement that the 50 f/1.2 doesn't move too!

Yep, it was unclear to me as well, but I guess it is either
- the fact that 50L f/1.2's inner barrel moves slightly while focusing,
- the idle babble we keep on in this thread without getting the lens in our hands
- or the fact that Jamesf99 didn't remember that his 85L extends while focusing

Yakim has been active to post, so we will find the true cause in due time.

Perhaps the point of confusion is that unlike some. The 85 will only move when the power is turned on to the body it is mounted to. First time I mounted mine I thought it was broken . .until I powerd up the body that is.

Regards,
Randy
