Iím personally in the camp that wants them to compete with the mid-priced PF lenses that Nikon is putting out.


I'd say that's doubtful. Canon is intent on making special high end products, though with too much emphasis on the "wimp factor" in the URS.

If Canon is going to put out a zooming teleconverter my guess is it would probably be pretty close to the patent? Also why so heated when itís literally just speculation based on a patent? I canít stand this forum sometimes, you canít have a civil conversation about anything itís insane.


Oh, every larger batch of fruits have a few sour ones. Best left to simmer in their own vinegar.

I follow these threads about almost confirmed coming products as pure entertainment. All the naysayers, all the bickering. Not much substance though before the product in question is available. Thereafter a few will find it very good and some still badly miss the gadget that Niksony has included in theirs. Canīt understand why they insist on staying with the sooo awful Canon.

A zooming teleconverter would be awesome and will be the first.
Probably that's why Canon did not make the 100-300 with TC.
They will be selling more than the old one as it will stay "permanent" on the lens.

Spiratone made a 2x-3x TC in the 70s IIRC. IQ was reputedly poot as one would imagine.

Do we know it it will accept drop in filters? the 100-300 doesn't.

No idea if it does but doubtful. I think it will be a similar design to the 100-300mm. The front element most likely will be the 112mm with screw on capabilities.

A 200-500 F4 must have a front diameter of 125mm no way it can be 112mm (500/4 vs 300/2.8) so the filter thread would around 130mm

My bad, I was thinking the EF 200-400 design being the same as the EF 300mm f2.8. At 130mm let's hope it has a drop in

Found one used at Roberts Camera in Indiana. There are used ones out there if you look. Delivery of new ones is at least a year away according to an Oly rep.
