Canon 200-400mm Super Zoom Is Almost Here

Posted Feb. 3rd, 2013 by Daniel J. Cox

Canon announced their version of the highly coveted 200-400mm lens over two years ago. On the Nikon side, this is the lens that has kept me shooting Nikon for a couple of decades. Now it’s this lens AND Nikon’s amazing high ISO capable full frame cameras. For the Canon folks, who shoot with us regularly on our Invitational Photo Tours, there has been a tremendous desire to get their hands on Canon’s version of the 200-400mm lens. Well, based on the website Canon Watch, the wait is nearly over. Take a look at this video that originally appeared on the Canon Watch website. It certainly will be interesting to see the price tag of this must have wildlife-enthusiast lens. Start saving your pennies, it won’t be cheap.

    Estimated price range $11,000 to $13,000. Still concerned with the 1.4X and varying alignment over time.

    I’ll watch the video later tonight and check this out. I have had the Canon 100-400 for about 6 years now and like it a lot. It will be interesting to see what the 200-400 brings to the table. I think the market for 100-400 right now is in the $1,300 range.

    I want one! Hard to believe Canon would come out with another in a series of “Lottery Lens”. Amazing price. Guess I’ll have to perfect what I already own.

      Bruce, did you see a price for this lens already? I have not. Please advise. Thanks.
