Would be nice - I'm still waiting for the rumored 200-600 though.

Interesting that they have omitted the possible weight!

Wonder if it comes with a free gym membership scheme?! :smile:

Quite interesting, I came away from RIAT pondering the ultimate lens. With the 100-400 mk2 being light and having great optics throughout the focal length. I thought if only a wider focal range and f2.8
The price might be the restriction.
One to watch.

Spoken to a couple of people, theyve suggested it's probably going to be an EF-C lens.

Meh !!

My SX60's got a longer zoom ( around 21-1350 , or something like that )
My FZ330's got almost as long a zoom ( 25-600 ) & is a constant F2.8

Meh !!

:biggrin:
Brevet.. Meh !!
