I’m not a big gear freak, well not as bad as some… But I have to admit that I am rather excited by Canon’s latest official announcements. This morning they have announced the development of a new super zoom… a 200-400mm f4 with a built-in 1.4x extender. Its going to be expensive, that’s for sure, but what a lens this has the potential to be!
Going from 200mm at f4 all the way to 560mm at f5.6, without having to take it off your camera to fit an extender, so no chance of dust attacking your sensor, or dropping something as you fumble to fit it all back together, this is truly ground breaking.
For sports, news and wildlife photographers, I can see this being a must have lens, almost to the extent that we all rely on our 70-200mm f2.8’s today.
