    As long as it doesn't cost as much as the old 200 f/1.8 I might be right there with you.

    no fucking way! Ever since I reserved a 200 1.8 for Nov 16-18th, I was wondering if and when Canon would make another 200mm f1.8 or f2.

    I'd much prefer a 1.8 without IS though. Ohhh well.

    wait till after you use it :sadwavey: very heavy and akward IMO. third of a stop isn't that much, and IS helps with that big of a lens.

    when the 1.8 was current, it never sold. then they discoed it and it became a cult classic and its value went through the roof. they aren't even servicing it anymore is what I hear, but for the right person or price I'm sure it could be done.

    I'm not scared, bring on the weight. I really don't like using monopods (of course, I don't own a 400 2.8) and I hope to be able to get by hand holding it.

    I've hand-held a 300 2.8 for about 2 hours before and it was OK (I was shooting swimming and diving... lots of moving so a monopod is a real pain in the ass).

    Of course, shooting golf all day (like 6 hours) with the Sigma 100-300 f4 did get tiring (but my whole body was tired). The 100-300 weighs half of what the 200 1.8 does, so we'll see.

    The more and more I think about that 200 f2, the more I want one. I wonder if it will be as good of an "upgrade" that the 70-200 f4 IS got from the previous non IS version. The computer technology around when the 200mm 1.8 was designed was lightyears behind what we have today. I can't wait to hear more about the lens. (And the only reason I'm so excited about this is because I shoot a lot of indoor sports, and I'm a bokeh freak.

    low light on location work, wind or whatever else can move it, and at 800mm any movement would be huge

    :werd: It gets really gusty by my house and when I was taking pictures of the moon during the eclipse I could see a good amount of movement @ 300mm on a tripod :(

    I guess wildlife photographers will like the 800 5.6, although I haven't heard any complaints about the 400 2.8 + 2x combo (saw a lot of people using this in yellowstone).

    I'm sure the 800 will be marginally sharper... wonder what the cost will be.

    I set the price floor at the 300 2.8 cost, but I don't predict it to be much higher. We'll see.

    I personally don't think the 24-70L will get refreshed soon. It sells and performs very well as it is. It seems like Canon is...uhm....focused primarily on refreshing primes lately. 14, 50, 85, 200 and 800.

    I'd guess that they'll update more of the consumer grade lenses too, many of them are seriously overdue for a refresh.

    But that's just one "miserable" guy's opinion. lol

    haha Thanks. I think I'll be happy with it anyways. I'm dying to finish off my range of lenses. That one just seems to be unstoppable ! I'd love to have a 300 but, it would never get used .

    There's a few new zoom's too
    16-35 II
    18-55 IS
    70-200 4 IS
    17-55 IS (new)
    75-300 (or is it the 70-300?)
    24-105 (new)
    17-85 (new)

    so they're doing both :hs:

    the 200 has been on everyone's wish list for a long time. I'd think the 100-400 is next, maby the 400 5.6 adding IS

    but what do i know :hsd:

    I know about those, but of the three Canon lens lines (EF, EF-S and L), the L primes have gotten the most attention in the last year. Sure, there's been a smattering of EF, EF-S and L zooms, but they don't really seem to have gotten the attention of the L primes. :dunno:
