For all those Canon shooters looking for a more budget friendly prime, Canon have just announced their new EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM.

You can see all the specifications at B&H Photo Video, [url=http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1081814-REG/canon_8404b002_ef_400mm_f_4_do.html/BI/1342/KBID/1769/kw/CA4004ISEFM2/DFF/d10-v2-t1-xCA4004ISEFM2:ft4bvqx8]Canon EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II USM[/url:ft4bvqx8]

Looks like this is going to be a very popular lens with birders!

Cheers,
Gordon

I went as far as looking at the price, compared to the 100-400mm canon lens it's bloody expensive <!-- s:biting: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/biting.gif" alt=":biting:" title="Frustration" /><!-- s:biting: -->

Yes it is still very expensive at US$6800 but lot cheaper than the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens which is priced at US$10499!!

Actually if you want the cheap 400mm prime then go for the Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM Lens at US$1339....

Nine times out of ten a prime will be sharper and have less optical issues than a zoom lens.

Cheers,
Gordon
