    Canon announced 2 Rebels, 4 compacts, 3 lenses, 2 flashes



    Just checked all the news on dpreview, that's the summary — but still no 24-70 IS!

    Yes, those who did might be disappointed; I'm glad that my 24-70 is still "current" ;-)

    200-400 mm f/4 L IS with built in 1.4x extender. Wow.


    How much? How good are the optics? How well does the internal 1.4x work? And, can other extenders be added?


    My quick guess at answers are: Too much, excellent, really well, and as intriguing as it may be, no (too much image degradation).


    Now the question gets to be, do the 70-300L and the 200-400L combined constitute the replacement of the 100-400L?


    EDIT: Oops, in my excitement, I didn't see the other thread. [:$]

    In my excitement I started too many threads — although none of the items is even on my wishlist.


    Btw, you forgot an important question: How much will it weigh? ;-)

    I had the same problem [] But once I picked up my mind and started thinking about possible costs....back to reality []


    How much will it weigh and how big will it be are good question indeed. I'm interested. The 200-400 IS extender might be a fun lens to rent from time to time [A]

    i was happy about the about the new flashes, but sad how weak they are for how much you pay. i think it was 250 for the new one and its guide number was 1/3 of the 430 ex II, and near the same price. Even for a kicker/splash light its over priced.

    I was hoping for a new upper grade external flash like a 580EXIII or 680EX, something to replace or add to the 580EXII collection. I
