    Can't leave Nikon out of this fun and frolic. New 400mm f/2.8 announcement expected - possibly next week.

    Nikon 400mm f/2.8 Announcement

    At an estimated $9,500 list price, I'm sure the average hobbyists will be beating a path to pick-up one of these bargains.

    Why sad? It looks to be an update of an old lens - would you rather they kept the dated 17-40?

    I don't get too excited over new Canon lenses anymore. The new Sigma stuff blows them away anyway.

    ...and after thirty years we're *still* waiting for Nikon to produce another 300mm f/2.0...

    The 16-35mm f/4 IS is a good option for photographers who do not need the f/2.8 aperture of the 16-35mm II lens. Although I'd be interested to see how it stacks up against the 17-40mm f/4 in real world scenarios.

    I would imagine if a photog is looking to upgrade their 17-40mm without having to spend $1,500 on the 16-35mm f/2.8 II, they will look at the 16-35mm f/4 IS. Not a bad move by Canon.

    torn between the 35mm 1.4 L or the 24-70mm II L from canon.

    All depends on what you think you'll use most. The 24-70 is my go-to lens and hardly leaves my camera as it's a good all around performer.
