Canon to announce EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x lens in May 0

Earlier this month I posted a list of rumored Canon SLR products that are expected to arrive in the coming months.  One of the items on that list was the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x lens, which was also spotted in Kenya in January of this year.

According to Canonrumors, the new EF zoom lens is going to be officially unveiled soon. Per their source, Canon will only announced the lens after the EF 500 f/4L IS II & EF 600 f/4L IS II start solid production.

The price of the Canon EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x is expected to be in the vicinity of $11,000 USD.
