I will be off to Southern Africa on a wildlife photo tour. Just a quick note to let my readers know Canon will be announcing a replacement to its non 'L' EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS lens with the Series II some time in Q4. It will be after the announcement of the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II and EF 16-35mm f/2.8L III and the Photokina Show in Cologne, Germany in September.
I expect the price of the lens to be slightly higher than the current model but comes with much better technology and optics, including a small LCD display window. The EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6L IS and EF 16-35mm f/2.8L II are two of my favorite 'L' lens. You can see my equipment bag, works on MichaelDanielHo.com and follow my travels on Facebook and Twitter.
