Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS II Development Announcement

Canon EF 800mm f/5.6L IS lens

I have just returned from my photo shoot in the Pantanal, Brazil. Trying to catch up on the last few weeks' photography news. Will be posting my photos and reflection on the trip soon on my Blog and website

The venerable 'Big Daddy' 800mm lens is showing its age. Canon is working on its successor and may announce its development after Photokina 2014 in September. This is one of Canon's oldest Super Telephoto lenses and can benefit from the latest material and optics improvement already found on Canon's Series II Super Telephoto lens lineup. The current model may have ceased production already and dealers are encouraged to exhaust their inventory on hand. Look for additional news around the autumn time frame.
