Canon EF 600mm f/4 DO BR Lens At EXPO 2015

The Canon EXPO 2015 is going on right now in New York City. This once every five year, invitation only event is Canon's way of bringing together their most powerful products, cutting-edge innovations and inspirational ideas for one incredible exhibition.

Canon invited me to their EXPO this year in New York City but I was booked on a wildlife photo shoot in South Africa at the same time, until 'disaster' struck and I was prevented from boarding my plane due to a obscure South African Immigration passport rule. So I ended up staying home.

It was too late to make any plans to attend the EXPO by that time but I am happy to inform you Canon is planning to offer more Diffractive Optics lens in the future, in particular, the EF 600mm f/4 DO BR prototype lens was on display.

Canon EF 600mm f/4 DO BR lens

My readers know I am a big fan of Canon's Diffractive Optics lens technology. I bought their first EF 400mm f/4 DO IS about 10 years ago and now own their latest EF 400mm f/4 DO IS II lens. This lens has accompanied me on wildlife photography shoots around the world and is my favorite Super Telephoto lens for hand-held photography.

A few days ago, Canon announced their product development plans to develop a 120MP DSLR camera. This prototype camera has made an appearance at the Expo show. The highly anticipated and upcoming EOS-5D Mk IV and EOS-1D X Mk II cameras may also be mentioned at the Expo, together with other interesting development projects. Keep checking back for more news and info and you can see my works on
