    Canon has announce the development of 2 new lenses recently.

    Here's the Canon EF 200mm f2.0 L IS USM. One of the biggest aperture around, superceded only by it's predecessor the Canon EF 200mm f1.8 L USM
    Here's the Canon EF 800mm f5.6 L IS USM. One of the longest EF mount Canon lenses on the market, second only to the EF 1200mm f5.6 L.

    More information here.

    benny, the new 200mm is an IS lens. I heard the old 200/1.8 lens is now going on the market for USD7,500 much higher than the USD4,500 when it was new.
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    I almost bought one of these in 2005. But didn't quite like the front mounted tripod collar.

    It seems like the EF 200 mm f1.8 L USM and the EF 50 mm f1.0 L USM are collectible items now.
