5D III in the wild?

Have a look at this ... noting also the prototype 200-400 and 600mm glass.

Thanks! very interesting. I thought the 5D series was allergic to the wildlife photography arena.

They will be very different lenses. The 100-400 is a lens that's closer in style to the Nikkor 80-400. It's a great lens, but slower optically.

The 200-400 will be the comparable lens to the Nikkor 200-400, which is fast and brilliant. The Canon though has a built in teleconverter, which should make for some interesting shooting options.

Price wise, I'd not expect any change from Au$12K.

Shikes! 12K sounds like a reasonable number for the weight of the lens and the weight you will lose, if you carry this thing all day.... :mrgreen:

Out of my economic possibilities.

Thanks, I can see now how it would be a better lens.
