Canon have also announced a raft of new L-series fixed tele's - the thing that jumped out at me was the weight saving they have managed on the 400mm f2.8 IS - mk1 was 5370g then new mk2 3850g - that is an impressive piece of weight saving.

Sadly I have not seen the specs released for the 500 & 600mm (but I have mailed Canon UK to ask weight of 500 mk2).

The 300mm sees a relatively modest weight saving of 150g by comparison, down to 2400g.
