Canon 300f2.8 II vs 400f4 DO
Feb 28, 2011

I notice that difference between the new 300 II listing for $6500 wieghing in at 5.1lbs and the 400 DO wieghing in at 4.30lbs is less than a pound. The 300 II has 4 stop IS vs the 2 Stop IS on the 400 DO. Also the 300 is quite a bit sharper. The 400 Do is selling at $6145.00 and the 300 II at $6599.00. To me the 400f4 DO seem quite a bit over priced?

Would anyone pick the 400f4 DO over the new 300f2.8 II?

Will canon upgrade the 400 DO or discontinue and come out with a 400f4L lens at around 5lbs that takes the new TC's III just as well as the new Super Primes?

In light of this how much would you pay for a used Mint 400f4 DO?
