Why no afordable 400f/4?
Feb 9, 2013

I posted this in 3rd party lens forum by mistake, so will ask here in the correct forum! Canon do a 300f/4 IS L that is reasonably affordable, £1250 &, a 400f/5.6 for about the same. The 400f/4 IS is a whopping £5500! why nothing in between like a 400f/4 without IS? would it be possible for them to do this for £1500 or so? I only took photography just over a year ago, so not really up on this sort of thing.
