Hope Canon's future upgraded 100-400IS won't be near that much but now Canon can justify asking $2500......damn you Nikon.........

Considering that this lens has image quality that is slightly better than the 24-70mm f/2.8 II which runs $2300, I think Nikon is justified in charging $2700, for an 80-400mm.

in your dreams : )
