This is really strange story. Yes, the Seattle PI may have been the first newspaper to go all internet. Sadly, it has very little substance. Mostly it is a bunch of trashy stories picked up from trashy news services and totally irrelevant to the people of Seattle. It is a sad example of what is happening to newspaper journalism in this country. Good luck to the two photographers trying to survive in this sad outfit. They are just about the only substance to the PI.

This is a plea to the lens geeks. Please do not start comparing the Canon lens with the Nikon one, it is pointless. The Nikon 200-400 does a great job for Nikon photographers and the Canon lens will do a great job for Canon photographers. Comparing the two is just pointless, as no one is going to change camera system to use this lens are they? No they are not, so please don’t fuel the silly Canon vs Nikon debate anymore, it’s not what this lens or this review is all about.
semorg: The case for this lens is sold separately for additional $650, BTW!
I never use my cases for my two 500mm lenses because of the weight issue for travel. So nice that they made it an option.
I like my 30L and my 22L for foreign travel. They are a little smaller and lighter than many other bags yet hold a good amount of equipment.
See if you can sign up for the Gura Gear web site as they sometimes send out $50 discounts.
They are incredible in backing up their bags. I bought the 22L early last fall. Then in March I got an email that they had discovered a "defect" that I had never encountered and they sent me a completely new bag paying postage for the new bag and the return of my old bag. Indeed, they sent the new bag by 2 day delivery.
It was disappointing to find out that the recommended camera pack, Lowe-Pro AWII is not available anymore.
