Re: Anticipating the new 200-400mm

I would not sell any of your current lenses.

The 200-400mm gives you more flexibility, but it only gives you f4.0 at any focal length. It does not give you f2.0 at 200mm or f2.8 at 200 or 300mm focal length. Since the price will be probably around 10k, I would rather buy a 400mm f2.8 II or a 500mm f4.0 II. The 200mm f2.0, 300mm f2.8 and 400mm f2.8 give you the unique photos you don't get with a 200-400mm f4.0. If you want more flexibilty, get the Sigma 120-300mm f2.8.
