Re: Price comparisons

new patent pening from Canon on a 500 f/5.6 DO


Looks like an expensive design - if we take the 400 f/4.0 DO as reference with some 6.3 k USD and extrapolate this lens to a possible 500 f/5.6 DO (maybe macro too) then we are at the predicted 4 to 6 k USD at best.

Taking also into consideration that all recent lens releases brought higher prices then their predecessors I would expect such a lens to be more in the range of 6 k USD rather then 4 k USD

That said - we might never see that lens in real world though
