No wonder super Tele lenses are expensive.

Chaitanya S: That usb port on card reader is convenient feature. I wish more card readers came with that. Also since I only Sd and microSd dont really mind missing Cf slot or presence of CFast slot. Looking forward to review by cameramemoryspeed before picking one up to replace Transcend reader I currently use.

Just checked B&H and its listed for $35(apprx) and not $40 which is quite reasonable.

Adoption of uhs-ii cards has been slow at best now sda announces uhs-iii standard. Lets see well this standard gets adopted in industry.

Chaitanya S: Somehow that 77D has buffer for 27 RAW shots while 80D has buffer for 25 RAW. So technically 77D can shoot a little longer than 80D in drive mode.

@Redfox88: Check specifications on product page of 77D at canon's website. They have specified the buffer depth there. 190 Jpegs, 27Raw and 19 Raw+Jpeg.

Chaitanya S: Eagre to know what the pricing is going to be of this new lens, if its below 1000$ then I might get it for shooting shy lizards and mammals.

I used to own the 150-500mm lens and really hated it when using it at long end. For me a lighter lens is quite attractive especially while travelling in Himalayas and packing supplies for 2-3 weeks of trip. On many occasions 70-300mm lens is too short and generally prefer 400mm focal length for shooting mammals at higher elevations.

I dont mind narrow max aperture are tele-end but its significantly lighter(than Canon's 100-400) and little smaller which means it will be easier to carry around. I dont think it will be that cheap but at that price(if it performs well at 400mm) it will be a good purchase over any 70-300mm lens from competitors.

chile7236: I would've liked to have seen this in an F4-5.6...

but then it would have been little bigger and lot heavier. Check Canon's 100-400mm lens and you will notice the weight saving due to smaller aperture.

Chaitanya S: Hopefully that remote will work(via firmware upgrade) with M5 as well in future.

yes, the remote will work with the pz-e1 accessory in controlling the zoom of lens.

Chaitanya S: That tripod collar doesnt inspire confidence. Also 10-24mm is quite compact, when is that lens expected to release?

It looks similar to one seen on 150-600mm lens which is quite plasticy and fragile though 70-200mm lens isnt too heavy and might be fine. Also Arca dovetail is a nice addition but that Arca swiss dovetail seems more like a guideline rather than a standard. Between different manufacturers there always are some issues with interoperability of Arca style quick release products.
