Canon 200-400mm Zoom With Built in 1.4x Tele Converter
I have a 100-400mm mk2 which is amazing. I am thinking of stepping up to a 200-400 with 1.4 ex. (tele extender)
One thing that I have noticed is that there are a lot of these available second hand.
I presume that after people have had the lens later trade it in.
So, the question is: what do people then trade up to? 600mm? 800mm?
I would really like to know before I buy the wrong lens.
Thanks for your questions about upgrading from the Canon EF 100-400mm II. This is a fascinating topic because of the large amount of money involved.
First of all, I have to come clean and let you know I've never used the 200-400mm, although I took a serious look at it also. I graduated from a 400mm f/5.6, which I loved, to a 100-400mm Mark II also.
My biggest disappointment is that I lose auto-focus with 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 combined a 1.4x II tele converter when used with a Canon 70D or a 5D Mark II.
