Whoops its actually an 8-15. Im interested in the extenders. Potn is claiming the retail on the 70-300 is 1500 but remember street price is usually a good amount lower.. The revamped 300 and 400 are suposedly retailing at 7000 and 11000 respectively :S wowzaa.
I am so excited for the new teleconverters - our last upgrade were just build quality not optics- this time we get optics and improved AF - that matched with some of the new M2 lenses is going to make some very impressive setups!
A new 300mm f2.8 IS L is also very exciting - lighter, better and it and the new 400mm f2.8 have focusing motors that allow for the external video focusing setups to be attached. A sure sign that DSLR for video is here to very much stay and become a part of the future of DSLRs
Maybe for some people, but I use my 70-200 for modeling shots mainly, so it's not used for reach by myself. That and the weight's never bothered me, especially since I use it on a 5DMKII with grip and 2 batteries.
They forgot to add Rebel to the name, that's what this camera is it seems. The specs is not to bad but really don't see anything to make it better than the 50D besides the extra 3MP. It even is using the SD card rather than the CF and it's all plastic body means it going to be weak. This camera is a real disappointment
