THESE NEW ANNOUNCEMENTS ON NEW LENSES ARE AMAZING.  I FIND THAT AFTER ALL THESE YEARS, THE CAMERA MANUFACTURES, AND LENS MANUFACTURES HAVE DEVELOPED NEW LENSES THAT ARE SO UNIQUE THAT THEY ARE FILING PATENTS ON THEM.  MAKES YOU WONDER WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOU THEM.  SOON WE WILL BE SHOOTING WITH THESE AND SEEING THE REPORTS OF WHAT IS SO AMAZING ABOUT THEM.  HERE IS THE LATEST ANNOUCEMENTS FROM WHAT WE KNOW THIS WEEK:

Canon EF 200-600 f/4.5-5.6 IS Lens in Testing, Coming in Late 2016

We know that Canon is actively working on a new EF 200-600 f/4.5-5.6 IS super telephoto zoom lens, and the latest rumors said that this Canon EF 200-600 f/4.5-5.6 IS lens is already in testing by selected photographers around the world. And it is highly likely that this new EF 200-600 f/4.5-5.6 IS lens will be announced in late 2016, not previous rumored around Photokina 2016 in September.
This EF 200-600 f/4.5-5.6 IS lens is expected to be a non-L lens and it will have no weather-sealing, but great optics and build quality. The most important: it will be cheaper than the current EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens to compete directly with the Tamron and Sigma super telephoto zoom lenses.  The rumored price of this Canon EF 200-600 f/4.5-5.6 IS Lens is around $1,700, a little cheaper than the Sigma 150-600mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Sports Lens.
Stay tuned for more info.
