    From Nikon Rumors, "Nikon officially announced the development of the previously rumored AF-S NIKKOR 500mm f/5.6E PF ED VR lens."

    Smart announcing the 500mm before a 600mm f/5.6 PF/DO lens. They can price the 500mm rather decently, then price gouge the 600mm f/5.6 a year later. Although the 500mm will be a full-frame (FX) lens it will be targeted to the crop (DX) D500 crowd while the pricey 600mm will be marketed to the full-frame folks.

    Canon updated the 70-200/2.8 IS as well. But it appears all the 2.8 lens got was a new paint job. At least the price didn't get crazy high like the Nikkor 70-200/2.8E.

    The Canon 600/4 DO has been rumored and in development forever. Obviously an f/5.6 should be cheaper to build. Technologically a 500/5.6 should be easier than a 600/5.6, but it would be more economical to produce both together using similar designs and some shared components. A 600/5.6 would be far more useful since there is already the 200-500/5.6.

    The Canon 600/4 DO will be a 10-12k lens I'm sure. Way out of the price league of a f/5.6. Re-thinking my post, I agree a 600/5.6 PF would be a lot better received than the 500/5.6 PF. And going by the comments on the Nikon Rumors site this seems to be the case. The demand for the 500 may be so light because people have the 200-500 already Nikon my decide to delay the 600. If the 500/5.6 PF isn't stellar IQ wise or crazy expensive $4000+ it will be a marketing DOA.

    Interesting to see what Nikon's marketing will be for: 400, 500 and 600mm f/5.6 PF lenses.

    I spent some time this weekend with a Blackmagic Design URSA Mini Pro + Canon 70-200mm F2.8 IS USM II on my shoulder this past weekend. It was a tad heavy and uncomfortable. The image quality at 1080p was quite impressive.
