There were a couple of new images on 43rumours today. One showed the PL100-400 to be ever so slightly smaller than the canon 70-200. I hope that also puts an upper limit to how heavy the new lens can be? the Canon is 1,490 grams = 2.9 pounds according to amazon.

Golly, I hope it's not that heavy. The Canon L 100-400mm is only 1380g. I can't believe it'll be over the 1kg mark…at least, I hope it won't be

I wonder if the hood is in these pictures, it would be a fixed sliding hood ?
That would be nice.

It is now officially announced, and available for preorder on Amazon. One disappointing tidbit: 'Depth from Defocus' (DFD) is noticed as "being not mentioned" in the DPreview hands on piece: http://www.dpreview.com/news/5337706...3-lens?slide=9

ephotozine states "DFD compatible" so hopefully false alarm from DPreview.
