The fast frame rate of the Canon EOS-1D X Mark II caught this high-stepping fawn with a couple of leg joints high in the air, making the already adorable animal look even cuter.

In addition to the Image quality test results shared recently, image quality results from the 7D Mark II, vignetting, flare and distortion test results along with specs and measurements are now available on the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens page.
 
The specs and measurements comparison between the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens and the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens reveals the big deal for this upgrade. The weight difference is huge. Even more impressive is the comparison between the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens and the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS I USM Lens.
 
The Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens is in stock at B&H and available for preorder at Amazon | Adorama | WEX.

For as long as I can remember, Canon's super telephoto lenses came in a rigid lens trunk. These shaped, lockable trunks were very protective and were good for storage, stacking and shipping purposes. However, these trunks were expensive, often far oversized, could not hold a camera body, were not especially comfortable to shoulder carry and rarely left my studio.
 
Upon opening the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens box, I found a surprise. New with the version III telephoto lenses is a sling-style (single strap) shoulder case, the Canon LS400 Soft Lens Case, replacing the trunk.
 
This nylon case looks great, is relatively compact and light, is well-padded, is easy to use with smooth-functioning zippers and large pulls, and has a round molded-plastic bottom that keeps it upright on a flat surface. A thin 7" (178mm) tall by 5" (127mm) wide zippered pocket and two strap attachment points are provided on both sides of the case. The shoulder strap is padded and strong, and breathable padding is provided on the case side of the strap, adding to the shoulder-carrying comfort. The convenient hand strap on top is also strong with breathable-padding. Four hook-and-loop-adjustable pads are provided for interior use.

My first impressions were good and upon first looking into the case, I got a little extra excited – it was over-sized at the top and it appeared that a mounted DSLR might fit. Unfortunately, that excitement was short lived – the case is not quite big enough at the top to hold even a non-gripped DSLR.

Leaving the extra 2" (50mm) of vertical space at the top of the case for an extender to be mounted makes some sense, but for that purpose, the case could have been made less broad at the top for more compact design, though perhaps not as aesthetically pleasing. Making the case shorter seems more logical to me. Of course, the extra 2" on top would make this case accommodate larger lenses. The Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS III USM Lens was announced at the same time as the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8L IS III USM Lens, but it is too long to fit in this case. Perhaps an upcoming Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS III Lens will share this case?
 
Making the case large enough for a mounted DSLR to fit would have been my preference. The additional cost would have been very little (especially relative to the cost of the lens) and the utility of the case would have been greatly increased.
 
For those who love the trunk style case, Canon has you covered. The Canon 400E Lens Case is available. Brace yourself before looking at the price. And, take good care of your LS400, because it also has a very big price tag.

While the name above may appear familiar, I can assure you it is indeed a new product.
 
The Flashpoint XPLOR 600PRO HSS Battery-Powered Monolight from Adorama is identical to its prior-released sibling except for two differences – this new flash is all manual (no TTL) and, as a result, it's priced slightly lower. For those that don't need or want the TTL feature, the Flashpoint XPLOR 600PRO HSS Battery-Powered Monolight appears to be an excellent option.
 
Flashpoint XPLOR AD600Pro Features
 
  • The Manual (no TTL) R2 twin brother of the 600 Pro TTL Studio Quality Light
  • Delivers 600ws, with a GN of 285ft/87m ISO 100, standard reflector.
  • Wireless Radio: Built-in Flashpoint R2 wireless 2.4Ghz system, compatible with Canon, Nikon, Sony, Fujifilm, Olympus and Panasonic camera systems.
  • Blazing fast Recycle time: 0.9s at Full Power rivals AC strobes.
  • Precise power output: power adjusts 9 stops from full power 1/256 to 1/1 in 25 steps.
  • Stable Color Temperature mode: color temperature guaranteed within ±75°K over the entire power range.
  • LED Modeling Lamp: Brilliant 38W LED module with Proportional and Variable settings.
  • HSS supremacy: Up to 1/8000s high-speed sync flash triggering overcomes sunlit situations.
  • Advanced functions: Mask Sequencing, Multi Flash, Slave Delay.
