But what is this lens?

From the same site, there's also a picture of another unidentified lens. It looks like either a legacy prime between 85-135mm or one of the new Tamrons, but I'm not sure. It's probably nothing new, but I'm curious anyways.



This is the original source.

That's what it probably is! Though it seems slightly different (is the rubber ring split?), but that might just be the low resolution and the low light shooting conditions...

Well a 'light' 400mm f/4 would be a really good prime in the telephoto range. I use my 120-400mm (from Sigma) in the 350-400mm range most of the time and the f/5.6 is a bit too dark for some of my needs...
light and fast don't come together in photography. f/4 really isn't fast enough either as a 400 is still too slow for a 2x-L TC You need a f2.8 400 to make the ideal platform. It's long enough
for many shots as is and will handle either a 1.4X tc for a little stronger (560) or a 2x for 800 in the effective 6.3 range. It will focus fairly closely, and physically isn't much longer than
a 300 F 2.8, but "IT's HEAVY"

and stay tuned you will be seeing a lot more from it soon as it's going to alaska with me in June.
