Canon is rumored to announce a new L lens in a couple of months period. The next L series lens is rumored to be the replacement for the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM model.
The successor of Canon EF 100-400mm f4-5.6L IS lens is rumored for years and the announcement of the Canon EF 100-400mm f/4-5.6L IS II previously rumored for early 2014. Now the new model is expected to arrive in August, before the Photokina show this year.

It is said that Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II will not feature a push-pull zooming system and Canon will add a zoom ring to this product.
The current EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM telephoto lens is available for $1,499 at Amazon. The new lens will be a bit more expensive when compared to the old one.
