I should know this since I was once owned the 80-400 but, does anyone know at what focal length does the 100-400 change from 4.5 to 5.6.?

    It hasn’t been discovered/disclosed yet. It won’t be the same as the 80-400 or any of the other 100-400 lenses because it is a different design, non have had the same curve to 4.5->5.0->5.6

    I have no idea but it appears to be a stellar lens either way. I am considering moving to Z mount and getting this lens as a single telephoto solution, instead of my current F mount 70-200 2.8 and 300 4PF and 500 5.6PF .

    A lot of folks are considering replacing the 500 PF with this (including myself), but there is a niggle in my head that says both still have their place. I'll be renting one first. And we can see a 400 PF and 800 PF on the roadmap that may be better suited for some.

    I believe this is going to be a phenomenal lens. However, as a very happy 500 PF owner I can’t see giving up 100mm and not gaining an extra stop to f4. A 400 f4 PF would be wonderful! Thus, my question regarding at what point does this lens switch to 5.6.

    There is a second 400mm prime on the roadmap now. Judging by the size of the silhouette it seems likely to be a f4 PF lens.

    By second 400 you mean besides the 400 2.8 that recently got a development announcement? Hmmm... a 400 f4PF would indeed be intriguing.

    @MrFotoFool the new 400 prime on the roadmap is the same height as the 70-200 and 100-400. It was added with a 800 that is as short as the 400 f/2.8 TC.

    I ordered one with the Z9. To me wherever it switches to a narrower aperture is of no concern as I shoot mostly 5.6 and narrower. It is already rated stellar! It will take awhile for me to order the 1.4 TC to also use.

    If I get the 100-400 Z lens first I will use it on my Z6 II
