On the 400 2.8 Prime: It appears this is in a rumor stage only, and sources disagree if this is a f2.8 or f4. It was my personal error to say it has been officially announced, and for that I apologize! Apparently I read an article about 2 other lenses being officially announced, and the 400 2.8 being rumored, so I misunderstood. Sorry guys! On the other hand, I believe Sony is just too smart to not be working on a 400 Prime, whatever aperture it is, here are some of the rumors:
