I have decided to purchase the 100-400mm L series zoom lens (with image stabilization) for my Canon EOS 20-D. Last week, I read that this lens may be updated very soon. If so, I can wait. Has anyone heard about this? Might Canon be considering changing the zoom from a push-pull to a rotating ring?

Thanks,
Rich

That rumor has been going around for at least the last 2 years. It was going on 15 months ago when I bought my 100-400 and there is still no replacement for the lens.

I would not expect any announcements until the next photo show in February. In the next 2 months you can expect to hear rampant speculation regarding what new cameras and lenses Canon is releasing - like the new 50-400 2.8 EF-S lens

So far every redesigned L seems to cost higher than their older lenses:
The 85mm f/1.2L or the 70-200 f/4L IS... are several examples

-> Another thing to consider...
