I bet that will have a nice price tag on it, but I would not mind swapping out my 400mm f5.6 for it.

Having a built in 1.4X Extender that can be enabled at the flick of a switch would be superb. It'll be interesting to see what the weight of the lens is and also the price.

This is no 100-400 replacement.

This is a much bigger, much much much more expensive lens.
5-6k on release would be my guess too.

Probably the precursor to a fast full frame body, is one way of interpreting the inclusion of an internal t/c, strange indeed, the extender will need to be good.

Should be a good as the new MK3 stand alone version - maybe even better if they tailor the design for the new lens.

precursor to a fast full frame body? Maybe, but it's a very usefull feature to have no matter what body you mount it on.

As I understand, the Nikon version, has been one of the bigger reasons why a number of pros moved from Canon to Nikon a few yeas ago - so maybe Canon are just trying extra hard to trump Nikon?

5-6k is very optimistic. Maybe 5-6k after a year or two but at launch 7K+ IMO. Bear in mind the new 500L II is 9500 at launch and the 300 f2.8II 7500.

Depending on its price and weight I wonder if this lens might replace the 300mm f2.8 IS L's position as the "walkaround" wildlife lens that many I know use it for. I'm certainly excited (70-200mm + 200-400mm sounds like a very nice combo!) though the price I agree will easily be pushing 7+ on release.
Sadly its also only a development notice so it might be a year or more before it actually gets its release notice - time to save for us mortals, but still a long while to wait still.

I was thinking that as well, probably closer to 8-10k at launch, which they say is scheduled for 2011, but that probably means late 2012 before it is available in the UK.

Matt, I think the recent 70-300 is effectively the 100-400 replacement.
