That'd be awesome, but big and expensive. What would be your guess price tag...$8500....or do you think it would it sit next to the 2-4f4 price tag of $11,000?
The 300II sits at $6100 and your lens would be a markedly more complex design.

I would hope it would be more like $6,500.00-$7K (street)

Think SIGMA 120-300mm f/2.8,. only a little lighter. (Canon makes them lighter most of the time)

Sigma had this lens back in 2004,. I am amazed that Canon has not doe it yet.

EDIT, oh wait, your having the 1.4x inline like the 200-400mm? Now you've lost most of the buyers due to weight and cost IMHO. Yes, It would be more like $11K based on the exorbitant price of the 200-400mm. It would be almost the same size and weight.

IMHO the 200-400mm is extremely overpriced.
In fact the 200-400mm @ f/4 ( - the built in 1.4x) is virtually the exact same lens element math that one needs to make the SIGMA 120-300mm,. which costs less than half and weighs a good deal less to. The internal 1.4x is a cost weight booster to be sure.

I think a straight 100-300mm f2.8 IS (or 150-300) would be really popular, and would sell way more at, say $7500, than one with a built in 1.4x pushing $10K+. That would put them on the used market around the $5500+ price range.

And I bet it'd pair really well with the mark 3 extenders.
1.4x = 140-420mm f4 IS
2xIII = 200-600mm f5.6 IS

Sweet
