Love the lens, love the push-pull, would buy a new one with upgraded IS (and maybe, drool, f4 throughout) in a heartbeat.

+1 on the update, but not so much on the F4. Suspect that would end up weighing a ton more than the current lens. After a 6 hour air show at the weekend, really noticed the current weight....

What's more natural that a push pull action LOL I have always loved the 100-400 but just recently traded for the 400 5.6 and so far I am happy but I still miss the zoom and have missed shots because of not having it.

I can dream, can't I???

:D yeah you can! I have the same dream! A lightweight push-pull 100-400 f/4 with 4-5 stops of IS and a MFD of 40cm :D
Damn you laws of physics, damn you!

I obtained my 100-400 L IS from a friend of mine.
Not knowing muck about the Push-Pull design, I was a little concerned at first. After a few minutes and all concerns were gone.
Every time I use the 100-400 L IS I start humming Tommy Dorsey and Glen Miller tunes.
