I'd like to see a 400mm f/4L IS, that is not a DO one for a decent price, around 3000-3500 dollars.
Unfortunately, as someone else said, a 400 f4 IS would never be so inexpensive. If Canon made this, in a non-DO version, it would cost around $6000 or $7000.

And even if you want 600mm or 800mm, you can pick up a lens for about $200~$300. However, the quality will not be anywhere near the $6000 lens but then, you get what you pay for when it comes to lenses at least.
A new Canon 600mm or 800mm for $6,000 - now that would be a steal! They are actually double that amount right now, and it doesn't seem that prices will ever drop from that level, as they are constantly out of supply and Canon has had trouble manufacturing these lenses fast enough to keep up with demand, even with the $12,000 price tag.
"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
