if it should become a hige success it should be on the optical performance of the 400 f/5.6 or course

Why do you persist with this nonsense?

I have both the 400 f4.6 L and the 70-300 L. You drop comments on their respective performance, possessing neither of them. They are indistinguishable in performance, at least my two are. I've never seen ANYONE complain about the performance of either of them on these fora.

A good word never broke a tooth.

Totally agree.

The 70-300L is a fantastic lens and my copy is every bit as sharp as my 400 5.6. All anyone has to do is look at any of the "which lens, the 70-200 f4IS or 70-300L" threads that so often pop up around here to see the overwhelmingly positive reviews. Many who owned the very well regarded 70-200f4IS gave it up after buying the 70-300L.

Pretty much all of canon's new updated L lenses have been excellent of late, I can't see why a new 100-400 (if it ever arrives) would be any different. Just be prepared to pay a premium for the new one, at least when first released.
