I've proposed this before

Get rid of:

100-400L
400/5.6L
300/4L IS

Replace with:

100-400L II - f/3.5 at 100mm, f/4.5 at 300mm, f/5.6 at 400mm
Sharper and faster focusing than 400/5.6L
Best available IS performance
Better handling
Weather sealing
$2,000

Bonus: Design to be used really well with 1.4x TC, and release in combination with 1.6-crop high-pixel-density camera that can AF reliably and quickly at f/8.
