Looking at the specs of the new 200-400L , it's clear it won't replace the 100-400: it's just too big and heavy . The 100-400L is an easily handholdable, nice walkabout lens, which the 200-400L won't be.

Where did you see the specifications of the new 200-400? I saw nothing in the press release and a Google search hasn't helped. Canon have been reducing the weight and sizes of their recent replacement lenses so I think it is premature to speculate that the new lens will be too big or heavy to replace the 100-400. I think that it is more likely that it will be just too expensive as a replacement.
