Re: 100-400L successor thoughts

Doesn't the fact that it is f4 at 400mm mean that the front element has to be quite a bit bigger (and thus heavier)?

The Canon extender isn't exactly lightweight either and even though integration into the lens will save some weight for the combo, it will certainly add weight compared to a 100-400 without extender.

I really like the look of this new lens but i also really love my 100-400L (got a great copy) and can't justify spending the amount of money mentioned here (€ 6000+) to upgrade.
