I agree and if one looks at the ratio of price to aperture on the current line of tele's it's about 5 times more expensive for one extra stop at the same FL.  With the 500f4L at $10,500 USD at B&H that would put a 500f5.6LIS at $2,000 but I realize that is not realistic.  My hunch is though that $3,000 to $4,000 might be and if true I'd buy one in a hearbeat along with a 6D or 5D3.  With most of my shooting being long lens that's why I haven't made the move to FF as the equivalent FOV/aperture is just too expensive.  I like the idea of 800mmf5.6 on my 7D even better.
