Would anyone have interest in a Canon lens like this if the price was right? I know I would as my 400f5.6L is on my camera more than 50% of the time. A new Canon 500mm prime with f5.6 speed to keep the price reasonable and the latest 4 stop IS would be perfect for my needs and would be the lens that would entice me into a FF 6D or 5D3. I'd like to see it at $4K (or less) USD which I don't think is unreasonable looking at the price ratio for an extra stop in the 300 and 400mm range.

I would buy it immediately if it were available.  Maybe Canon will read this thread.  Us weekend birders need some affordable options. 10 grand for a lens is just off the charts.
