Just wondering who is going to jump on this bad boy? I bet it will be an awesome lens.

Canon Rumors has it as a CR II which is pretty good.

Not me. I have the existing 800mm which I really enjoy. Lately however I've been considering "crossgrading" it to the 600 mk II plus 1.4x extender. That's a lighter and more flexible combination without much (if any) downside to image quality. A new 800mm would likely be both lighter and sharper (and more expensive...) than the existing 800 but I'd probably still prefer the 600+1.4x because the 600mm focal length and extra stop of speed is something I know I'd find useful.

I was thinking allot of folks would say the same thing. My first thought when I saw the Rumor. Although I don't have the 800 or the 600 LOL. But still my first thought.
