200-400mm f/4, think there will be an update?

Going by the timing between the 400mm f/2.8 ii and ii, it looks like we are at about the time for a potential upgrade to this lens.  Any thoughts on if Canon will upgrade it at all given their focus on RF glass.  Is it good enough as is?  Seems like they could do the magic they did on the 400mm and move the glass rearward to make it lighter.  Maybe they just wait and do the RF version after the Sports R comes out?

My shooting environments are too dark for this lens, but was curious.  Maybe better to make a Canon RF or EF 100-300 f/2.8??  I could use that lens.
