Please, give us a 500/5.6 L.

A good EF tele prime, suitable for hiking, with a price somewhere between the 100-400 II and the 400 DO II.

I like the idea of a 500/5.6, and “liked” your post, but, could Canon match Nikon’s price point, when Nikon outsources the production of the 500/5.6 PF to China? If Canon must charge a significantly higher price, than Nikon, will there be too few buyers? We live in interesting times.

By accident of availability, I learned to use Canon and Nikon DSLRs at the same time. I love specific lenses made by both Canon and Nikon, too much to quit either system. Dabbling with Leica-M is fun, too. I am, certainly, not an expert.
