800mm f8 means a front lens group 4 inches across. You'd be looking at at least $2000 for something like that, if not a lot more.

No, stick with 800/11, but do 600/8.

That "faster" slow 600 might be more appealing to some ... but bigger, heavier, more expensive - with less to distinguish it from the 800/11.

I'm not going to knock Canon for these lenses. I think it's an interesting strategy and anything out of the ordinary is exciting after years of me-too releases. 600/8 might be preferable to some; sub $1000 600/11 will be put to good use by others.
