Had me going until I saw the box reads "lens hood included".  Canon would sell that separately.
Canon 6D; Canon Lenses: EF 70-200 f/2.8L IS II; EF 24-105 f/4 L; EF 85 f/1.8; EF-S 17-55 f/2.8; Canon 1.4x Mk. III T.C.; Sigma Lens: 35mm f/1.4 "Art"

You did not need to go in such trouble. You could just mention the EF100-400mm L lens successor post. There is a rumor for this lens every year  ;D  ;D  ;D

If only you could fit a 600mm L lens in a LP1319 case, and get the same IQ etc ........  :o ;D
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

This is REALLY annoying!!!!

Every rumor of this lens said it would be f/2.0. What the hell happened?

I'm sending a letter to my Japanese Senator!!!
Walter: Were you listening to The Dude's story? Donny: I was bowling. Walter: So you have no frame of reference here, Donny. You're like a child who wanders into the middle of a movie and wants to know...

I can see a typo here. It is 16-1600. Hence no f2...

The weight is also missing a "0" and the length is all wrong... ::)

LOL, I guess the most important aspect missing here is the price!
