Be patient. There is a CR3 that there will be a similar CR1 rumor next year  ;D

Taping three pins on the Canon 1.4x allows AF to function with an f/5.6 lens...but not well.  I suspect that's why Canon locks it out in firmware.

Yup, making more profits by selling faster lenses or the expensive f8 af 5d3 has nothing to do with it :->

Not at all, the *rumor* hasn't died - but the certainty has grown that Canon is currently skimming the top of the market with expensive big whites while retaining good profits with other older designs.

We'll know for sure at the end of the "year of the lens", but if there aren't replacements for 100-400L, 35L and 50/1.4 any further [CR1] rumors can be considered void.

Looks like it ... but I just bought my 100-400 L IS about 1 weeks ago ... this is my second 100-400 L IS lens ... the first one was sold in 2012 to fund the 5D MK III+24-70 ... despite its "old age", Canon's 100-400 L IS still packs a punch and not far behind the latest 80-400 VR lens from Nikon (in fact the build quality of Canon's 100-400 L IS is better than the latest from Nikon
