"Along with the 85mm f1.8, 100mm f2 and 400mm f5.6 it is one of the shamefully overpriced antiques in the Canon lineup that just manages to scrape by on account of reputation."

Yet those three lenses have yet to be updated so folks keep using them. Oh and by an update I don't mean a version with the same focal length but 5x the price.
EOS 5D3, EOS M5 and no room left in the 1510.

The 400 f/5.6L still doesn't have an equivalent in quality, AF speed, light weight at the price. You can get a used or refurbished one for 800.00 to 1,000.00. For specialized uses, it is unique. For most people, the Canon or 3rd party zooms are preferable for the IS.
