New EF 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS?

I’ve received an email saying Canon will be replacing the 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS with a new version.


The current version was launched in 2005 and has been a good seller for Canon.


I have heard stories from various retailers about the lens being backordered for a while now.


I’m going to say the likelihood of this being replaced is low, unless I hear from better sources.


100-400?

These are still easy to get from Canon, I do not see a replacement.

How about a 100-400 4.5 constant aperture?

This would be a totally different lens, almost the size, weight and price of the Nikkor 200-400 f4.
I'd prefer a true 100-400 successor with better IS and wide-opne IQ, and an only moderate price increase.

f/4.5 is a strange aperture.
Most AF would not work with this lens when using a  teleconverter, as the effective aperture drops to f/6.7 with a 1.4x TC.
In a tele, the extra 1/2 stop from f/4.5 to f/4 is precious for that reason.
Note that Canon upgraded the 500mm prime from f/4.5 to f/4 with the introduction of IS.
