    If they are going to redo it using DO tech, I’d love to see it as an f1.8 or lower and bugger the weight gain, leave it the same wight and build in the converters, 1.4X & 2X and let you combine them, if this was also useful for video a 20K plus price tag would be realistic, especially if it would AF with video. Nice wish, but hard to engineer I know, but not impossible for the wizards at Canon.
