f/8, wide open.
I really admire how Canon tests new grounds with some of their lenses, but that does certainly not include their slower and slower consumer zooms.
Not terribly exciting.
I'd rather go for an APS-C 70-300 f4-5.6 which is equivalent to a 106-456 f6-8.5.
A more useful range while being roughly the same speed.
For instance the new Fuji 70-300 seems smaller than this new Canon lens.
But then you do not get the shallow DOF FF offers with different large aperture primes. If that is not your need, no reason to go for FF as format, of course.
