The new 100-400 looks marvelous, but not sure it will have enough reach? If it does take the 2X pretty well—then—wow! I say!
It is the new 200-400, not 100-400. And with the built-in 1.4x TC, it will give you a 560mm f5.6. Not quite as much reach, but may be sharper than the 300 f2.8 with a 2x TC.
Right! I just auto wrote 100-400.
Not enough each—but maybe with a new 7D?
The 300/2X combo is actually very sharp—but one needs to get closer than what these images were—I am not sure I would have had anything better with my 500 and a 1.4 on. Light was bad, high ISO, not close.
For me it is a tradeoff—I sold my 800 and my 500/4 ver. 1 to get away from the weight-it is just no fun anymore. So it will be exciting to see what comes out this year. Probably never will be the perfect rig.
