Funny conversation. I will just help you guys to disseminate a little more NMFAS
Rafael have strong points to the 400/3.5 + TCs (I suppose a moded TC20EIII will performs even better than the already exceptional results with TC301).
But Laura have also suggested a 800/5.6 and I am suspect about this lens which accepts very well all teleconverters.
John, think that you could reach 1600mm with the 800/5.6
