Thanks for the link to nikonians & I love the shot of the weasel. Excellent.

As it stands right now.... Yes, I do want more reach. But the issue is - weight. I'm a woman after all at about 120 lbs & how much I can lug around is an issue. So though I would love a 500mm lens I see my options as these...

1, stay with my 300mm f/4 with my TC-17E II - yes it does hunt somewhat at times (Weight (oz.): 50.8 oz.)

2, upgrade to a 300mm f/2.8 to use with my TC-17E II & have more light (Weight: Approx. 2.85 kg (6.38 lbs)

3, Sigma 120-300mm f/2.8 - also to be used with TC at times (Weight 5.7 lb (2.6 kg)
4, save up for the much coveted 200-400mm f/4 (Weight: Approx. 7.2 lbs)

either way I'm in for it weight-wise....

Any thoughts on this? your input will be highly appreciated.
