I can no longer handhold the 100-400 or the 400 f/5.6 (due to physical handicap).

Olga! I'm very sorry to hear that. That very prospect has crossed my own mind from time to time (I live with a couple of cranky herniated disks).

I have to use them on a tripod.

Well, it wasn't too long ago that the majority of Nature photographers shot that way. Just think, it may not be a handicap at all, but rather a step up to the next level! I just know you'll rise to that challenge.

I decided that if I have to use a tripod at that focal length, I'd go for the 300 2.8 IS which I've used with a 1.4 and 2.0 TC.

Now That's the spirit!

Found a used one at an excellent price and received it last week. I'm happy.

I have a good shooting buddy who just bought one last week. He absolutely adores it. And I absolutely Covet it.

Best of luck with your new edeavors Olga!

Cheers,
R2
