Chris,

I have a 400mm f5.6 L, but the IS is lacking for me. I thought about the 400mm f4 DO, but it has a lot of mixed reviews. My experience with extenders is not that good (400mm f5.6 L and 70-200mm f2.8 L IS + Canon 1.4x II). I want a lens with which I can travel, then 500mm L and 600mm L are out. Zooms does not interest me. Your post piqued my curiosity. I was wondering if a 300mm f2.8 L with a 1.4x TC can have a quality as good as the 400mm f5.6 L and focus at a speed acceptable. What do you think?
